RETURN TO SAMPLE TOURS PAGE

A unforgettable six-night, six-round package, touring the finest courses on Scotland’s rugged West Coast. Just north of Troon, Dundonald Links is located on the Ayrshire Coast and features the gorse, heather, revetted bunkers and undulating fairways associated with links golf. Travel the Kintyre Express to Machrihanish on the southern tip of the Mull of Kintyre. The course opens with a demanding tee shot that must carry a corner of the Atlantic Ocean. Royal Troon is a regular member of the Open Championship rota and features the shortest and longest holes in the rota. The 123-yard Postage Stamp par 3, No. 12, is iconic in golf annals. Prestwick was the home to the first Open Championship in 1860 and delivers awkward stances along the undulating fairways. Read More.

<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

The world renowned Trump Turnberry, A Luxury Collection Resort overlooks Scotland's South West Ayrshire coast. Contained within 360 acres this luxury hotel, golf and leisure resort with few equals in the world. Turnberry's spectacular Ailsa course was chosen for The Open in 1977, 1986, 1994 and 2009. The Hotel was built at the turn of the century and underwent a complete renovation, restoration and remodeling of all guestrooms, suites, corridors, restaurants and public spaces that was completed in June 2016. The famous Ailsa Course was also overhauled with significant changes made to the links, including incredible improvements from holes 9 to 11. The changes are set to further enhance its reputation as one of the finest links courses in the world. Turnberry has a lavish Spa, with indoor and outdoor amenities, which reopened in 2017. Nearby are riding stables, sea and river fishing, rough shooting, stalking, and trap shooting.

<Day 3 ~ Machrihanish Golf Club

Today play the magnificent championship links course at, Machrihanish (tbc).  Found beside the Atlantic on the southern tip of the Kintyre Peninsula, Old Tom Morris had an early hand yet again on one of Scotland’s most beloved links.  There was a ten-hole layout here originally, but it was 1879 when Old Tom’s eighteen-hole layout opened.  His first hole is played to today from an elevated tee to a fairway angling diagonally way.  Carry as much of Machrihanish Bay as you dare but play too safe and 3 pot bunkers right of the fairway will turn this 424-yard par four into a five.  Its one of the most thrilling starts you’ll ever experience.   The entire layout is solid all of which is enhanced by its remoteness.  Golf pilgrims will find it well worth the journey.

<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 ~ Royal Troon Golf Club

Play Royal Troon (tbc), Eight time venue of the British Open Championship and venue of the 2004 Open. Troon boasts both the longest and the shortest holes in Open Championship golf, being the Postage Stamp 8th at 126 yards, and the 577 yard 6th named Turnberry. Please note that the green fee for men includes buffet lunch in the Ailsa Suite of Royal Troon clubhouse.

<Day 6 ~ 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.

<Day 7 ~ 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.

Troon boasts both the longest and the shortest holes among Open venues, being the “Postage Stamp” 8th at 126 yards, and the 6th at 601 yards named “Turnberry”.  The layout gives you a chance to find your game with a gentle opening but the inward nine is considered one of the most difficult sides in major championship golf.
