PerryGolf is thrilled to offer this six-night, six-round package to Ayrshire and East Lothian featuring classic links courses on the east and west coast of Scotland. The journey begins at Dundonald Links, a visually striking design by Kyle Phillips and site of the Scottish Open. Prestwick was host to the first playing of The Open in 1860. Trump Turnberry Ailsa course reopened in 2016 after a stunning renovation which enhanced the spectacular scenery along the rockbound coast. Western Gailes is a hidden gem, presenting a stiff wind-driven challenge along the dunes. Rickie Fowler won the 2015 Scottish Open at Gullane #1, whose hills deliver outstanding views of the River Forth. The 15th hole Redan green at North Berwick is often imitated. Deluxe accommodations are available at Lochgreen House Hotel and MacDonald Marine Hotel & Spa. Read More.

<Day 2 ~ Dundonald Links

Today play Dundonald Links (tbc). Located on the Ayrshire Coast just north of Troon, the course designed by Kyle Phillips of Kingsbarns fame is a wonderful addition to the classic links courses in Ayrshire. A genuine links course in every sense, stretching to 7,300 yards from the Championship Tees. It has all the features you associate with links golf, a meandering burn, revetted bunkers, gorse and heather, undulating fairways and natural greens.

Your Itinerary

Lochgreen House is set amidst thirty acres of woodland and landscaped gardens adjacent to the famous fairways of Royal Troon and stands as a perfect reminder of a bygone era. Built by the Morton family in 1905, the house features fine wood panelling throughout with light oak in the hall and study and cherry in the dining room. Meticulous attention to detail remains the hallmark of Lochgreen House, which has developed into one of Scotland’s finest country houses.

<Day 3 ~ Prestwick Golf Club

Play today at Prestwick (tbc), which occupies a unique niche in golfing history. It was here in 1860 that the very first British Open was played with just a handful of participants. This links can produce some awkward stances on undulating fairways. Typical of the original golfing terrain, Prestwick provides a taste of golf as it was played long ago.

<Day 4 ~ Trump Turnberry, A Luxury Collection Resort

Play the Ailsa Course (tbc) at Turnberry. The course has undergone a redevelopment and reopened with a stunning new layout in June 2016. Lying on a spectacular curve of rockbound coast in the southern reaches of Ayrshire. The course now makes the most of the coastal scenery especially from the 4th through the 11th passing the famous landmark lighthouse at the turn, which is now a stunning halfway house. This is a demanding links course, and an ever present wind will make for a tough examination of your golfing skills. In 2009, the Ailsa Course hosted the Open Championship for the 4th time when golfing legend Tom Watson lost out to Stewart Cink in a play off for the Claret Jug.

<Day 5 ~ Western Gailes Golf Club

Play today at Western Gailes (tbc), rated by many visitors to Scotland as its finest ''unknown'', and perhaps its most enjoyable. The course relies on natural defenses created by the sand dunes and wind. A traditional links layout that plays in a loop with its toughest stretch along the banks of the dunes that generally plays into the prevailing wind.

The MacDonald Marine Hotel & Spa is a delightful Victorian turreted mansion, which proudly stands 'chateau-like', overlooking the 16th green of the magnificent North Berwick, West links Golf Course.

Golf Schedule

Dundonald Links image

A host for the Scottish Open and Ladies Scottish Open, the architect Phillips used the stronger parts of the natural setting and enhanced them by crafting a visually striking layout. Fortifications nearby date to 500 and 200 BC. The 15th is a rugged par-3, measuring 215 yards from the back tees to a smallish green that sits at an angle. The 16th is considered the most difficult par-4 on the course, playing into the prevailing wind and measuring 470 yards from the championship tees.


Prestwick image

It was here in 1860 where The Open was first played with just a handful of participants. This links can produce some awkward stances on undulating fairways. Typical of the original golfing terrain, Prestwick provides a taste of golf as it was played long ago. The 11th Hole “Carrick” is a fierce par-3, measuring 213 yards from the championship tees with the Firth of Clyde to the golfer’s right and a strong crosswind often howling across a well-bunkered green.


Trump Turnberry - Ailsa Course image

The course underwent a significant renovation and opened as a new layout in June 2016. Lying on a spectacular curve of rockbound coast in the southern reaches of Ayrshire. The course now makes the most of the coastal scenery especially from the 4th through the 11th passing the famous landmark lighthouse at the turn, which is now a stunning halfway house. This is a demanding links course, and an ever present wind will make for a tough examination of your golfing skills.  The club has hosted The Open on four occasions, most recently in 2009.


Western Gailes image

Located in North Ayrshire about 10 minutes from Troon, Western Gailes is considered by many as the hidden gem of Scottish links. The club provides a combination of the traditional and modern style links. Contours of the land coupled with severely placed bunkers make it a fair but challenging links. Relying on natural defenses created by the sand dunes and wind, Western Gailes runs in a loop with its toughest stretch along the banks of the dunes that generally plays into the prevailing wind.


Gullane No.1 image

A regular host to major championships and rated alongside Scotland's more famous championship courses. Gullane #1 is unusually hilly for an east of Scotland links. Once you reach the top of Gullane Hill, you have great views over the River Forth toward Edinburgh. With pot bunkers carved out of the turf and smooth-running greens, this is a regular favorite among Scottish tourists. The Scottish Open, won by Rickie Fowler, was played over this historic links in 2015.
North Berwick image

Like St.Andrews the links starts and finishes in the town. One of Scotland's earliest golf clubs and correspondingly a very traditional links layout located along the Firth of Forth. The West Course requires unusual shotmaking, along with blind shots and play over stone dykes as the sea comes into play on six holes, and is a long, often wet hazard depending on the tide. Features the par 3, 15th 'Redan' which is probably the most frequently copied short hole in the world.
