The project to transform the interior of Girvan Golf Clubhouse to guarantee its long-term future is now complete. The extensive refurbishment means that the South Ayrshire Council facility will remain an important fixture for years to come.

The £172k refurbishment programme involved a full internal upgrade at Girvan Clubhouse, including the dining room, bar, locker rooms, a new disabled WC and showers. The entrance area and corridor has also been refreshed, heating improved, damp issues resolved, with new electrical fittings improving efficiency and reducing costs.

The project was delivered by Kier Construction.

Councillor Bill Grant, South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Economic Development, Tourism & Leisure said the improvements were welcome, "With work completed at Girvan, I'm sure these greatly improved facilities will encourage people to come back to the course time and time again.

"The new look clubhouse complements our ongoing project to build the new £6 million pound Quay Zone leisure centre in the town, which when it opens next year, will further add to the area's improved leisure services.

"We're committed to promoting healthy lifestyles and I hope that this continued investment in South Carrick will help make it easier for people to make positive, active choices in the New Year."

Golf South Ayrshire operates eight, varied courses which are open all year round, with new members welcome. The courses range from links to parkland, each with individual character and with varying degrees of difficulty there is a course to suit every level of golfer. These include three classic James Braid designs, the 4th most difficult course in Scotland at Troon or a leisurely stroll in the Carrick Hills.
