Hole 9 Go to 8

No. 9 - Bruce's Castle

449 Yards
Par 4


The only hole on the Ailsa Course without a bunker. The tee is perched on a rocky cliff, offering spectacular views of the coast. The hole makes its way up a narrow fairway toward the famous lighthouse. This was one of the few holes left unchanged from 1994. Remains of the castle belonging to Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland from 1306-1329, can be seen from the ninth green and 10th tee.
