A James Braid links that has hosted qualifying when the Open is held at nearby Royal Troon or Turnberry.

Irvine Golf Club

Ayrshire, Scotland

Overview

Irvine Golf Club, or Bogside, is one of the northernmost links on the rich Ayrshire coastline on the Firth of Clyde. Located a few hundred metres inland, the Bogside Flats are located to the west, the River Irvine winds its way past on the south side of the course and a railway runs by the course on the east side.

A classic links in every sense of the word, the course is firm underfoot and is accented by gorse and heather with a smattering of blind shots to undulating greens with punishing bunkers.

Irvine Golf Club is used by the R&A as a Final Open Qualifying Course. It has also co-hosted the Amateur Championship and the British Seniors Open.

There are only two par 3's on the course and one par 5! Fifteen par 4's make for a real challenge.
