Plans to build a prestigious new multi-million pound links course on the west coast of Scotland close to Turnberry, Prestwick and Troon took a major step forward this week.
The Ayrshire Golf Company has completed negotiations with Irvine Bay Regeneration Company to construct a new 18-hole links course complete with adjoining hotel and a selection of fraction-freehold holiday homes next to the existing Dundonald golf course at Western Gailes.
Construction of the par 71 golf course and hotel facility with clubhouse, professionals shop, spa, restaurant and conference facilities is now expected to start next year (2010) and should see the creation of around 250 construction jobs once final planning permission has been obtained from North Ayrshire Council.
The £60million project, known as The Ayrshire, will be overseen by the same team who were responsible for what has been dubbed the world's most environmentally friendly golf course, Machrihanish Dunes.
