Ayrshire's five Scariest Holes!

Image result for halloween images

It's a spooky time of year and we thought we would share some of Ayrshire's Scariest holes.
Tough tee shots, dangerous greens and coffin bunkers. What hole would frighten you the most?

In no particular order.....


1. Trump Turnberry's new par 3 9th hole, measuring 248 yards from the championship tees across rugged coastline. Would you make par?



2. Dundonald Links par 4 16th  hole, No.1 on the stroke index and with the railway on the right, two huge bunkers waiting to catch your tee shot and a tough sloping green, this is a true monster hole.




3. The Postage Stamp at Royal Troon, measuring only 123 yards long but with a bunker aptly named 'coffin' it says it all!



4. Irvine Bogside's tricky risk and reward par 4 4th hole. With the railway directly behind this small narrow green, do you take it on with your tee shot or lay up leaving a frightening pitch to the green! P.s watch out for all the gorse...



5. Prestwick's par 4 17th hole named the Alps. The oldest championship hole in golf!
A blind 2nd shot requires plenty of club to avoid one of the biggest bunkers you will ever see...


These holes have caused nightmares to golfing visitors from across the globe, as well as locals who face them week in week out. 
Are you brave enough to take on the challenge of Ayrshire's scariest holes??

Links Golf Cup Ayrshire 2016

The Links Golf Cup Ayrshire was a massive success in its second year in the region.
108 competitors from as far as USA, Holland and Germany competed on four of our great links courses including Western Gailes, Prestwick St Nicholas, Barassie Links and Dundonald Links.

The Gala dinner was held after final day at the Gailes hotel where the hard fought winners picked up their prizes. We think they were all winners after the poor weather conditions they played in. Well done folks and we will see you next year.
Check out this great video filmed by we film golf on the highs and lows of the week.
