Dundonald Links Golf Course

Dundonald Links is a beautiful championship golf course in Ayrshire, just 12.7 miles or a 20 minute drive from Mercure Ayr Hotel. The name reflects the area’s rich history. Dundonald means ‘Fort Donald’ and fortifications have been discovered nearby dated to between 500 and 200. It was even converted for military use during World War II and lay dormant until the beginning of the 21st century.

In 2008, Dundonald was chosen as the venue for the first stage of the European Tour Qualifying School and continued to host until 2011. In 2012, the course played host to Senior Opening Qualifying. The Boys Amateur Championship came to Dundonald in 2014, before the course welcomed some of the world’s best female golfers for the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open in 2015 and 2016. In 2017, Dundonald welcomed the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.
