Belleisle Golf Course

Golf Courses

Belleisle Park, Doonfoot Road, Ayr, Ayrshire, KA7 4DU

    In 1927 James Braid designed what many consider to be the finest, inland public links course in Britain, only ranking behind Carnoustie and St Andrews.

    Belleisle is a classic and a parkland golf course set in Belleisle Park, where beech tree lined and extra long fairways are interlaced by the Curtecan Burn.The course opens with two relatively short par fives, and finishes with a par five which is anything but. There are only two par fours under 400 yards and a cracker of a par three at the 17th.

    A true test for golfers, tour players often sharpen their pencils here before major competitions! Thats how good it is, and one of the few true municipals to host professional tournaments.
