Upcoming sports events

Monday, 3 April 2017

Sports fans have a lot to look forward to year-round in Scotland.

Here we'll pick out some of the very top events currently on the horizon, with tips on reaching them by train.

Scottish Open, Dundonald Links, 12 - 16 July

We're delighted to be helping golf fans get the Scottish Open, which is being held at Dundonald Links for the first time. To help everyone get there, we'll be adding extra carriages to services to/from Ayrshire over the weekend.

The closest station to the course is Irvine. Free shuttle buses will run between the course and the station frequently over all four days of the main competition.

Trains are likely to be busiest heading to the course in the mornings, so try to catch an earlier train if you can.

Please buy your tickets in advance - not on the day. Tickets can be purchased on the ScotRail app, at scotrail.co.uk or by calling 0344 811 0141‚Äč.

Please leave extra time for your journey home as trains will be busy. A queueing system will be in operation at the station, and you may not be able to board your first choice of train. Extra staff will be there to assist you, please follow their instructions.

If you are catching a connecting service, please leave plenty of time to change trains.
