About the Club

Dundonald Links is currently owned by Loch Lomond Golf Club who seized the opportunity to snap a half finished course when Southern Gailes started running out of capital.

While it was initially bought for its members, especially for the winter months, Kyle Phillips was commissioned to make Dundonald Links what it is today.

This relatively young course no longer looks young, except for the club house which is temporary but still it contains all the facilities you would expect for a high quality golf course. And the course is now seen as one of the best golf courses in Scotland.
On paper, the course looks fair and not too difficult, but this is incredibly deceptive. The course has been built with the wind in mind and was designed to test the best golfers. So choose your tee modestly.

The 4th hole, par-3 215-yards looks simple from the tee but often plays into the wind. It’s a hole which causes more issues than most, especially during the Qualifying competitions held at Dundonald.

Throughout the course, the flow and variety of holes test every club in your bag. From the very short par-3 at 120-yards (do not go long and left - there is a unbelievable pot bunker at the back) to fantastic dog leg's and flowing par-5's meandering through the dunes.

Of particular note is the final finishing holes, the 17th and 18th. The 17th is the sharpest dog leg on the course and at 420 yards, it will test your driving and approach play into a fast and sloping green. The 560-yard, par-5 18th hole requires too very long shots to avoid the bunkers on the second followed by an approach shot to a protect green. With water running down the right hand side and across the front, and bunkers protecting the left, you will be pleased to walk of with a bogey on this hole.

Dundonald Links is designed to be a real test and it is a very good test of golf. The course is very well maintained and after your round, you just want to return and have another go.

Read Review

I had not expected too much from Dundonald after reading mixed reviews but I was very surprised when we visited.

The course is long, it is tough and has that signature feel of Kyle Philips who designed the course. The greens were sharp, the bunkers painful and the course offered a really good challenge from start to the end.

The club house needs an update as it appears they ran out of money and erected a temporary building. Having said that, the team is good and you will feel welcome.

Playing tips:

It is better to play shorter and stay on the fairway, than try to hit it long and end in the rough.
