Irvine Bogside

Played the course yesterday . It was fast and fiery on a lovely day with a light breeze.
The greens were like a green carpet , they were very nice to putt on . We arrived early to watch the Wales game on tv before we played and had a spot of lunch in the bar . The food was good and reasonably priced and the staff and members were very friendly . It’s a great course but a tough test , but very enjoyable on a nice day . I will definitely play here again it was very enjoyable .

Great course

Superbly presented course with fantastic greens. Playing on Friday afternoon made for a slow round. A few too many blind holes for my first time playing here. I'm sure if it was my home course I'd learn to love is quirkiness. Will definitely return.

Very Impressed

It said it was links and although it was not right next to the sea it WAS. The welcome in the starters presumably by the Pro was one of the best I have come across - very welcoming as were the members we spoke to. Our first round here, albeit a 2 ball was well under 3.5 hours despite me being in 9-10 bunkers - a record for me. Great value for money.

Quirky and Enjoyable

A fantastic welcome by the pro on arrival, headed out with 3 other visitors and instantly took a shine to this course. Placement is key off the tee and greens are interesting and true throughout the course. I would highly recommend this course to others and look forward to playing it again now I have a better understanding of the blind holes. A really good experience.

Great Layout

Great variation of holes which were both challenging and thought provoking. Requires good club selection to gain best approach shots which only adds to the enjoyment of the course. If you’ve not played here before then it’s an absolute must. Food and staff were also first class.

Hidden gem

Pro was very helpful gave us lots of information without prompting, putting green was was huge and very well maintained with nets close by.
Only one tee marker on tees seemed a bit odd.
Course condition was very good and it has my recommendation, my son and I had a great day in very windy conditions.

Beautiful links course, challenging bunkers, a few un sighted greens.

This course was challenging but fair.

In excellent condition with short fairways and medium speed greens

The 4th, 5th and 6th holes are the trickiest on the course with elevation changes and the railway and river out of bounds

Leave the driver in car! All but 2 holes are par 4s . If you have a driving iron you will find it useful.
