Be the first to hear about special offers, upcoming golf tours to the Ayrshire Golf coast and exciting new destinations.
Home to more Open Championships than any other region, the Ayrshire Golf coastline to the South West of Glasgow is packed with grade-one links of the highest order. When it comes to playing world class golf courses, visiting golfers to this prodigious stretch of coastline are spoilt for choice, culminating in incredible Royal Troon and the #4 ranked course in the UK & Ireland, the magnificent Trump Turnberry.
Moreover, as the "Birthplace of The Open", a must play for any Top 100 Golf Tour is the historic Prestwick Golf Club. Home to the first dozen Open Championships, a round at Prestwick is an exciting throwback to a different era, with both the club and the course instrumental in the development of the sport. For example, after Young Tom Morris won his third straight Open at Prestwick in 1870, thus claiming the original Challenge Belt, it was at the Prestwick Spring Meeting in 1871 that talks began on providing a new championship trophy that would ultimately conclude with the production of golf's most iconic trophy, The Claret Jug.
Take a trip across the Firth of Clyde to Kintyre and the spectacular golf continues with the stunning Machrihanish Golf Club and its iconic opening tee shot over the Atlantic. Combine this with the contemporary but natural Mach Dunes next door and enjoy a dram or two of the world class Campbeltown scotch to complete the Top 100 Golf Tour of a lifetime.

"Birthplace of The Open", Prestwick has hosted The Open on 24 occasions including the very first Open Championship won by Willie Park Snr in 1860. A distinctive course full of memorable holes, Prestwick is a living, breathing museum to the history of golf.
Running parallel to the sea, this traditional links is never other than an excellent test of true links golf. Undulating fairways lead past burns and strategically placed pot bunkers to subtly contoured greens surrounded by dunes. This is exceptional golfing terrain, one of the finest golf courses on the Ayrshire Golf Coast.
