Golf in Ayrshire and South West Scotland

The South West is simply one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland and being home to over 100 golf courses remains one of the most popular regions of the home of golf. It is a refreshing mix of famous names and hidden gems, not to mention its fair share of Open qualifiers. Aside from its attachment to Robert Burns and whisky, the region is also the dwelling place for three of the world's most treasured links courses, Turnberry, Royal Troon and Prestwick Golf Club. Saying that, the mix of parkland, heathland and moorland courses allows a rich variety of golfing treasures to be experienced.

Celebrated tracts that are modern classics sit side-by-side relative unknowns, a common and much valued asset that comes with the territory in Scottish golf. Here, you can follow the Open trail, while taking in lesser-known beauties like Southerness, Machrie Bay and Dumfries and County. Welcoming little towns such as Kirkcudbright and Dalbeattie, only a quick drive from Dumfries, play host to a number of inviting layouts.

Craigieknowes, Colvend and Brighouse Bay will present even the most skilled player with a challenge that won't easily be forgotten.

In Ayrshire, you can take your pick from respected courses in the shape of Western Gailes, Glasgow Gailes and Southern Gailes, now under the ownership of Loch Lomond. Outside the likes of Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry, green fees in the Southwest are comparatively cheap.

Prices for accommodation aren't too far off the mark either and, because the region boasts a number of popular golfing towns, typical golfers' lodgings are easy to come by.
