Belleisle Golf Club: Run by South Ayrshire Council and situated in the beautiful Belleisle Estate, this is a very pleasant municipal parkland alternative to all the seaside links courses hereabouts. The gently undulating terrain is very open in places with deep rough rather than too many trees providing your main "hazard" - although the "deep" is conveniently set back, far enough to encourage big-hitters to freely use their driver for most tee-shots.

There are many attractive holes, the well-bunkered uphill 3rd and 7th holes, both shortish par-3's, are two fine examples. Generally the fairway bunkering is light, though more threatening around the greens. The overall layout benefits from Braid's skilful and easy-going touch, apart from at the par-4 16th, which takes a bit of working out the first time you play it. There are a few distant glimpses of the sea, but most of the time it is pleasant open parkland, the sumptuous Belleisle House (a good-size chateau if truth be told) and the gentle undulations of this pleasant golf course that will command your focus.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
