GOLF COURSES

GOLF COURSES

ROYAL TROON GOLF CLUB

Ranked #40 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World

Host of 8 British Open Championships.

In 1923, Royal Troon Golf Club hosted its first Open and finally moved out of the shadow of its famous neighbor, Prestwick. It is a traditional out and back links course. The opening few holes are relatively gentle, with a series of short par fours running along the Firth of Clyde. It’s from these early holes that you get the chance to soak up the views. On a clear day, you can see the distant Ailsa Craig in the south, and to the west, the majestic mountains on the Isle of Arran.

The course measures 7,208 yards from the championship tees and bunkers are everywhere, the majority of which are not visible from the tees. There’s plenty of deep rough and a smattering of gorse and broom to punish the wayward shot. The 6th is the longest par five in Open Championship golf and the 8th the “Postage Stamp” is the shortest par three in the Open rota at 123 yards.

TURNBERRY GOLF LINKS AILSA COURSE

Ranked #14 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World

Host of 4 British Open Championships

The Ailsa course at Turnberry is probably the most scenic Open Championship golf course. Situated on a craggy headland the course overlooks the small island of Ailsa Craig in the Firth of Clyde, with superb views across to the Mull of Kintyre and the Isle of Arran.

Turnberry Golf Club was established in 1902 and Willie Fernie of Troon was commissioned to lay out a championship course. In 1906, the Turnberry Hotel opened and it continues to serve guests to this day, having been completely updated since it's purchase by the Trump group.

This layout changed its name to the Ailsa in 1926 and a redesign by Major Cecil Hutchison was completed in 1938, when he combined the old 6th and 7th and introduced the famous par three 15th hole.

PRESTWICK GOLF CLUB

Ranked #15 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Scotland

Host to 24 British Open Championships

Prestwick Golf Club was founded In 1851, with Old Tom Morris as “Keeper of the Green”. Nine years later in 1860, the British Open Championship was born and played for the first time at Prestwick. The Open has been held here 24 times, although the most recent championship was in 1925. St Andrews is the only venue to have hosted more Opens (26) than Prestwick.

The course is a traditional British links, with a layout of holes that snake through rugged dunes and rippled fairways. There are numerous blind holes and cavernous bunkers with wooden steps to take you down to the bottom. The greens are notoriously firm and fast, some are hidden in hollows while others are raised high. The majority are quite small and all of them have humps and hollows to negotiate.

DUNDONALD LINKS

Ranked #26 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Scotland

Host of the 2017 Scottish Open.

Dundonald translates to “Fort Donald” and fortifications have been located near here dating as far back as 200 BC. A golf course existed on the site in the early 1900s but this was later turned into a military station named Dundonald Camp. It was here that D-Day landings were rehearsed during the Second World War.

Lying next to the long established courses of Kilmarnock Barassie, Glasgow Gailes and Western Gailes, Dundonald is situated in prime golfing country. The course yardage can vary from 6,415 to 7,300 yards so it can be played as a comfortable member course or as a championship venue.

Re-opened in 2005 and designed by Kyle Phillips of Kingsbarn fame, Dundonald has since proved to be a links of some repute and was the host venue for the 2017 Scottish Open. It is a famed addition to the Top 100 Links Courses of Ireland and Scotland.

GAILES LINKS GOLF CLUB

Ranked #39 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Scotland

Host of the Open Championship Final Qualifying from 2014-2017.

At 6,903 yards long from the championship tees with a par of 71, Gailes Links Ayrshire is a great test of golf while the kinder medium tees provide a fine test for players of all abilities. It is simply traditional links at its best.

Gailes 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.

WESTERN GAILES GOLF LINKS

Ranked #14 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Scotland

Host of the 1972 Curtis Cup & host of the 1964 European PGA Championship.

Western Gailes Golf Club is between Irvine Bay and the railway tracks on one of Ayrshire’s narrowest strips of links land. The club and its next-door neighbor, Glasgow Gailes, are the northernmost of the exceptional links courses located on this stretch of Ayrshire coastline.

The holes at Western Gailes are wonderfully varied. The fairways undulate gently, interrupted occasionally by three meandering burns that dissect the property. The greens sites are located in naturally folded ground, some are protected by burns while others are in hollows guarded by sand dunes. All the greens are fast, firm and subtly contoured.

Be prepared for a westerly wind that can be undeniably ferocious as it switches direction from south-westerly to north-westerly. Western Gailes is a suitably fitting name for this golf course.

LODGING

LODGING

THE MARINE HOTEL, TROON

The 4-star Marine Hotel is found at the beach in Troon, overlooking both the Royal Troon Golf Club and the Firth of Clyde in the direction of the Isle of Arran. The hotel is close to 40 golf courses and is about 45 minutes’ drive from Glasgow.

All rooms at the hotel have a flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi, workstation, tea and coffee facilities and minibar. Suites add a separate living space, a bathrobe, and slippers. Twenty-four-hour room service is available to all guests.

TRANSPORTATION

TRANSPORTATION

MERCEDES VITO 9-PASSENGER COACH

The Mercedes Vito Coach is a large van that comfortably handles 4 golfers, their luggage and golf clubs. The last row of seats folds down and gives you plenty of room for all of your luggage, while still providing 5 seats up front. It is slightly larger than a standard van and handles and drives just like a normal minivan.

For those that don't mind driving on the left, it is by far the most economical way to travel in the UK.
