Care on the Course Your Personal Safety

Please take great care when out on the course at this time of the year.  The ground conditions as you will be aware are very wet and slippery and all the wooden bridges and steps around the tee’s are especially slippery, as well as many of the areas of sloping grass surrounding the greens and tee’s and also on a number of the sloping fairways.  It is always the clubs intention to keep the course open and golf available whenever we can, but if conditions do deteriorate underfoot to a point where personal safety becomes an obvious concern then the course may have to be closed until the conditions improve.

Great Value Golf in Outstanding Scenery

Skelmorlie Golf Club in North Ayrshire, Scotland, is an excellent coastal moorland course.

The golf courses found on Scotland’s west coast are some of the best in the world – and Skelmorlie Golf Club is surely one of Scottish golf’s best kept secrets.  A bold claim of course, but given our location and our tremendous value for money, a confident one. We are sure that once you play the 18 holes on our golf course, taking in the outstanding scenic surroundings and the testing golfing challenge, then you will firmly agree with our claim, as you sit on our clubhouse balcony, relaxing under blue skies, and surrounded by some of the finest scenery in Scotland, that this is indeed a very fine place to play golf.

Skelmorlie golf course was originally designed by the five-time British Open Champion James Braid, who eventually laid out over 200 courses in the UK.  This golf course was initially renowned as a 13 hole layout, one of the few in the world. Today, with the addition of a further 5 holes, and although a short by modern standards layout, it is still a very challenging course in a traditional Scottish sense. The course is much loved and enjoyed by not only its loyal members but by the many visitors and guests who come here to enjoy it. Our course also boasts 7 very good Par 3’s which will test the very best of golfers and which often, by themselves, determine the eventual success of a round.

We always offer a very warm welcome to visitors from all over Scotland and indeed the rest of the UK and of course sometimes from much further afield – and often with many repeat visits. Membership enquiries to join Skelmorlie Golf Club are always welcome at any time, and we have packages and special offers to suit everyone.

So please do not hesitate to come and visit us and enjoy a round of golf on our course at any time of the year and delight in one of the most scenic coastal moorland golfing experiences in West Central Scotland.

Association of James Braid Golf Courses

View List

 

We are pleased to announce that Skelmorlie Golf Club is part of the Association of James Braid Courses. This exclusive association is only open to Courses that have been designed by the legendary James Braid.

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.  Skelmorlie Golf Course is listed in John Moreton’s booklet ‘James Braid, Golf Course Designer’.

The benefits of being in the association are that members of the association can play each others courses at special rates to enjoy and compare the Braid influences.
