Welcome to Stranraer Golf Club, designed by 5 times Open champion James Braid

Welcome to Stranraer Golf Club, the final golf course designed by the highly esteemed James Braid, who was 5 times Open champion.

Situated in South West Scotland on the shores of Loch Ryan, the 6308 yard parkland course is set on gently undulating ground.  It affords exceptional views over the loch to Ailsa Craig, the Isle of Arran and beyond.

Visiting golfers find the course a delight throughout the year.  The warm wash of the Gulf Stream provides the region with a mild climate making play possible on all but a handful of days.

It is the goal for all staff to ensure that a game on this skillfully designed course, complemented by genuine hospitality, remains etched in your memory.
