Golf Vacations - - Chip Shots -

Ayr­shire, Scot­land – The Links Golf Cup in Ayr­shire, known as ‘The Birth­place of The Open Cham­pi­onship’, has proved to be a must-play ex­pe­ri­ence for links lovers since its in­cep­tion in 2015 with this year prov­ing to be no exception with just a fi­nal few spots avail­able in the 2018 field.

The event, which this year takes place from Septem­ber 3 to 7, reg­u­larly at­tracts am­a­teur golfers trav­el­ling from all over the world to this mecca of golf, drawn by the lure of ex­hil­a­rat­ing links golf on this wild and windy coast­line.

Lit­tle won­der given the 72-hole in­di­vid­ual Sta­ble­ford tour­na­ment of­fers golf over four of the finest cham­pi­onship links cour­ses in Scot­land, namely West­ern Gailes, Gailes Links, Kil­marnock Barassie and Dun­don­ald Links whilst the op­tion of play­ing the nearby Open Cham­pi­onship venues of Troon, Turn­berry and Prest­wick on the event rest day make this event an ir­re­sistible op­por­tu­nity to play five days of pure Scot­tish links.

Tes­ta­ment to the qual­ity of the com­pe­ti­tion cour­ses, all four have staged some of the most pres­ti­gious events in golf at some point. Dun­don­ald Links, for ex­am­ple, hosted the Aberdeen As­set Man­age­ment Scot­tish Open as re­cently as 2017 when it was won by Spain’s Rafa Cabr­era Bello.

In ad­di­tion to pro­vid­ing the op­por­tu­nity of play­ing such revered cour­ses, The Links Golf Cup Ayr­shire gives ama­teurs the chance to test their met­tle against like-minded, in­ter­na­tional golfers, mak­ing it both a chal­leng­ing and in­ter­est­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

At just over £300 per per­son for four rounds of golf, at­ten­dance at the pre­sen­ta­tion din­ner and a goodie bag, The Links Golf Cup Ayr­shire also of­fers un­prece­dented value when com­pared to the in­di­vid­ual green fees rates alone at this time of the year.

Golf, launched The Links Golf Cup Ayr­shire fol­low­ing the suc­cess of The Links Golf Cup East Loth­ian on Scot­land’s east coast that it has now been run­ning for seven years.

“We have been over­whelmed at how pop­u­lar The Links Golf Cup Ayr­shire has proved to be in just a few years. This is not only down to the event be­ing played over some of the best links in Scot­land, but un­doubt­edly be­cause the com­peti­tors also en­joy the so­cial side of meet­ing and forg­ing new friend­ships with like-minded golfers from across the UK and be­yond,” com­ments Andy Bowen of Hy­brid Golf.

“It’s this, and the great value the event of­fers, that keeps bring­ing peo­ple back year af­ter year.”

Tu­dor Park Golf Club mem­ber, Mark Hig­gins, who has played in both Links Golf Cups, rel­ishes play­ing in some of the coun­try’s top golf cour­ses. “Hav­ing played a wide va­ri­ety of Open com­pe­ti­tions, I can say that both the Links Golf Cup Ayr­shire and East Loth­ian are bril­liantly en­joy­able as well as of­fer­ing a great op­por­tu­nity to play world class cour­ses. I can’t wait for the next one!”

The fi­nal few spots in this 72-hole Sta­ble­ford Links Cup Ayr­shire which is open to am­a­teur golfers over the age of 18 and with a hand­i­cap of 24 or less, will be al­lo­cated on a first-come, first-served ba­sis.
