In Their Words ...........
Ballochmyle has very strong connection in the life of Scotland’s National Bard and the inspirational views and natural beauty inspired him to write two of his most beautiful songs. The first, ‘Farewell to the Braes o’ Ballochmyle’ and secondly, ‘The Bonny Lass o’ Ballochmyle’.
The original owner of Ballochmyle Estate was Sir John Whitefoord, third Baronet of Blairquhan. This man was a close personal friend of Robert Burns but unfortunately had to sell the estate to Claud Alexander in 1783 when he lost his fortune during the collapse of the Bank of Douglas Heron & Co in Ayr.
Ballochmyle is an inland Golf Course situated some 10-12 miles from the Ayrshire coast which boasts some of the most famous golfing links in the world, Royal Troon, Old Prestwick and Turnberry. These courses are famous all over the world because of their connection with the Open Championship which has been played over all three on many occasions.
Whilst Ballochmyle will never attain the world wide appeal of these courses, it offers members and visitors a pleasant round of golf set in beautiful surroundings in the very heart of Burns country.
The clubhouse at Ballochmyle Golf Club offers some of the best amenities available to golfers and guests in the West of Scotland. The extensive lounge/bar, restaurant, function room all provide panoramic views of the course, combined with spacious locker and changing rooms, these facilities provide the ideal venue for a great day of golf.
