Ailsa Championship Golf Course

Hole 1 - The Ailsa Craig - Overview

Ailsa 001

Hole 1 "Ailsa Craig"


Par 4 | 354 Yards

Ailsa's first hole of The Championship Ailsa Golf Course is named The Ailsa Craig, after an isle in the Firth of Clyde that is visible from almost everywhere on the course. This short opener must not be underestimated, as it is one of the most heavily bunkered holes on the course.

When playing the first hole, The Ailsa Craig, it is advisable to hit a full shot to the green, so players should look to play short of the fairway bunkers from the tee.

Perfect Play for Hole 1

This opening par 4 hole 1 of The Ailsa golf course is fairly benign but birdies and pars can't be taken for granted. The tee shot must be accurate as bunkers line both sides of the 1st fairway starting at 220 yards from the tee.
