Blairquhan is the perfect place to stay if you are planning a golf trip

Scotland is famous throughout the world as the home of golf, and the game is etched into the hearts of many a Scot. The county of Ayrshire, where Blairquhan Castle is situated, is equally enamoured with the sport. The Open Championship was born here way back in 1860 and the first ever recorded hole-in-one was made on the same course, Prestwick, by ‘Young’ Tom Morris in 1868.

As well as the historic Prestwick Golf Club, Ayrshire also boasts an abundance of other courses for you to enjoy; two of which you may have heard of before, namely the more recent Open venues - Turnberry and Royal Troon. Both of these famous courses are a mere 35 minute drive away from the castle gates, making Blairquhan the perfect place to stay if you are planning a golf trip to this stunning part of the world.

By opting to hire the castle for your own exclusive use you’ll be able to enjoy all that the property and its grounds has to offer, without the worry of any unwelcomed interruptions. It will just be you and your select group of friends or colleagues, with fine food, luxurious surroundings…..and the inevitable tales from the course!

Blairquhan has recently joined Ayrshire Golf Scotland as a platinum member. The collaboration aims to further develop golf tourism in Ayrshire & Arran. For the great golf courses in Ayrshire & Arran please visit
