What the club says: Formerly known as Southern Gailes, this superb new course sits in prime links land adjacent to Western Gailes with Glasgow Gailes to the north and Kilmarnock Brassie to the south. It has been hailed as an equal to Kingsbarns and unsurprisingly, was designed by Kyle Phillips. A classic links, it has been recognised as one of the best new courses in the world (Robb Report 2004). Phillips' aim was to create a championship course that played and felt like an old rediscovered course and most observers believe he's accomplished this.

Fabulous Course

When you arrive the clubhouse is less than inspiring from the outside as it resembles a very large mobile home. Inside the facilities are very good. Food was excellent. Pro and reception staff super friendly and helpful. Moving to the practice ground you see the benefits of being chosen to host The Scottish Open as the practice range, short game practice area and putting practice area were added then and are superb. Then you play the course and the treat that you have ahead will truly make your day. Superbly maintained every hole is a joy to play. A note of caution from the starter was "Avoid the bunkers at all costs and if you do happen in one chose your route out carefully as forward is not always the best way." I concur! Possibly my favourite course of those that I have played, certainly up there. Highly recommended.

Great links course

The course is varied and challenging. It has views over the Firth of Clyde; follows the Ayr-Glasgow railway at some points, and has small ditches, large bunkers and steep mounding to keep life interesting. The fairways are firm and the greens are fast. You have to hit approaches to the right parts of the greens as there are many elevation changes. There are white, blue and black tees offering different distance challenges for every level of player. The staff are friendly and helpful, and a half-way service is available.

Plays like an old links course. We had gales and rain when we played. Clubhouse is very basic but has reasonable facilities. Loved playing this as it had recently hosted the Scottish Open...

The course was in great condition the greens were immaculate. They wind proved to be the toughest part of the round as you would expect from a great links course. If you have not played I would suggest that you do you will not be disappointed.
