Dundonald Links is situated in between the towns of Irvine and Troon in Ayrshire.
It is one of the newest courses in the region, opening in February 2003 and designed by the acclaimed course designer Kyle Phillips whose other noted course include Kingsbarns in St Andrews and The Grove in Hertfordshire, to name but a few.
Kyle Phillips intimated from the outset that it was intention to create a championship Ayrshire links that played and felt like it was an old rediscovered course. Phillips moved some earth around while constructing Dundonald Links but only where it was necessary to enhance the existing contours. The result is a thoroughly natural test of golf, one that is comparable to nearby Royal Troon and Turnberry, but with a character all of its own.
The 7,100 yard par 72 course has hosted many top championships, with the likes of Senior British Open Qualifying, numerous Scottish Amateur events and of course the Ladies Scottish Open on the Ladies European Tour. Media are already speculating the Scottish Open on the men's European Tour will be coming to Dundonald in 2017 as the course would be the prefect test of golf the week prior to The Open.
Dundonald Links also boasts some significant environmental awards. In 2012 the club achieved its objective of zero waste to landfill from the William Tracey Group, the first in the UK to achieve this.
