Cumnock Knowes and Carminnow Cottage benefit from being close to some beautiful 9 and 18 hole golf courses. As keen golfers ourselves, being able to play some of these courses whilst on a vacation adds an extra element to your time at Cumnock Knowes.

Nearby, we have the Open Links of Ayrshire

Three of Scotland's most prestigious courses have combined forces to create the Open Links of Ayrshire, the only golf package that includes guaranteed times on all of Ayrshire’s Open Championship courses:

Royal Troon (Old): Nine-time host of golf's oldest major championship and considered one of the great links courses in Scotland.

Prestwick Golf Club: Introduced the world to the Open Championship by hosting the inaugural tournament in 1860.

Turnberry (Ailsa): The Ailsa course has been proud host of the Open Championship four times and was the setting of the famous 'Duel in the Sun' in 1977.

These courses are open to visitors and are within an hours drive from Cumnock Knowes. Prices start from £25 per round on Trump 9 hole course and increase depending on course selection and season.

Closer to home, we have New Galloway and Castle Douglas courses. Both are lovely 9 hole courses offering quality golfing experiences combined with beautiful scenery. 

During your stay at Cumnock Knowes, we can arrange 9 hole, 18 hole or all day unlimited play at our local courses.
