3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1905

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.
