Scottish Golf Membership Card holders can take advantage of the following fantastic offer and play the host of the 2017 Aberdeen Standard Investments Men’s and Ladies’ Scottish Opens:
Dundonald Links hosted the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open’s in 2017 (Men & Ladies) producing two fantastic winners in Spain’s Rafael Cabrera-Bello and South Korea’s Mi Hyang Lee.
Since being acquired by Loch Lomond Golf Club in February 2003, Dundonald Links has played host to numerous professional and amateur tournaments, including the European Tour Qualifying School First Stage, a qualifier for the Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex and, most recently, the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open, which returned to Dundonald Links this year.
Kyle Phillips intimated from the outset that it was his intention“to create a championship Ayrshire links that felt and played as though it was an old, rediscovered course.” A traditionalist and also the designer of Kingsbarns near St Andrews and The Grove in Hertfordshire, 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 fairways are generous and, regardless of your handicap, the course is a welcome challenge for players of all ability. Philips used his vivid imagination and the light, sandy soil to build a traditional 7,100-yard masterpiece that lingers in the memory long after a visit is over.
