Modern Day Classic Golf Links
Dundonald was opened in 2003 and has gained a fine reputation as a modern classic links. It is situated just north of Troon, only a few minutes drive from the famous Royal Troon course, where the Open was last played in 2004 and is expected to return in 2016.
Dundonald is very seldom closed, owing to its proximity to the sea and the warming effect of the gulfstream. So why not try some winter/spring golf here. Special offers are available with greatly reduced visitors fees up till the end of April.
