It truly is one of Scotland’s hidden gems, offering a traditional links challenge, which owes much of its present day character to the course design of the great James Braid. One of Scotland’s most celebrated course designers, James Braid created a legacy of distinctive courses, characterised by their great variety and interesting use of nature’s assets.
Set in a seaside location, the neighbouring Gulf Stream ensures year round links golf, whilst the romantic peaks of Arran present a stunning backdrop to the landscape.
It was over the links land of Scotland that the game of golf was born and still today the true links experience is unparalleled the world over.
The Irvine Golf Club established 1887, is a fine example and is regularly used by the R&A as a Final Open Qualifying Course. In 2003, the Club co-hosted the Amateur Championship with Royal Troon and in 2007, the British Seniors' Open with Turnberry.
In 2009, the Ladies Home Internationals were also successfully hosted at the Irvine Golf Club. In 2016 we hosted the Scottish Youths Championship and the Ladies British Open Final Qualifying was also held at the club in 2017.
Today provided a real tough challenge to all of our golfers of all abilities!
Course management is key around here, positioning off the tee is crucial so you can attack those flags which can often be in some very challenging places. Whatever the stakes, you are sure to enjoy this stunning layout and highly conditioned course.
Best shot was Liz Keohone!!! She smashed longest drive straight down the middle, arrow straight! and even bypassed the men playing alongside her, go on girl
