"As with movies and actors, each of the Ayrshire courses has a distinct personality.  Turnberry is George Clooney and Brad Pitt.  It is great looking, big budget, and full of substance.  If Cary Grant, an old-fashioned leading man, is your hero, try Prestwick, which hosted the first twelve Open Championships.  Hitchcock fans would choose Royal Troon, for sheer terror with a classic feel.  Western Gailes is Woody Allen: quirkiness with intimacy.  Rodney Dangerfield personifies Glasgow Gailes, Barassie, Loch Green, and the Darley course, as they “don’t get no respect.”
