West Kilbride Golf Club
The West Kilbride Golf Club lies on a beautiful strip of links land and raised beach adjacent to the coastal village of Seamill, West Kilbride and is the most northerly of Ayrshire’s true links courses. With its magnificent views of Arran, Bute and Cowal it makes a wonderful venue for the game and a fine test of golf.
In similar fashion to St. Andrews, the course follows an anti-clockwise route with a loop at the far end around the turn. Unlike St. Andrews though, out of bounds features frequently and nerves of steel are often required.
The entire course is exposed to even the slightest breeze but with the strongest of winds coming from the South West and North West these are the times you will experience links golf at its most demanding. Even in benign weather take care – holes like the 3rd and 13th will catch out those that release a careless drive (or second shot) and the 16th is a links masterpiece to relish.
