Golf Courses

Stranraer Golf Club, Creachmore, Leswalt, Stranraer, Wigtownshire, DG9 0LF

    Stranraer Golf Club is the final course designed by James Braid; the culmination of his many years of outstanding golf course design.

    This is a course that’s worth making time to play, one of the best courses in the region, it’s beautifully designed with a prevailing wind from the sea and some real testing holes.


    Stranraer presents a true challenge for the better golfer, with excellent facilities and an immaculate course.   The warm wash of the Gulf Stream provides this part of Scotland with a remarkably mild climate, making play possible on all but a handful of days.


    Situated on the shores of Loch Ryan, the 6308 yard parkland course is laid out on gently undulating ground with exceptional views over the loch to Ailsa Craig, the Isle of Arran and beyond.


    From an early morning coffee with a bacon roll to an evening meal, the welcoming clubhouse boasts excellent catering and panoramic views over the course and beyond. 


    Booking is advisable in the summer.  Golfing parties are accepted, maximum party size 60.


    Course Highlight

    The signature hole is the par 4 5th, hitting from an elevated tee down to a tight sloping fairway.  From the tee you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world, with Loch Ryan to your right, the hole borders the shoreline for an intimidating tee shot.  The green is slightly elevated and is guarded by a bunker on the right and a famous Braid Mound on the left.


    Perfect Partner

    There are a cluster of outstanding courses in this corner of Galloway, try Portpatrick, St Medan and Wigtownshire County for more exceptional golf.
