Golf Breaks in Ayrshire

In addition to being a wonderfully scenic part of the world, Ayrshire also offers the convenience of being within easy reach of the vibrant metropolis of Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city. Here on the picturesque west coast, there are a number of golf courses that really should be on the must-try list of anyone who’s serious about playing the game in the world’s most iconic places.

And while each venue has its own unique characteristics and personality, the one thing they all have in common is the ability to use the true lie of the land. Undulations, valleys, dunes and of course patches of difficult rough are part of the golfing landscape in Ayrshire, not to mention wind conditions that range daily from the benign to the fierce. Golf really is a proper test in this part of the world.

So which courses will you want to play on your trip to Ayrshire? Presumably the first name on the list will be Royal Troon, a dramatic links course with an out and back layout that features a number of iconic holes. The course can play long in the wind at times, but there are plenty of opportunities to make pars and even birdies if you’re playing well.

Just a 30-minute drive to the south you’ll find the fabulous Turnberry, another Open Championship venue and, to put it simply, one of the finest golf courses in the world. The backdrops alone, with Arran and Ailsa Craig in view, are enough to make the jaw drop, and as if that wasn’t enough you’ll also marvel at the need to play shots over water and across expanses of rock.

Needless to say, there are many more superb venues worthy of further exploration, including the highly-rated Western Gailes, something of a hidden gem for many, but definitely a must-try for golfing purists who want to experience links play at its very best. Another place that’s crying out to be sampled is Prestwick, a beautiful track that was the original home of the Open Championship.

And of course while you’re in the area you’ll no doubt want to see why Ayrshire attracts visitors from across the globe. First and foremost there’s a coastline like no other, as well as inland rural beauty that will take the breath away. Ayr is a wonderful town to visit, with many attractions including the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, the Lang Scots Mile and Greenan Castle. Close by there are a number of idyllic coastal fishing villages that should be on everyone’s itinerary.
