Our Links Golf Cups are 72 hole Stableford tournaments played in two fantastic areas for golf – East Lothian and Ayrshire. Both tournaments, consisting of four rounds played over four inspiring links courses, are open to all amateur golfers over the age of 18 and with a handicap of 24 or less. Over the years, our courses have staged some of the most prestigious events in golf and are ranked highly on the list of the best courses in Scotland – the undisputed home of golf.

The Links Golf Cup provides a unique opportunity not just to tick these courses off your “must play” list, but also to test your game against like minded golfers in a professionally run event.

There are also a number of Pairs events – both for mixed couples and pairs of any combination. These feature some outstanding courses, including Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart, Turnberry and Hillside – all highly ranked in Golf Monthly’s Top 100 in the UK and Ireland.

Our events represent excellent value for money when compared with standard golf club green fees, so they can be a cost effective way of organising your next golf trip – either as an individual player or on behalf of a group. You don’t need to do anything other than turn up on the 1st tee. Entries are accepted for all events on a first come, first served basis, so if you are a club golfer over the age of 18, book your place now… you are sure to have a fantastic time.
