6 reviews of Girvan Golf Course
Returned once again from our annual outing on 3/9/11 to this unique course, Its as hard as you want it to be and to reinforce other revue, club selection is vital.We have some very good low handicap golfers in our group and some, like myself, enjoy the cameraderie that comes from an enjoyable day out. Course in tremendous condition considering weather we've had. The usual warm welcome from all connected at the club, starter, members,catering staff et al Looking forward to our return next year from all at The Elms Bar Saltcoats.
On Saturday 25th June 2011, my mate Billy and I played Girvan. Even after weeks of heavy rain the course was in excellent condition, especially the greens. Although not a long course, it makes club selection important on every hole if you want to score well. It has the benefit of giving you a game of links and a game of parkland all in the one round of golf. Friendly staff and a neat wee clubhouse. Not the hardest golf course in Ayrshire, but truly one which leave you wanting to return. That I scored my best ever score made it all the better. Thanks Girvan.
A really good public course in very good nick. Only criticism I would have is that the 17th is basically mental. 230 yard par 3 where you have to hit the ball up a bit of a cliff. (I bottled it and layed up with a 6 iron, chipped on and happily 2 putted for a safe 4).
Have played this course now four times & it gets better all of the time infact enjoy it that much that i am playing it on Saturday again at a other outing... The first eight holes is pure links golf but dont be fooled by all of these short holes most are into the wind of the sea but its a great test of your golf... The back ten holes are pure parkland but again is a test of your golf the 12th is a big hit across the river Girvan then up a steep hill to the green... But my fav hole is the 18th over the trees & onto the green you hope or mabey not a hard par three to finnish... The clubhouse is small but with a great welcome, the food is very good olso a great bowl of soup at lunchtime,& a great main meal at night.. Thanks guys & girls see you all on Saturday... yours faithfully Derek Hyslop
Plyed this course in July 2005 and could not fault it. Very quiet and the course was in fantastic condition. The first hole is deceptively simple but really, the course is just easing you in. The par three 5th should provide an easy birdie opportunity but it is straight into the wind. The back nine are perhaps not as exciting as the front but the course provides a really enjoyable round.
This course is short, 5064 yards from the whites - par 64, but do not be fooled. The first 8 holes are true links, right next to the sea, and the last 10 are more inland. The course like many links is protected by the sea breezes/gales. There are many short par 4's but there are also 4 par 3's of over 200 yards. The 17th is a par 3 - 221 yards - over the face of a hill with an out of bounds on the right hand side at greenside - beware all slicers. If you can get a par at the hole you have done extremely well. A nice course to play if you have the chance and worth the £10 green fee.
