South Ayrshire rolls out the welcome mat for Ayr Golf Week 2017
Hundreds of golfers from across the UK are preparing to take part in Ayr Golf Week 2017. Now in its 66th year, the competition provides a serious challenge for amateur golfers, with a broad range of events on offer for people of different abilities.
Ayr Golf Week is played between Belleisle, Seafield, and Dalmilling Golf Courses from Sunday 4 - Saturday 10 June. Competitors are given the opportunity to play on parkland courses, while competing for a number of historic trophies and generous prize funds. There are nine different competitions across the week, including the showcase Tam o' Shanter and Handyside Tournament with £5,000 prize money for the week-long event, alongside long-standing favourites including the Stableford Competition, the Open Mixed Foursomes, Ladies Tri-am, and the Ladies Open Greensomes. Jill Cronin, South Ayrshire Council’s Head of Enterprise, Development and Leisure said this year’s event was shaping up to be one of the best, “We’ve had a great response to this year’s competition with more than 600 entries across all the different competitions. “With the fantastic new Belleisle Clubhouse acting as the base for Ayr Golf Week competitors and spectators alike can be sure of a first rate experience when they travel to be part of this year’s event. “The one thing we can’t guarantee is the weather but given the summer sun of recent weeks we’re hoping for perfect conditions when our golfers tee-off and I would like to wish everyone taking part the very best of luck.” Full details on Ayr Golf Week 2017 can be found here.
