The Irvine Golf Club, Bogside sports a traditional links course established over 100 years ago owing much of it's present day character to the design work of James Braid in 1926. The course provides a challenge to all with its subtle changes in direction and no two holes the same.
Irvine Golf Club hosts the Final Qualifying Rounds for the Open Championship when it is held at Turnberry or Royal Troon. In addition to this the P.G.A frequently stage their events at the course, including the Sunderland Of Scotland Masters.
The course demands accurate shot making, after all, it has produced three Scottish Amateur Champions in Hammy McInally, Jimmy Walker and Jack Cannon who honed their skills at Bogside.
The Links fairways built on sand , are divided by gorse and heather. Every hole has its own identity and the greens are fast and true. The neighbouring Gulf Stream ensures year round golf of the highest quality whilst the peaks of Arran produce a natural backdrop to complement the birdlife of the River Irvine and the Bogside flats where wildlife abounds.
Irvine Bogside is generally speaknig open to visitors thorughout the year. Tee times are available thorughout the week and if staying for an extended period can be combined for great value with Baraassie and Prestwick St Nicholas using the Open Qualifier Card.

Originally from Leven he joined the Ardeer golf club at Stevenston. However it seems he encountered problems transporting himself and his clubs to and from Ardeer and in the main was restricted to playing on an area of land known as "golffields" to the East of Irvine.
Robert Adam looked around for a suitable site on which a new golf course could be laid out and he saw the potential in the land at Bogside which then formed part of the estate of the 14th Earl Of Eglinton.
Adams inspiration was the causative factor in the creation of Irvine Golf Club but it was the experience, authority and leadership of a fellow golfer James Stewart which would turn this dream into reality.
The club which was still only in the minds of these two men, was to owe everything to this leadership.
On Friday 18th March 1887 thirteen men gathered at a meeting in the Kings Arms Hotel, Irvine, convened and chaired by Adam and from this gathering Irvine Golf Club was established.The conception and birth of Irvine Golf Club must be credited to a young man called Robert Adam who in 1884 came to work in Irvine.
