James Braid Course Design

When it comes to playing golf in Scotland, one thing you are guaranteed to find is variety and at the Irvine Golf Club it comes in abundance.

The course owes much of its character to the legendary course designer, James Braid.

It is highly regarded by the R&A being used as a final qualifying course for the Open Championship, when it is hosted by near neighbours, Royal Troon or Trump Turnberry.

The Irvine Golf Club is a traditional links course, where greens run true and golfing challenges can be found at every hole. The Braid design uses the natural contours to best effect and no two holes are alike. No matter how many times you return to play this fabulous course, you will enjoy the experience as if for the first time, as you discover more of its interesting features and character.

It is part of the James Braid West Coast trail and represents a fine example of his course architecture, blended with the breath taking landscapes and views over the Firth of Clyde.
