Belleisle golf course is my local course and I have played for 15+ years. It is a great course but does lack attention in some areas. There is never enough sand in the bunkers ever apart from that it is an excellent course for recreational golf as well as golf societies and outing.

Testing golf course, which is long and punishing, if of the target. When combined with neighbouring Seafield golf course, it makes an ideal choice for a perfect golfing weekend. The quality of the greens and fairways were excellent. As it is a Muncipal golf course, the general up keep of the course desire much improvement as the bins on the... More

Popped in for a quick lunch soon after opening. What a difference!. Lovely bright, airy and spacious area to sit and enjoy some good plain fare. Sandwiches and cooked food such as breakfast are all very good value. The home made soup is excellent! well worth a visit.

This municipal course is very playable and in a great location. Not to expensive and one of the few where you can still turn up and get a tee time. They now have the single type buggies for hire which are a load of fun for the lazy golfer.

Without doubt one of the Best Municipal Golf Courses in Scotland & having played many of the 'Top 100' UK Golf Courses one of my favourites! A MUST play for any golfer it features some truly spectacular holes, no weak score-makers & is in my opinion the Best parkland course in the UK. This is an immaculately manicured course where...

Belleisle golf course is regularly rated in the Top 10 of UK's public courses, for good reason - the course is a magnificent example of James Braid's vision. The signature hole is the 6th which offers fantastic views across to the Isle of Arran and the 13th is a really tough par 4 which will ruin many a card.

Nice parkland layout. Lots of 'different' holes. Bunkers are really strategically placed. A must play if in Ayr. When hotel and pro shop are done, this will be absolutely awesome. Go play!
