Where2Golf says: 

Irvine Golf Club (Bogside): Not one of the most spectacular or well known golf courses on Scotland's Ayrshire coast, but this open, flattish links is an absorbing and testing layout from start to finish. Views from the course contain a bit of everything - a railway, residential housing, some industry, hills to the north, but no sea. From within the course however, you will become immersed in the excellence of James Braid's layout, and the pleasure of putting on immaculate greens. Your biggest challenge in getting to those greens involves staying out of the plentiful heather and gorse - easier said than done. Definitely worth putting an extra ball or two in your bag, before setting out to play this long-established, well regarded and pleasurable links layout.
