The Ailsa Course sits next to the Irish Sea and offers beautiful views on almost every hole. The 9th hole, in particular, has an island tee that is surrounded by sea water and a good hit is required to clear both the water and a large hill for any chance of reaching the green in two. I would only place... More

You would be hard pressed to find a more scenic golf course, one of the finest and worthy of its ranking in the top 20 in the world. The course layout and conditioning, lighthouse, Bruce's castle and views of Ailsa Craig with the iconic holes along the coast makes this a truly meorable experience. We secured a twilight tee off...

Played the Kintyre and Ailsa on alternate days. The former seemed in better condition and left untouched whilst the latter was already under winter maintenance. Green side bunkers GUR being rebuilt. Didn't detract from the beauty of the courses, and the fantastic coastal setting. Saturday was last open day for Clubhouse, now under refurbishment. Well worth a visit. 83 😀... More

I loved this layout. It is a great venue. An added bonus was Peter the caddie and his great stories. He was the perfect caddie for me and he also helped my son get around the course. It has beautiful views. The course condition was not that great but it didn't take a thing away from this course. I would... More

The golf course is absolutely fantastic although the weather was not good on this occasion. The clubhouse service was excellent with stunning views. The ladies stayed in the lodges which were luxurious and lacked nothing. We had dinner above the spa and although the service was excellent for fifty five pounds I felt the menu lacked imagination and was rather... More

Playing the Alisa course just felt like I was walking on something specially unique in the golf world. Had a late tee-time due to the heavy traffic in Scotland for the Ryder Cup and didn't actually finish the round but still enjoyed it for the views and challenge of a true links course. From the moment you walk into the... More

The Aisla Course was a stunner with beautiful sea-side holes throughout and a very challenging set of holes and greens. The check in guys cheekily advised us to put away our driver and man were they right. The holes are pretty tight and if you can hit an iron reliably in the 180-200 yard range you should be alright.

Ailsa Course is a gem. On a clear day the views of the rock and sea are spectacular. Wonderful Classic Links course among my favorites. Knowledgable caddies and good practice facilities and pro shop. Great Hotel with outstanding view.
