Largs – Senior Open – Stroke Play

Largs Golf ClubFor our next event we travelled to Ayrshire and the well established Largs Golf Club.   A parkland course, which features winding burns, lush fairways, tree-lined doglegs and undulating greens. Situated in front of Kelburn Castle in the west of Scotland on the Firth of Clyde, with scenic views of the islands of Cumbrae, Bute and Arran in the background, with Arran’s Goat Fell and the ‘Sleeping Warrior’ dominating the landscape. The golf course was in excellent condition which made it easier for me as I scored 3, 3, 4, 3, 4, 4, 4, 3, 3, to reach the turn in a two under par 31. I started back with three pars, the first 5 on my card coming at the par 5 twelfth. A birdie and three pars followed before I began to play safe and finished with bogies at the 17th and 18th despite good drives on both holes. However, my net 62 was good enough to win The McMaster Trophy at my first attempt, along with a £100 Voucher. Largs Win 2011Will obviously be back in 2013, but don’t expect quite the same result, but I’ll try. The facilities toilets, showers, catering etc were first class and we were made to feel welcome, despite returning a net 62 !!   If you haven’t already played here then it is a “Must Play” course with easy walking and a good variety of holes. The first, a par 3, requires a club more than you think as it is up hill to a blind green. The rest of the course however is a very pleasant walk indeed.
