If golf was a religion, which for many it may as well be, then travelling to play in this region is a worthy pilgrimage. These courses come with a huge side-helping of Highland hospitality making the experience very hard to beat.

"A seriously good publication."

The stretch of land between Turnberry and West Kilbride on Ayrshire’s Clyde coast is of significant historical importance within the world of golf. Whilst tee-hunters gravitate to the dramatic and historic golfing links of the east coast of Scotland, Prestwick is the Birthplace of the Open Championship and has produced many famous golfers and course designers whose influence is felt today around the globe.

When Tron Carter of the American multi-media golf group ‘No Laying Up’ played Cullen for the first time with longtime Cullen Member/ Club Champion / Fundraiser /Ambassador George Clark, he asked, “Where is the green?” Clark silently pointed north, seemingly straight into the sky. Carter responded to the gesture with a laugh, “There is no way.” Clark, with a reserved smile, replied, “Yeah, up there.”
