Golf on Hogmanay

North Berwick, one of Scotland's quirkiest courses.
Ian M. Lowe

No one celebrates New Year's with as much gusto as the Scots. They call it Hogmanay and the partying is so extensive that Jan. 2 is a holiday, too. Hogmanay's most famous custom is first footing, when neighbors tour each other's homes, bringing gifts in exchange for soup or a wee dram. That's one way to warm yourself up after you've braved the elements at these east coast links.
