Ayrshire and the West Golf Packages

Ayrshire and the West Highlights

Ayrshire Golf Tours to Scotland’s west coast offer the chance to combine some of the most famous and historic Open Championship venues with some of the greatest “hid-den links” to be found in all of Scotland! Many Scotland vacation packages rush in to Ayrshire for a round at Turnberry and Royal Troon before quickly heading over to St. Andrews. There’s nothing wrong with that especially for golfers taking their first Scot-land golf trip but there are many advantages to saying while in Ayrshire on your golf tour! First and foremost golfers can include Ayrshire golf’s most historic course, and next to St. Andrews the most historic in all of Scotland—Prestwick Golf Club, birthplace of the Open. Think about it for a second—the first Open Championship was played at Prestwick in 1860, BEFORE Abraham Lincoln was President! How can you visit Ayr-shire on your Scotland golf tour and not play Prestwick? Farther up the Ayrshire coast is a trio of great links courses that don’t see their fair share of Ayrshire Golf Visitors—first and foremost Western Gailes which was the original “hidden gem” of golf in Ayr-shire. Gailes Links of Glasgow Golf Club, and Loch Lomond’s Dundonald Links round out three links courses so close together you could walk all 54 holes without moving your car! There’s even more to the west of Scotland than Ayrshire especially for the more adventurous golf traveler—ferries to and from Ayrshire can take your golf trip from Ayrshire first to the Isle of Arran and then to the Kintyre Peninsula and on to magical Is-lay for courses like The Machrie, Machrihanish, and the 12-hole Shiskine. Yes, Ayrshire eventually will demand more than just a day or two, we encourage you to do Ayrshire right and spend more than a few days here on your Ayrshire Scotland golf vacation!
