New Walking Routes on Darley Golf Course Close to Completion

darley paths

Work to create safer walking routes across Darley Golf Course is nearing completion, thanks to funding from the Scottish Government's Placed Based Investment Programme. 

The enhancement comes ahead of our £5 million investment in our golf courses in South Ayrshire, which will see a range of upgrades over the next three years. 

One of the existing paths has been extended to connect Kilmarnock Road with Dundonald Road, and two new grass paths are being prepared to allow all non-golfing members of the public safe access to open green space. 

As part of the ongoing project, six different length circular walking routes will be developed, and signage, information boards, and bins will be provided along the routes so that litter and dog waste can be disposed of responsibly.  

Councillor Brian Connolly, South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Sport and Leisure, said: "These works are essential to allow Darley Golf Course to be more accessible and safer to the public, as well as enhancing it for our regular golfers.  

"The course is very popular thanks to its stunning location, and I know that the improvements will make it easier for everyone to enjoy."
