Par 70

Rating 0.0

Stranraer Golf Club, located in southwest Scotland on the shores of Loch Ryan, is set on gently undulating ground. The parkland course affords exceptional views over the loch to Ailsa Craig, the Isle of Arran and beyond.

Holes to look out for include three par-4s: the third, fifth and 11th holes. On the 403-yard third, a winding burn is crossed three times to reach a green set between a large bunker on the left and a steep bank sloping toward the burn on the right. The 382-yard fifth starts from an elevated tee down to a tight, sloping fairway set between a densely gorsed embankment and two inviting fairway bunkers. No. 11, at 382 yards, requires a demanding tee shot, with trees and out of bounds on the left, then a steep rise to a very fast green.

Stranraer Golf Club was designed in 1950 by the distinguished golf course architect James Braid. It was the last course he designed before he died in 1950.

Good greens, great location.

Dry weather has made bounces difficult to predict, but the greens at Stranraer are in great shape. Lovely clubhouse. Views over Loch Ryan add to the enjoyment. Worth another visit!

STRANRAER GOOD LOCATION & VIEWS

On arrival guy in pro shop was very friendly & informative, advised us where to go etc. Course was in good condition & quite challenging. Good mix of holes but a few a bit unfair for ladies. Play was very slow indeed due to some fourball visitors being in front of a Matchplay Competition & my wife & myself stopped a couple of times to allow the Matchplay guys through, which actually just created a bigger hold up, as the 4 balls did not seem to have the same etiquette. Clubhouse facilities were fine. Would recommend to others.

A bit special

My wife and I played this lovely course. The young lady at the starter's office was charming and we had time to have coffee and cake - both excellent and very reasonably priced. Course was great, although some of the long uphill holes had us gasping a bit. Finished off with an excellent late lunch. Great day out!

Beautiful views

A good course with variety. A couple of blind holes which presented a wee problem as I was on my own, but not a problem if you hit straight!
