KA Leisure, who administer the courses at Irvine Ravenspark, Auchenharvie and Routenburn in Largs announced the closure of all their leisure facilities, including full closure of the three golf courses, for an indeterminate period.
Similarly east Ayrshire leisure have announced the closure of all their facilities, incuding the municipal course at Annanhill, until further notice.
Golf South Ayrshire, who look after the three municipal courses in Troon, three in Ayr as well as the courses in Maybole and Girvan have announced that, in the meantime, the courses remain open for play but clubhouse facilities will not be available at the course locations until further notice.
In a heartwarming show of togetherness and consideration for fellow golfers, an appeal from Irvine Ravenspark Club Captain Colin McKinnon on social media during the afternoon, asking other local clubs to consider allowing access to the Ravenspark members to other local courses at a reduced fee, to enable them to keep playing following the closure of their course, received quick positive responses from a number of clubs throughout the county. Great to see the Ayrshire golfing community coming together to help each other out during these testing times.
