What the club says: The Irvine Golf Club, Bogside sports a traditional links course established over 100 years ago owing much of it's present day character to the design work of James Braid in 1926. The course provides a challenge to all with its subtle changes in direction and no two holes the same.

Irvine Golf Club hosts the Final Qualifying Rounds for the Open Championship when it is held at Turnberry or Royal Troon. The course demands accurate shot making, after all, it has produced three Scottish Amateur Champions in Hammy McInally, Jimmy Walker and Jack Cannon who honed their skills at Bogside.

The most emotional round...

This round of golf took me through all the emotions imaginable. After the 1st 2 holes we were feeling good, regular links golf. 4 holes later our group sat on the tee box, debating weather to walk in and go tot he bar and 1 of our group was debating giving up golf. The 3rd to the 7th are some of the most brutal holes in golf in the wind. Really tight, lots of rough and gorse, OBs and the odd 50 ft hill in the way (and 3 of those holes are less than 310 yard par 4's). After that it went back to a very pleasant and interesting links golf course which I enjoyed. We then spent about an hour in the bar debating if it was a brilliant golf course or not

Links with variety

Every hole is very distinct, with different shapes (straight on, bending left or right, uphill, downhill, greens on shelves, in a bowl), obstacles like mounds, some big bunkers and options for ways to get on the green through the air or along the ground. A fair number of holes play up or down short ridges, making a reasonably easy course to walk. But that means a fair number of blind shots so a course guide or GPS helps. Greens fast and true. Beautiful old clubhouse with very reasonable bar and food prices.
