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.

A VIP Coach with Concierge Driver is available for parties of eight, while self-drive options are available for parties of four.

<Day 2 ~ Dundonald Links

Today play Dundonald Links (tbc).  Fresh from his celebrated success at Kingsbarns, Kyle Phillips created Dundonald for Loch Lomond Golf Club who wanted a classic links alternative for its members.  Opened in 2003, this is a championship quality layout with predictability rumpled fairways, deep pot bunkers and undulating greens frequently guarded by burns. Found just 5 miles north of Royal Troon, the club has hosted the men’s and women’s Scottish Open along with the European Tour’s qualifying school.  The par fives here are particularly strong.  Among the best is No. 3 at 530 yards from the medal tees.  Trouble along the right side plus a bunker left requires accuracy off the tee. The burn then cuts across the fairway about 100 yards short of the green.  Three can be reached but not without a solid tee shot.

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).   Only the Old Course has hosted The Open more often than Prestwick, the last of 24 played here was in 1925. Eleven of the first twelve Opens were played on Old Tom Morris’ twelve-hole layout beginning in 1860.  Six holes were added in 1883.  One of the club’s great strengths is variety.  There are blind shots.  Uphill holes and those that play downhill and sidehill. Greens in hollows and plateau greens.  Driveable par fours and those you’ll be delighted to reach in two.  Perhaps most famous is “Alps” the 394-yard 17th.  The narrow fairway runs straight up a steep sandhill which hides a generous green guarded in front by the notorious “Sahara” bunker framed with revetted sod and railroad ties interrupted only by wooden steps to allow you in and out.

<Day 4 ~ Trump Turnberry, A Luxury Collection Resort

Play the Ailsa Course (tbc) at Turnberry.   You can’t rush perfection, Turnberry’s Ailsa Course is proof.  It was established in 1902, modified in 1906, modified again in 1909, redesigned in 1938 then nearly disappeared after the Second World War when it was converted into an airbase with several holes flattened into concrete runways. It was restored and reopened in 1951 as one of Scotland’s finest links to the extent it hosted The Open for the first time in 1977 when Tom Watson’s 65-65 weekend beat Jack Nicklaus’ 65-66.  MacKenzie & Ebert made extensive alterations before The Open in 2009 then Ebert returned for a major update in 2015.  The result is spectacular, particularly but by no means limited to holes 9-11 that play across and along the bay atop rock outcrops on the left; dunes, pot bunkers and high fescue on the right.  The club’s famous lighthouse includes an incredible two-bedroom suite and one of the most memorable halfway houses in golf.

<Day 5 ~ Western Gailes Golf Club

Play today at Western Gailes (tbc).   Western Gailes is rated by many visitors to Scotland as one of its best keep secrets and immensely enjoyable. The course lies between the railway and the sea like many others in Ayrshire. Its only two holes wide, with nine played along the sea and nine played beside the railway.  Variety gives Western its special character.  The seaside holes are routed through classic links land with dunes, high grass and the beach. These are arguably more difficult than the inland holes which are slightly longer with heavier bunkering.  Your caddie here will often be a club member who typically cannot resist sharing the club’s story with visitors. You will enjoy a special day here.

Your Itinerary

The 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. It commands superb views past the sandy beaches of the firth of Forth to the distant shores of the golfing kingdom of Fife obster boats and yachts sail past, making their way to and from the picturesque sandstone harbor of North Berwick. Under new ownership the hotel is due for an extensive refurbishment ready for the 2021 summer season.

<Day 6 ~ Gullane Golf Club

Play Gullane #1 (tbc), 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. The Scottish Open, won by Rickie Fowler, was played over this historic links in 2015. Please note a very limited supply of golf carts are available for hire. Certain restrictions may apply, please advise your Golf Travel Specialist.

<Day 7 ~ North Berwick

Play today at North Berwick (tbc). Like St Andrews, this links starts and finishes in town. Golf was played in the area since at least 1672 but the club was formed in 1832 making it the thirteenth oldest in the game.  It came to be in the same way as so many of the early clubs -- in stages.  First it was a 6-hole layout, then a 7, then a 10 which included the famous Redan hole, then in 1877 a full 18.   A renovation lengthened the course in 1895 then again in 1932.  The course is a delight for many reasons not the least of which is how you are challenged by stonewalls, deep bunkers, the usual humps, hollows and burns without having to fight brutal rough.   The course is normally set up to play in around 3 hours so the rough is kept playable.
