With sensational views of the of the Firth of Clyde towards the Isles of Arran and The Mull of Kintyre, the front nine is comparatively straight forward but wait till the turn for the fun to really begin. Challenges including the famous par 3 Postage stamp await making this one of the toughest 9 holes in golf.

It’s surprising that Colin Montgomery’s name doe not appear on the list above, he was brought up here, his father having been Club Secretary untill recently.
