West Coast Scotland Golf

One of Scotland’s most historic and beloved golfing regions, a golf vacation to Scotland’s west coast will take you to the very heart of Scotland’s golfing hertitage.

Walk in the footsteps of Old Tom Morris at legendary Prestwick, where the first Open Championship was held, enjoy your own Duel in the Sun at Trump Turnberry’s magnificent Ailsa Links and try your luck at the world-famous ‘Postage Stamp’ par 3 at Royal Troon.

Within easy reach of Glasgow, there’s no shortage of superb links to savour. And for the truly adventurous, just across the Firth of Clyde, on the Kintyre Peninsula, lies the famous links of Machrihanish and David McLay Kidd’s Machrihanish Dunes.

    Average weather graph for West Coast Scotland

    Although the west of Scotland benefits from a Gulf Stream warming the Atlantic breezes allowing for some warmer weather at times, the west coast of Scotland can be slightly wetter than that of the east. With this milder yet wetter weather, your best chances of fine weather are in May, June and September; although July and August can be warm, they can also be wetter. As the old Scottish saying goes, "there's no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes!”
