Western Gailes

En av mina absoluta favoritbanor när det kommer till allt från atmosfär till lay out till vyer. Redan när du glider in på parkeringen ser du banan som breder ut sig mellan dig och havet. Det känns orört, naturligt och så äkta. Än bättre blir det när du gång på gång får klättra upp på dessa sanddyner. Som bana betraktad är vinden din största motståndare och utan den så …

Millport Course

Turned up on spec and were warmly welcomed. From the initial booking to the members we met on the course to the girls serving our snacks after from the bar.

The course was in great condition and every hole was a feature hole.…

Turned up on spec and were warmly welcomed. The views on all sides, looking over the west coast line of Scotland were wonderful. The course was in great condition and every hole was a feature hole. A genuine golfing challenge with a mix of par 4s and par 3s which required a thoughtful game. It took all our time not just stand and stare at the surroundings and play this …

Western Gailes

The golf shop is basically closed (you can get a logo ball or tee marker though if you ask) and the clubhouse is littered with one way signs so that people can keep social distance. The lo…

North Gailes Golf Course

Play golf in North Ayrshire

When visiting North Ayrshire for a golf break, then the best place to stay would be Irvine. You will find the best golf courses of North Ayrshire located close by, like Western Gailes Golf Club, Dundonald Links Golf Club, Gailes Links - Glasgow Golf Club and Irvine Golf Club. Dundonald - formerly known as Southern Gailes - was bought in 2003 by Loch Lomond Golf Club. The Isle of Arran - the jewel in the crown of North Ayrshire - offers 7 decent golf courses. Shiskine Golf Club, offering just 12 holes, is probably the best-known course on the island and highly rated by golfers. Although North Ayrshire is very suitable for a golf holiday, there is much more to explore. Visit the Isle of Arran, sail the sheltered waters of the Firth of Clyde or visit the island of Cumbrae, home to Scotland’s smallest cathedral - the Cathedral of the Isles. Ayrshire is served by Glasgow Prestwick International Airport (PIK), which is primarily a destination for low-cost airlines. Prestwick Airport can be reached directly from European cities including Brussels, Dublin, Frankfurt, London, Milan, Oslo, Paris, Rome and Stockholm. The airport has its own railway station, with direct links to Glasgow Central Station (a 45-minute journey) and to Ayr (7 minutes).
