Top golf course at Troon

Set off today, in blazing sunshine, for a mainly off road cycle along the coast from Ayr to Troon.
We managed to find a little road that ran parallel to the Royal Troon course and saw how beautifully manicured the greens were. Also, fantastic views across the sea to the Isle of Arran.
All along the coast it was golf course after golf course, and we stopped to watch four ladies play at Prestwick. It was a bit of an eye opener as I assumed that anyone playing along this coastline must be skilled at the game.
We watched for quite a while as they individually looked for their missing balls. They all dressed the part, though I think they might be 'all the gear, no idears', as when one lady eventually played a shot, it was truly terrible.
I really liked their single white gloves and the sun umbrellas attached to their golf trollies, so I suppose if you are going to be rubbish, you might as well do it stylishly.
