A joint venture between property investment and development company Credential Holdings Limited and KPT Limited has resulted in "The Ayrshire" project, an 18-hole links course with adjoining hotel and holiday homes on the waterfront of Irvine Bay.

The new £60million development includes a golf course designed by golf architect David McLay Kidd. 

“We are delighted that Irvine Bay Regeneration Company, having brought this exciting project to the market in March 2007, has reached the position where Credential Holdings and KPT have been identified as the preferred developers and their work on the project is imminent,” said Brian MacDonald, Regeneration Director.

“We have the opportunity to create a golfing asset which will bring visiting golfers to the area and, importantly, provide the facilities to keep them in this area longer,” he added.

Construction of the par 70 golf course and 220,000 square foot hotel facility, with clubhouse, professional’s shop, spa, restaurant and conference facilities is estimated to take around 20 months and involve at least 250 construction jobs. Construction of the course will be overseen by Euan Grant, the former head green keeper of the old course at St Andrews.

Plans are also being considered for a terminal for Loch Lomond Seaplanes close to the resort.
