What the club says: Set in 600 acres of one of Scotland’s most glorious country estates, Rowallan boasts two of the finest castles in the land. Generations have been enchanted by the 13th century castle, birthplace of Elizabeth Muir the mother of Robert II, the first Stewart king of Scotland, with its distinctive sweeping staircase and manicured lawns.
Stretching to 7000 yards from the Championship tees Rowallan is a modern classic, to compliment Ayrshire’s existing golfing gems.

Most Helpful Review

i have recently purchased a membership for this club after playing the course twice in different conditions.

During a wet round the greens were receptive and still managed to play fast considering the water. The previous reviews make mention of poor drainage however this was not my experience as i have been informed that this aspect has been looked at by the green staff and money spent to improve it which they have.

Word of warning AVOID THE BUNKERS! They have strategically placed the fairway bunkers which are playable however the greenside bunkers are fraught with danger with steep faces, id be lying if i didnt take 2 strokes to get out of 2 of them. They were a good challenge.

The pylon mentioned on one of the holes would appear to have been removed as i did not come across one.

When paying in excellent weather the ball would run on the fairways adding length to my drives which i dont have this made for an enjoyable experience. The view from the course were magnificent with views all the way to Arran and the drive into the course through the castle grounds is impressive.

This course is still young and developing and when it does achieve its potential i could foresee a Euro tour event in the future, this is shown by a pro tour event taking place next month.

The most welcoming feature of this course is the relaxed casual enviroment which is extended to the clubhouse and restaurant where dress codes are not a strict as other clubs i have played. This is a personal view as i find the snobbery and "traditions" of other clubs outdated.

One negative aspect of my visits were slow play although i do appreciate this does not happen all the time.

I look forward to making bset use of my new membership. - Jun 2 2012

Was expecting the course to be a lot drier considering the recent period of good weather. Bunkers could be maintained better. Overall a true test and just glad that the weather conditions were great on the day.
