The summer in this area never started this year with persistent rain resulting in many courses resembling a big. Largs though is in beautiful condition. We played a two ball here on Monday 6 November, big tee's and greens which were in great condition. I only had to take 1 preferred lie during the whole round as the course drains so well and the condition of the fairways being good. Only issue was the pace of play, we tee'd off at 11:27 and I hoped out on the 18th at 15:42 !!!. Great course though and given that it is not a links course, great condition too for this time of year.

I played as part of a 3ball and unfortunately we were stuck behind a 4 ball of old women.

After waiting 20 min for them to leave the 1st hole we got started and the pace of the 1st green caught us off guard.

We tried to play slowly however we kept on catching up on the old dears and a one point we were waiting 10 min while the old woman walked to the next tee then dropped off her bag and then went to hit her shot, this became very tedious and I would expect any other 4 ball to let us play through.

The course was immaculate and the greens were hard to read and gauge the pace.

The weather was excellent and I am looking forward to my next round.

Played in early July and the course was in superb condition. Whilst not long there are some interesting and tricky holes and as a 12 handicap I found it enjoyable and a reasonable challenge due to quickish greens and good bunkering. Reasonably flat and a decent pace of play, overall I would definitely lpay it again.

Staring playing golf here when I was 7. Haven't been back for over 20 years. It still had so many features that brought back great memories. However the biggest thing was the course itself. It was immaculate and the greens were exceptional. A real credit. We played a 3 ball and were never held up or pushed from behind. Couldn't recommend a round here enough. Look forward to another visit soon. Ps great value for money too! Well worth the trip down the coast. Pps make sure you get an ice cream from Nardinis after!

It was great to return to Kelburn for a game of golf with my Hubble. I have played here many times before and it never fails to delight. Great layout, great condition, fantastic views- my husband is from Millport- golf mixed but we still had a great day. Will definitely be back. Great value for money. A gem of a course 'soon by the water'

Sunny with a strong breeze. Pace of the greens caught everyone out. Nice easy start but became more difficult across the road. Lots of variation with challenging tee shots if you have a bad fade or slice. Very enjoyable, would play there again. Tired on completion but well satisfied.

Had an excellent round in the May sunshine on a terrific course with a tricky layout. Greens, for time of year are superb, slick and very undulating. Would not hesitate to recommend Largs golf club for a great visit.

Largs Golf Clubs is a decent course with oustanding views. Several lateral water hazards on the course which require tactical play. Staff were very friendly and I would recommend a visit. It was winter conditions when we played and it was lift to the side into the 1st cut but that didn't spoil what was an enjoyable round. This was also reflected in the cost of the round through teeofftimes which was good value for the time of year.

Excellent welcome by the club pro on arrival. He allowed us to tee off early. It started raining very heavily on the 3rd hole. The course was in beautiful condition and the greens particularly good. On the 9th hole the experience deteriorated. There was a visiting party of around 11-15 individuals playing in one 3 ball and the rest fourballs. They were loud and shouting and swearing at each other. On the 11th hole we had to wait on the tee for a full 14 minutes to tee off in the pouring rain. We called to play through this was ignored. On the 12th tee we were told aggressively we would not be getting through. We played the whole and walked in after completion. Day was ruined. We then could not enjoy the hospitality of the Bar steward Stuart Garrett and restaurant as the visiting party had a table booked in the dining area. Top avoid confrontation we ate in town.

Played the course today for the first time in around 15 years. Condition of the course was outstanding with the greens being the best I have played on all year, and considering this is Oct hats of to the greenkeeping staff who are obviously doing a superb job. Great mix of long and short holes with an excellent layout. Played in glorious sunshine which meant the views over to Millport and Arran were stunning.

Will definitely be playing again and would highly recommend this course to others.
