New Cumnock Golf Club
New Cumnock Golf Club was established in 1896 using ground across the A76 from its present position, as shown in the map below.
It moved to its current position in 1901 and the course is one of many designed by Willie Fernie. While a nine hole course some of the holes can be testing as you criss cross burns and ditches.
The course was designed by Willie Fernie in 1901 and is a 9 hole par 33 parkland course. New Cumnock offers a great deal to golfers of all abilities.
The 1st – A long carry over some rough ground to a broad fairway & then uphill to the green. The Ladies tee is situated in the shelter of Pine Trees and is forward enough to make the Fairway easily reachable.
The 2nd – All tees are within the same area and with a drive of over 150 yards you will easily get over the burn which traverses the course, be careful though if you lay up short as the Fairway slopes down to the left and towards the burn!
The 3rd- Again all tees are within the same area and it is downhill towards the Fairway, beware of Out of Bounds to the right, which is the road to Lochside Hotel, and the fairway slopes to the left and some rough ground. The green slopes significantly to the left and is guarded by bunkers and small embankments.
The 4th – While the tees are separate a drive of about 200 yards will get you over the ditch, be careful if you lay up short as the Fairway is narrow before the burn and surrounded by some boggy ground, with the railway Out of Bounds to the right. Once over the ditch the Fairway broadens out towards the green, however the railway is still there to the right.
The 5th – The longest hole on the course with hazards to the right of a ditch and some rough ground. The burn that traverses the course is a good 240 yards away and once over you are up and over to the green, be careful though as the Fairway slopes significantly to the left and some rough ground and the green has a tricky deep bunker lurking behind.
The 6th- A nice par 3 with the tees against the wall bordering the road to Lochside Hotel. The Fairway is broad and bordered by avenues of trees.
The 7th – That burn is there again but just in front of the tees. You have some boggy ground to drive over before you reach the Fairway which this time slopes to the right. The green is over the hill nestling in low ground beyond the rise.
The 8th – A long uphill par 3 with rough ground to the right to which the Fairway has a slight slope. Ladies have the advantage of a forward Red Tee. The green is a Postage Stamp with a down slope to the right, left and beyond and well guarded by bunkers.
The 9th – The shortest on the course with no fairway, you drive over rough ground and a ditch to a generous green, with bunkers to the left and right. Again Ladies have an advantageous forward and elevated Tee.
