3rd time and will be back more

A friend who has just gotten in to golf asked me about good courses close to Glasgow and Bogside came to mind straight away.

Great welcome in the pro shop and clubhouse and the course was in fantastic condition. Given a lot of more expensive courses are having issues with greens and tee boxes Irvine GC was flawless. Quick greens and firm fairways. I can’t recommend it high enough. One of our group is going back next week with other friends.

Quirky & Stuck in the 1900s

Greens in great condition for early May!
Too many blind shots.
Back 9 better than front 9
Clubhouse was like stepping back in time, very old fashioned & no atmosphere, albeit the staff were welcoming.

West coast challenge

Play this course you will enjoy.
Some blind shots but most are open past the pole marker.
You can hit your driver if accurate and get the green with next shot if not accurate you won’t.

Some different style holes very enjoyable to play.
3.5 hours 4 ball and 5 lost balls .

GOOD DAY OUT THANKS GOLF NOW.

Fantastic links fun

I love playing James Braid courses, and this one is right up there with the best I've played, lots of fun approach shots with blind tee shots and elevations changes. Every hole has character, length off the tee not essential but controlling aproaches key. There's been a dry spell recently so the course was nicely baked out and brown, greens in great condition not a single dried out spot I could see with a sneaky bit of pace too. A classic links test .
