Dundonald Links was awarded first-place honors in the ‘Best Clubhouse’ and ’Best Sustainability Project’ categories, highlighting their status as one of Scotland’s best and most well-rounded venues.
Over the past two years, the course has been transformed into a full resort, spearheaded by an extensive development of their new state of the art clubhouse. The spacious facility has received much acclaim since opening in 2021 for a Highlands-inspired aesthetic and the stunning Canny Crow Restaurant. A quintessentially Scottish whiskey room offers tasting sessions, while the resort’s state-of-the-art gym boasts a wide range of equipment. The new-look clubhouse is the perfect place to relax and unwind post round, with panoramic views over the 18th green and beyond.
Dundonald Links also tasted success in the ‘Best Sustainability Project’ category. The award was a recognition of the resort’s work around the 2022 Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open, which it staged in July, working with industry experts IMG and apparel brand Reflo to create the #TGWSO OnTheGreen strategy.
Throughout the build-up and during the event itself, they used educational messaging, advanced waste processing and a site-wide ban of plastics among its methods to promote environmental wellness across the tournament. Meanwhile, official clothing supplier Reflo played their part by providing uniforms made of recycled plastics and coffee beans, and committed to planting a tree for every birdie or better scored throughout the tournament – a number that eventually came to 1,583.
Ian Ferguson, General Manager at Dundonald Links, said: “We are extremely proud to win these awards, which are testament to both the success of our recent investments and the hard work of the whole team here.”
“These awards emphasize two key pillars of our strategy: world class facilities and meaningful, long-term actions toward sustainability. We look forward to what the future holds as we strive to keep improving.”
