This region has a kaleidoscope of absorbing natural beauty, stunning seascapes which is romantic and inspiring and is home of the famous poet Robert Burns. This is where the greatest championship of them all began. “The Open Championship” at Prestwick Golf Club in 1860. Although no longer on the “Open” rota it is a mecca for golfer who love the history of the game. Turnburry and Troon (venue of 2004 Open) are only miles apart and are well worth a visit. Playing on these famous Links courses will be an experience you’ll never forget.

Day 2
Irvine Bogside
Established in 1887, Irvine Bogside is a Open Championship Final Qualifying course and with good reasons. Situated between the town of Irvine, a racecourse and the River Irvine, this traditional links has all the variety and difficulty you would associate with a top championship course. Today's layout owes much to the design of the much heralded James Braid, and in keeping with other links on the Ayrshire coast, the rolling bumps and valleys of the fairways are flanked by gorse and heather. The Course requires spot on approach. The reward
for good shot-making is on the green, where you find some of
the best putting surfaces in the Southwest area.

Kilmarnock Golf Course

Day 6
Play at Kilmarnock (Barassie)                                       The course itself is a Open Championship Final Qualifying venue with a well deserved reputation for some of the best maintained greens in Scotland. The club has undergone considerable changes over the past few years and not only has twenty seven holes with which to test the golfer but also has much improved facilities in the clubhouse and professional’s shop The new nine holes are now part of the championship course and have added a different dimension to Barassie with a Par of 72 and a Standard Scratch of 74. The course measures at just under 7000 yards and the new holes provide some wonderful challenges perhaps no more so than the par 3 fourth hole or the quirky double dog leg par 5 eighth.
The course is tough, but is typically what Scottish Links golf is about - large undulating greens, deep bunkers and doglegs. The course has generated some excellent publicity in recent years having been host for the British Amateur Championships in June 2001 along with Prestwick Golf Club and played host to the European Youths Championships the previous year. The Open Championship at Royal Troon in 2004 saw Barassie play host to the Junior Open Championship.

Turnberry graduation to the envied ranks of host the Open Championship came in 1977.
