Brunston Castle Golf Club, Dailly, Ayrshire. (1992 – 2019)

The 18-hole course designed by Donald Steel opened in July 1992.

The Water of Girvan, a salmon river, separated the course with six holes to the north and twelve to the south. Surrounded by rolling hills and with its natural undulating fairways, excellent greens, and strategically placed water hazards the course provided a great test of golf.

The following statement was issued in January 2019; “Brunston Castle Golf Club – It is with great sadness that due to unforeseen circumstances Brunston Castle Golf Club is closing on Sunday 13th January. We would like to wish all our staff, members and visitors who have stuck by us through the years all the best.” 

With dwindling membership and competition from both private and municipal courses in the area - Turnberry, Troon, Barassie, Belleisle, Seafield, etc., the final round was played and the club closed its doors on Sunday 13th January 2019. The club was a member of the Ayrshire Golf Association. 

Alan Mcpherson is in the process of playing all Scottish golf courses in aid of Cancer Research UK. Alan played the Brunston Castle course in 2009, see link below.
