Golf under the Sun on Scotland’s Championship Coast


Southwest Scotland






April- October


From $2,350/ golfer*

The most concentrated collection of Open venues is actually in Scotland’s southwest, including the championship’s first host Prestwick, as well as its most sumptuous, Turnberry. We recommend spending several days experiencing the history of Ayrshire before journeying to the somewhat remote peninsula of Kintyre, where a magical golfing adventure awaits.

Pick Your Trip Duration

Based on our own experiences and those of our past clients, we’ve built 2 bucket list golf trips which we think you will love:


Western Gailes

Royal Troon


5 Nights, 4 Rounds


What You Can Expect:

Only Ayrshire can claim three Open Championship host courses within 25 miles (Turnberry, Royal Troon, Prestwick), so that lays the foundation for this great trip. There are several other worthy options to fill out a four-round itinerary based in Troon, but we prefer the classic layout at Western Gailes. If you find yourself wanting a 36-hole day: Dundonald Links, Turnberry’s Robert the Bruce Course, and Glasgow’s Gailes Links are all nearby and worthy additions to your itinerary.

From $2,350*


Western Gailes

Royal Troon



Machrihanish Dunes

7 Nights, 6 Rounds


What You Can Expect:

We think the perfect golf trip offers variety and that’s why this somewhat unique itinerary is one of our favorites. You will start in the well-traveled Ayrshire, with the likes of Troon and Turnberry, but then we recommend a detour across to the Kintyre Peninsula with a few nights in Campbeltown. You will fill a bit detached from the world at Machrihanish and Mach Dunes, and that’s why you’ll love it!

Mid-April through Mid-October is peak travel season when the golf clubs are open and the weather is appropriate for golf (although perfect weather can’t be guaranteed!). July and August can be quite busy with tourists and September is a busy month at the golf clubs, so we recommend May and June if possible.
Our vehicles fit group’s of all sizes so there is no perfect group size. The larger the group, though, the earlier you will need to book your trip to ensure availability.
Absolutely. Your group’s driver will be available to the non-golfers while the golfers are at the course, meaning a fairly full sightseeing itinerary is feasible in conjunction with any golfing itinerary.
The easy answer is: the earlier the better. Let’s be a bit more specific though. Hotels and golf course tee sheets begin to fill up for the busy peak season 6-9 months in advance. To ensure optimal tee time availability, we recommend booking in the fall in the year prior to travel.
