Kilmarnock Barassie Golf Club
South West Scotland, Scotland
Just two miles north of Troon, this links course is an Open Championship qualifying venue with some of the best greens in Scotland.
The 18 hole course at Kilmarnock Barassie Golf Course is made up of 9 holes from the traditional course, created in 1887 and 9 holes of the Barassie Links course which was designed in the 1990’s. This mix of old and new provides golfers with a unique and special challenge and as such, the course has played host to a number of professional and amateur golf tournaments including as a Final Qualifying Course for the Senior Open Championship on a number of occasions.
The Barassie Links is a challenging golf course and features undulating fairways, pot hole bunkers and fast greens amongst a superb setting of the Ayshire coast. The fantastic 18th hole is particularly challenging and requires a great drive from a partly blind tee shot onto a bunker strewn fairway, followed by an accurate approach shot to a well-guarded green. Kilmarnock Barassie Golf Course is certainly not the foremost course in the area but is well worth the visit if you fancy stopping by whilst on a golf vacation to Scotland.
