Stranraer Golf Club


3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Stranraer Golf Club Est. 1905

Where2Golf says: 

Stranraer Golf Club, also referred to as "Creachmore", is home to a pleasant and scenic open parkland course located on the shores of beautiful Loch Ryan in Dumfries & Galloway.

Amongst many testing holes, the immensely scenic par-4 5th is played from an elevated tee down to a fairway far below, the loch awaiting anything hit too far to the right. Like many of Scotland's lesser known gems, this wonderfully natural lochside course was laid out by five-time Open Champion James Braid.

Did you know?

As a prolific golf course designer, five-time Open Champion James Braid was involved with such notable Scottish courses as Gleneagles, Rosemount, Carnoustie and Dalmahoy. He also designed many lesser known gems, throughout Scotland, England and Wales. It was once said "nobody could be as wise as James Braid looks". He came out of retirement to lay out "Creachmore", his last commission, of which Stranraer members are justly proud.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
