Dundonald Links

One of the most famous Ayrshire golf courses, Dundonald Links is also home to an unparalleled Clubhouse, luxurious lodges and hotel suite accommodation for unforgettable golf breaks.

When it comes to Golf in Scotland, Dundonald Links has quickly become “must play”. 

The Par 72 course, located at the very heart of Ayrshire, offers a classic links golf experience for all to savour. Generous fairways, undulating greens and a wide choice of tees make it an enjoyable test for everyone that visits us. The first Dundonald Links layout was designed by 1883 Open Champion Willie Fernie, and opened on March 23rd, 1911. 

At 6700 yards, it was one of the longest golf courses of its time. Following two World Wars, the site was almost unrecognisable. Dundonald Links was purchased by Loch Lomond Golf Club in early 2003 to provide its global Membership with a traditional links challenge. They enlisted California-based architect Kyle Phillips, who had recently built Kingsbarns, to create a links masterpiece right here on the Ayrshire coast. 

With the stunning coastal land that presented itself to Kyle Phillips, he saw the opportunity to create the ultimate modern links layout. Featuring everything you would expect from a world class modern links course, Dundonald Links has wonderful undulations, a generous helping of gorse bushes and unlike many traditional links courses, there are areas of the course that are framed by stunning pine trees. 

The most recent piece of the jigsaw, came in 2019, when Darwin Escapes purchased Dundonald Links and embarked on a £25 million development plan. As well significant course improvements with designer Kyle Phillips, the new clubhouse and luxury accommodation opened in 2021, finally giving Dundonald Links the facilities the course truly deserves.
