Hidden gem

Pro was very helpful gave us lots of information without prompting, putting green was was huge and very well maintained with nets close by.
Only one tee marker on tees seemed a bit odd.
Course condition was very good and it has my recommendation, my son and I had a great day in very windy conditions.

Beautiful links course, challenging bunkers, a few un sighted greens.

This course was challenging but fair.

In excellent condition with short fairways and medium speed greens

The 4th, 5th and 6th holes are the trickiest on the course with elevation changes and the railway and river out of bounds

Leave the driver in car! All but 2 holes are par 4s . If you have a driving iron you will find it useful.

Great course - but tight!

Played here several times over the years and never disappoints. After the weather we've had over the past few days parkland/moorland courses would be heavy/wet so looked for a links course and Bogside came up on the site. Old man never played here so i knew we had to book.
Course was busy but all ran on time. No hold ups on the course either. Staff were friendly and attentive too. The course itself was in good condition - tees and greens excellent only let down with some scabby fairways (when I hit them!)
Recommend this course if you like a challenge! Will be back!

Unreal Conditions

Played this course today, and given the recent weather, the course is in superb condition.

Quick greens, dry fairways. The staff couldn't have been nicer, got a warm welcome from both the pro and the starter.

Will be back 100%

A testing course with an extremely friendly welcome

We played the course with a wind blowing, not the best conditions in which to play an unknown course , and next time..... because there will be a next time.... we will know what is waiting over the hill for us.
I must add we had probably the friendliest welcome from the starter that we have had from any visiting Golf Club and I would not hesitate to recommend both the course, the clubhouse and the starter to anyone.

A great links type course

Social party of 16 had a very enjoyable round at this quite splendid course. The greeting from the time we arrived and throughout the day was friendly and welcoming. The catering for the after round meal was first class and appreciated by all those present. We would certainly consider returning.

Really friendly Irvine golf club

From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and made us feel at home. Whilst it’s still early for golf the course was in good condition. We shall return later in the season

Superb Golf Course

On a stretch of coastline that boasts probably ten of the finest links golf courses anywhere in the world, Irvine is right up there with the best of them at a fraction of the cost. Short par fives, only two par threes, but a fantastic selection of reachable short quirky par fours that are fun and challenging.
A course built into the natural terrain by James Braid, one of his masterpieces, the type of course that no-one would ever build nowadays unfortunately. Great to be able to actually reach most of the par fours. No two holes alike and not a weak hole on the course. A bit slow as fourball in front held me up for twelve holes and wouldn't let me play through. But nothing could take away from the enjoyment of playing this superb track. Best golf since I played the two courses at Machrihanish earlier this year .

Fantastic review. Disappointing etiquette from the foursome in front which I can only apologise for. Clearly you know the area well and delighted that you appreciate how well our course stands up in the face of strong competition.

Hope we see you again.
