Brunston Castle is a 6,662-yard parkland course, designed by Tom Mackenzie (when with Donald Steel design) in the mid 1990s, located in the rolling South Carrick Hills in Ayrshire. The Water of Girvan transects the layout, allowing water hazards to come into play on several holes.
The river features on the tough, 404-yard, par four, 7th hole, named “The Big Roundel.” The narrow fairway runs alongside the water and anything left off the tee will end up in thick rough on the bank or, worse still, into the river. On the other side of the fairway, a large bunker at around the 220-yard mark awaits any tee shot that is pushed too far on that side. Add the fact that the contoured green is difficult to read and par four on the scorecard becomes a real prize.
“Bruxelles” is the name of the 386-yard, par four, closing hole where the fairway rises over twenty feet back up toward the clubhouse where a warm welcome is guaranteed as you relax in comfort after your round at Brunston Castle.
