GOLF COURSE SELECTION

 

Dundonald Golf Links 

Lying next to Western Gailes, Glasgow Gailes and Kilmarnock Barassie, Dundonald Links is situated amidst some fine Ayrshire golfing country. Recognition of its qualities has resulted in it hosting a number of professional and amateur tournaments, including pre-qualifying for the European Tour and the Senior British Open Championship. It is holding the European Tours’ Scottish Open in 2017. The 4 Star Gailes Hotel is on its doorstep.

Glasgow Gailes

Glasgow Gailes was designed by Willie Park an Open Champion and he always believed this links to be one of his best creations. A classic links layout, is tough, fair and traditionally Scottish. Wild heather and gorse define the fairways whilst the greens are guarded by strategically placed bunkers. 

Selected by the R&A as a final qualifying venue for The Open Championship every time it has been at Royal Troon and Turnberry, it is held it great esteem. Sandy Lyle Scotlands Open and Masters Champion describes the course as “one of the world’s truly great tests of links golf’.

Prestwick

Prestwick Golf Club was founded in 1851. Located half an hour south west of Gasgow it lies on the famous golfing coast of Ayrshire. This stretch of golfing terrain is probably unequalled anywhere in the world. Prestwick which hosted the first Open Championship in 1860, shares its boundaries with Royal Troon. Kilmarnock Barassie, Glasgow Gailes, Western Gailes and Dundonald are all within a frew minutes drive and the Ailsa course at Turnberry only 20 minutes away.

Royal Troon

Overlooking the Isle of Arran, Royal Troon Golf Club is one of the great links courses in Scotland and an Open Championship venue. It offers visitors limited tee times on Monday, Tuesdays and Thursdays. They are 0930 – 1100 and 1430 – 1600 over both the Championship and Portland courses. New for 2009 is limited availability for play on Sunday afternoons. 

The course is only a few minutes from Prestwick Airport and less than thirty minutes from the centre of Glasgow.

Turnberry Ailsa

The Ailsa course is one of two magnificent championship courses at the stunning Turnberry Resort, the other being the Kintyre coures. The Ailsa has hosted 4 Open championships and seen some of the most remarkable moments in the championships history, like the “Duel in the Sun” between Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus.

Always thought of as the most scenic Open Championship venue, the recent changes to the course by renowned golf architect Martin Ebert may make it one of the best layouts as well.

Western Gailes

Western Gailes is one of the top links courses in Ayrshire. Located between the Railway and the Sea both of which are brought into play if you stray a bit, it is typical of Ayrshire links golf.

The wind which may come from several direction and change during the course of your round, makes Western Gailes a stern test. Its diffuculty is added to by the undulating terrain and finely contoured greens which are set within the surrounding sand dunes.

A few meandering burns, a plentiful supply of pot bunkers and some out of bound makes Western Gailes a wonderful challenge.

the course is regularly used by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club as a qualifying venue for the Open Championship when it is being held at either the Ailsa course at Turnberry or Royal Troon.
