April can be a beautiful month for golf in Scotland, with warming temperatures and bright, sunny days (with the normal proviso that Scottish weather can never be guaranteed and is highly variable!). Daylight is lengthening and in the middle of April sunset will be around 8:30pm, giving plenty of time for 36-hole days should you wish.
For golfers looking for savings on their green fees, a number of golf courses offer reductions for play in April over their normal high season rates.
A few courses also offer shoulder rates between April and the high season summer months.
