Golf in Ayrshire
Ayrshire is synonymous with golf and the Fairfield House Hotel has been looking after the needs of visiting golfers since it first opened its doors.
With three Open Championship courses within a twenty minute drive of the hotel car park and another couple of dozen of quality links and parkland courses to choose from within that radius, Ayr is a perfect base for a golfing vacation to Ayrshire.
Open Championship Links
Turnberry and Royal Troon still play host to the Open Championship - with the event returning to Troon again in 2016 - and Prestwick hosted the very first championship way back in 1860. Tee times can be reserved at all three of these championship links and they will each contribute to provide a most memorable golf vacation on Scotland's West Coast.
Links Golf in Ayrshire
As well as the three "major" courses Ayrshire is additionally blessed with a superb selection of welcoming links courses running from West Kilbride in the north down to the Kintyre at Turnberry in the south. Each has it's own history and character and you wouldn't be disappointed with a round on any of them.
We have reproduced an article from Scotland's West Coast Golf Links website highlighting some of the reasons for playing this stretch of coast and it is worth a read. Click on the link for more information.
