In their Words…….
Built in 1891 as a nine hole course, four new holes were added in 1909 for a unique 13 hole course, one of the few in the world. James Braid re-designed the 13 hole course during a visit to the area in 1911. The course remained pretty much unaltered until a further 5 new holes were added in 1999 to finally make Skelmorlie an eighteen hole course.
This James Braid course is a short by modern standards, but very challenging 18 hole moorland layout and will provides all standards of golfers a very enjoyable experience. There are seven par 3’s to be found on the course and playing these well is often the key to a good score. The rest of the holes provide a mix of playing challenges, including accuracy from the tee and sensible course management choices.
When the greens are in their prime they are some of the best in the area to play on. Skelmorlie is well known for the standard of its greens and it is usual for the greens and the course to be in good playing conditions year round, and even after heavy rain the course is nearly always playable fairly quickly, even when other courses are not.
The eighteen holes fall naturally into three groups – The bottom or first five, the upper eight or top part of the course, and the final last five in the centre of the course and with each loop returning close to the clubhouse.
After your round we encourage you to accept a warm welcome into our clubhouse to enjoy a warm or cold refreshment, and to soak up the views of the splendid scenery visible from the clubhouse and weather permitting to spend some time relaxing on our wonderfully sited outdoor decking balcony.Skelmorlie Golf Club
