The plaque will commemmorate the former owner of Coodham Estate, James Ogilvie Fairlie, who was instrumental in the formation of Prestwick Golf Club in 1851.
Fairlie persuaded his preferred caddie and frequent golfing partner, the legendary Tom Morris, to come over from St Andrews with his wife and family and lay out the original 12 hole course at Prestwick, which was the first in a distinguished list of courses he designed.

Coodham house lies at the edge of Symington village in South Ayrshire, set within a 90 acre Estate.
The A-listed exterior of Coodham House has now been restored to its former glory, whilst the interior has been entirely re-constructed to form six luxury apartments and three unique designer houses.
Coodham House is a golfers dream, located a short drive away from the a host of famous West Of Scotland golf courses, including the Open Championship venues of Prestwick, Royal Troon and Turnberry.
