The natural environment is key to Dundonald Links and as a result the Club has a very close relationship with the Scottish Wildlife Trust. Visit their link below to explore all the good work that is involved to support all types of wildlife in its 15 reserves in Ayrshire and throughout the wider countryside.

You will also be able to visit the Scottish Wildlife Trust in the Kids Zone in the Championship Village during the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open which will include an opportunity to visit a Giant Bee Hotel or participate in some “Seed Bombing”.

Dundonald Links is very rich in wildlife.  Visit the Scottish Wildlife Trust stand at the Scottish Open to find out what to look out for.  The flower-rich roughs are great hoverflies.
The Scottish Wildlife Trust has identified the best wildlife areas on Dundonald Links so that they can be protected during the Scottish Open. For example, the habitat of the rare Small Blue butterfly will be cordoned off.
Bring the kids to the Scottish Wildlife Trust stand at the Scottish Open for fun activities including a nature treasure hunt they can take part in as you follow the players around the course. They can achieve a Hedgehog Award.
Help the Scottish Wildlife Trust build a bee hotel at Dundonald Links during the Scottish Open. It’s going to be big – how big is up to you.
Dundonald Links is part of the Irvine to Girvan Nectar Network which aims to create an interconnected network of flower-rich habitats along the Ayrshire coast. This helps pollinating insects spread and thrive. Visit the Scottish Wildlife Trust stand and the Scottish Open to learn more about it.
The Scottish Wildlife Trust helps Dundonald Links monitor their wildlife. If you are at the Scottish Open this year, take photos of anything you see and bring it along to our stand to be identified.
