What the club says: Routenburn Golf Course, opened 1913, is a fantastic example of a James Braid designed golf course. Although not the longest course, at 5262 yards, this hilly, moorland course offers a challenge for all levels of golfers as well as some breathtaking views over to Arran, the Cumbraes and beyond.??Routenburn is the course where Sam Torrance developed his skills under the watchful eye of his father Bob Torrance, before going on to become a leading player on the European Tour, a regular member of Europe’s Ryder Cup Team, the 2002 Ryder Cup Captain & than a leading contender on the European Seniors Tour. ??

Ive played 103 courses last year and this was my 30th this year and have to say my favourite course that Ive played. The scenery over the firth of clyde to the islands just breathtaking , the golf course great fun to play with terrific variations of holes -really felt like a privelege to play it. Joined a member at the second (Archie) who was tremendous company especially helping me with the odd blind shot. Although just the portakabin for booking, the welcome was extremely friendly - cant say more than great course, great scenery and great fun to play.

I was a golf professional for 23 years and now have returned to an amateur. I play Routenburn regularly and all I can say is it is a cracking test of golf, with all various golf shots required. I love the course and would urge people to play this course.

The course is excellent, provides a good challenge and the views across the Clyde to the islands are wonderful. The clubhouse facilities however are non existent apart from the toilets. As long as you are aware of this Routenburn should be on every golfers must play list.

This is the better of the two courses in Largs. A municipal course with a straight out and back layout. The course is in excellent condition with a real variety of holes, and terrific views over the Firth of Clyde.

It makes for excellent value for money, however the Clubhouse leaves a great deal to be desired. It is very seldom open, and the toilets and changing rooms could only be described as shameful, and should be avoided.

Notwithstanding the condition of the toilets, it's well worth playing a round at Routenburn. It was good enough for Sam Torrance who learned his trade here.

the course is wonderful with fantastic views out over the Clyde and islands, on a good day you can see as far as the Cobbler in the Arrochar Alps. Regretably the club house leaves much to be desired. Overall the playing experience is excellent despite the course being a bit hilly..

Course in excellent condition views breath taking. A challenging course with many twists and turns and not a few blind tees. Unfortunately the club house is in a state of disrepair and only provides toilet facilities. Despite this a great course and highly recommended.
