Girvan is a popular links and parkland course, which has remained largely unchanged since James Braid took advantage of the same stunning scenery at its illustrious Turnberry neighbour.
At only 5064yds and Par 64, Girvan is not the longest, good club selection and clever course management is key to scoring well round this memorable course.
The course was designed by James Braid after whom the first hole was named and has had few alterations since its inception in 1902, providing a golfing test of considerable charm and aesthetic pleasure.
Girvan Golf Course truly provides a journey of interest with the exposed first eight holes being pure Scottish links, immediately adjacent to the beach, and the remaining ten holes being parkland providing a variable challenge.
This latter part has the added interest of the river, from which the town takes its name, winding through the fairways to its final destination in the Firth of Clyde.
