In Their Words ...........
A popular links and parkland course, Girvan has remained largely unchanged since James Braid designed the course to take advantage of the same stunning views of Ailsa Craig as its illustrious neighbour, Turnberry.The course, lying on the northern outskirts of the town, is unusual in that it is divided into two distinct parts. The opening eight holes are pure links, immediately adjacent the coastline, and the second ten holes are parkland. This latter part has the added problem of the river, from which the town takes its name, winding through the land. Care should be taken on the ninth tee, as this hole is named after the gentleman who stepped back to admire a good drive only to take an unscheduled dip in the river.
Girvan is not the longest at just over 5,000 yards, so good club selection and clever course management are key.
