Located at the very heart of Ayrshire’s golf coast lies a modern links golf masterpiece. Designed by Kyle Phillips, Dundonald Links was home to the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open in 2015, 2016 and 2017, The Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in 2017 and the 2022 Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open, which is set to return in 2023. In addition, Final Qualifying for The Open will also be at Dundonald Links from 2023 to 2026.
Offering a variety of terrain, it presents all levels of golfers with a real challenge. The par 72 golf course was originally designed by former Ryder Cup captain Brian Huggett, and first opened in 1998. The course was purchased by Darwin Escapes in 2017 and the following year began a significant investment plan, starting with the golf course with leading course architect Tim Lobb. Following the opening of the new resort in 2022, The Springs is now considered to be one of the best golf resorts in the south of England.
Set in 120 acres of Yorkshire Wolds countryside, you’ll struggle to find a more peaceful setting for a day out on the course. The 6193-yard par 70 parkland course offers something for every golfer. The wide and forgiving fairways give you plenty of confidence off the tee, but it’s a course you will still need to think your way around due the very cleverly placed hazards.
