Girvan is a popular links/parkland course which has remained largely unchanged since James Braid took advantage of the same stunning views of Ailsa Craig as at its illustrious Turnberry neighbour.

The course, lying on the northern outskirts of the town, is unusual in that it is divided into two distinct parts. The opening 8 holes are pure links, adjacent to the coastline, and the second 10 holes are parkland. This latter part has the added problem of the river, from which the town takes it name winding through the land. Care should be taken on the 9th tee, as this hole is named after the gentleman who stepped back to admire a good driver only to take an unscheduled dip in the river.

At only 5064 yards and a Par 64, Girvan is not the longest, good club selection and clever course management are key to scoring well around this memorable course.
