Golf Course Road, Girvan, Ayrshire, KA26 9HW

    Girvan Golf Course Medal Tees Men 5064 yards SSS 64, Ladies 4738 yards SSS68 Neighbour to Turnberry, this course was designed by James Braid and has had few alterations since its inception in 1902.

    Although not of Championship standard, Girvan provides a golfing test of considerable charm and aesthetic pleasure.The exposed first eight holes are pure Scottish links, immediately adjacent to the beach, and the second ten holes are parkland providing a variable challenge. This latter part has the added interest of the river, winding through the fairways to its final destination in the Firth of Clyde. Strong features of this course are the fairly long par threes, all usually exacerbated by the prevailing SW wind. There are four par threes on the front nine and four on the back, if you don't score well on these your score is wrecked. If you score well on Girvan you have played very well indeed!
