DUNDONALD LINKS GOLF CLUB
Originally known as Southern Gailes, the Kyle Philip’s-designed golf course was purchased by Loch Lomond Golf Club in early 2003 to provide its global Membership with a traditional links challenge. The name was changed to Dundonald Links to reflect the area’s rich history. Dundonald means ‘Fort Donald’ and fortifications have been discovered nearby dated to between 500 and 200 BC. More recently, in the early 1900s, there was a golf course on the site of the current links, however, it was converted for military use during World War II and lay dormant until the beginning of the 21st century. The arrival of The Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in 2017 heralds a new chapter in Dundonald’s history. In recent years the Tour has taken this prestigious Championship to some iconic links courses across Scotland. Dundonald Links is the latest to host what is always a very strong field focussed on winning one of the European Tour’s flagship events.
