Brunston Castle golf course is a hidden gem, the dream of a diamond merchant and designed by Donald Steel the Burns course comprises of 2 par 5's, 3 par 3's and 13 par 4's and measures 6556 yards from the Championship tees.

Split by the Water of Girvan which is a salmon river and sheltered by the rolling hills clever use of the natural contours and the creation of a number of strategically placed ponds have created some spectacular golf holes.

The greens are to a high standard and provide excellent putting surfaces throughout the year. Furthermore the relaxing environment of the restaurant allows you to look out over the golf course while enjoying a well deserved meal after your round.
