The 19th Hole
by Jonny McCormick
The Ryder Cup will be contested on Scottish soil for the first time in more than 40 years in 2014. Scotland is the home of golf and boasts the world’s most iconic links courses. As the U.S. prepares to challenge Europe in the tournament, we survey the whisky offerings at Gleneagles—the Ryder Cup venue—and other luxury hotels associated with Scotland’s mighty championship golf courses. The results? Have no fear: after tackling the testing fairways and greens, you’ll find a treasure trove of whisky waiting for you at the 19th hole.
