Dundonald Links


Only opened in 2003, Dundonald Links has quickly become recognised as one of Europe’s “must play” links courses. Designed by Kyle Phillips, the course has played host to the Senior British Open Championship and in July 2017 the Scottish Open will be played here for the first time. 


Wedged between Gailes Links, Kilmarnock Barrasie and Western Gailes, and just up the road from Prestwick, Troon and Turnberry, ​Dundonald Links is a highly playable course, thanks to wide fairways and large greens, with small patches of gorse throughout and deadly bunkers. The course is relatively flat and offers pure and traditional links golf with plenty of undulations on a course that belies its age.


Western Gailes


If you enjoy the challenge of links golf, Western Gailes will test your skills to the limit. Regarded by many as the hidden gem of Scottish links this 18 hole, par 71 course should be on all golfers 'must play' lists. 

The reputation of Western Gailes as one of the game’s finest and more exacting courses has spread worldwide as evidenced by its numerous visitors from around the world including golfing legends from this and the last century. 

The course is situated between the railway and the sea, so typical of the classic Ayrshire links courses, with both being very much in play for the errant golfer.  It is also special amongst seaside courses that are no more than two holes wide, in having its clubhouse in a more or less central position leaving seven holes to the north and eleven to the south.

The course is never other than an excellent test of true links golf.  Any change in the strength or direction of the wind, that usually varies between south-westerly and north-westerly off the adjacent Firth of Clyde, provides new challenges that are compounded by the undulating terrain and finely contoured greens cleverly located and set in the folds of the surrounding sand dunes. Together with the line of dunes running down the coastal stretch from the 5th to the 13th holes, the out of bounds wall from the 14th onwards, the plentiful supply of pot bunkers plus the meandering burns, all combine to present variety and a memorable challenge.


Gailes Links


Gailes Links has hosted major championship tournaments through the years and was designed by legendary golf architect Willie Park Jnr of Musselburgh. It was opened in 1892 by Glasgow Golf Club, the 9th oldest golf club in the world.

Its West Coast setting and fabulous condition makes it ideal for summer and winter golf in Scotland. It is a world class links course which attracts players from every corner of the globe. Gailes Links is an R&A preferred championship links course in Ayrshire close to Open venues at Royal Troon and Turnberry.

At 6903 yards long from the championship tees with a par of 71, Gailes Links is a great test of golf whilst the kinder medium tees provides a fine test for players of all abilities. It is simply traditional links at its best.

The challenge starts with a steady stream of four consecutive par fours followed by the signature hole, a par five dog-leg with out-of-bounds to the right and a treacherous green that’s guarded by strategically placed sand traps. It then lets up with a neat par three, only to bite back with another demanding run of five par fours. With its undulating fairways, fine greens and subtle qualities, it is an honest test of golfing skills in true links fashion.
