Sam Torrance

Welcome to the Caledonia Best Clubhouse. I’m delighted to fulfil the role of Clubhouse Captain again. It’s set to be an unforgettable year for Scottish golf fans with the Scottish Open returning to Royal Aberdeen and the small matter of the Ryder Cup coming to Gleneagles in September.

It’s also an exciting year for Caledonia Best and we have some exciting activity lined up, not least the chance to join me for a piece of golfing heaven at Valderrama in October. Entries are open now so go to for full details on how to enter.

You can also register for updates and more from me via our Clubhouse newsletter.

I wish you all success on the course.

Yours in golf.

Caledonia Best Clubhouse Captain Sam Torrance is calling on Scottish golfers to reveal their vision of Golfing Heaven, for the chance to share in his.

The Caledonia Best Golfing Heaven campaign will see entrants submit their dream four-ball line-up and destination, anywhere in the world, with anyone in the world.

One lucky winner and two friends will join Torrance for an unforgettable four-ball at the world renowned Valderrama Club in southern Spain.

The Spanish course is a favourite with the five time Ryder Cup winner and scene of one the most iconic moments in Ryder Cup history.

Torrance, Vice-Captain of the European Team for the 2014 tournament, said:

“The Valderrama Club is synonymous with the great Seve Ballesteros and his Ryder Cup success as captain back in 1997. To win on his home soil like that was an incredible moment. It’s a fantastic course and one I would have loved to play alongside Seve. Joining us would have to be the great Jack Nicklaus, my all-time hero and Ben Hogan, another legend and a personal favourite of my dad’s. For me, a fourball with Seve, Jack and Ben would be the ultimate golfing heaven.”

He added:

“I’m really looking forward to hosting our Caledonia Best winners at Valderrama in October. For Scottish golf fans to get the chance to test themselves on one of the most iconic courses in Europe, if not the world, is fantastic and I’m sure it will be an unforgettable experience for them.”

Paul Condron, Marketing Director for Tennent Caledonian Breweries, said:

“We wanted to get the nation’s golfers dreaming of Golfing Heaven for the chance to play with Sam at an iconic, exotic, top-class course. I’m sure the Caledonia Best Golfing Heaving campaign will really capture the imagination with a fantastic, once in a lifetime prize on offer.”
