The stretch of Ayrshire coast from West Kilbride in the north of the county down to Girvan in the south must be one of the most bountiful in links golfing terms, anywhere in the world. On a stretch of coastal land not more than 45 miles in length you will find more than a dozen of the finest and most varied links golf courses you could wish for.
You can drive from top to bottom in under an hour but to do those would do an injustice to the quality of golf you would be bypassing. Take your time and savour a links golfing journey fit for any connoisseur.
Three Open Championship courses, wonderfully welcoming old links layouts with pot bunkers, fast undulating greens and burns winding through them, new championship courses and great quality public courses make up an almost continuous stretch of golfing coastline perhaps unique anywhere in the world.
