Machrihanish Golf Club, located just a few miles from Campbeltown, is home to a historic links course designed by Old Tom Morris in 1879. This classic 18-hole course follows the natural contours of the dunes which run parallel to the Atlantic Ocean and Machrihanish Bay, presenting some of the greatest views in Scottish golf.
Head 11 miles south of Machrihanish and you’ll find another fine links golf course. Dunaverty Golf Club is a haven for golfers and wildlife alike with an abundance of birds and flora on display and possibly even a chance sighting of an otter to add to a memorable experience. The course provides a challenge for all handicaps with its testing layout and undulating fairways.
Further north on the Isle of Mull, the 9-hole Tobermory Golf Course enjoys a wonderful location set on the cliff tops above Tobermory Bay. The hilly nature of the course provides a tough test for all golfing abilities, which include past Open Champion Tom Watson.
Port Bannatyne Golf Course is just one of the courses found on the Isle of Bute, the most accessible of all the islands off Scotland's west coast. Port Bannatyne is almost unique in having just 13 holes, with the first five holes being played again before a separate 18th. From the highest point of the course, at the 8th tee, golfers can enjoy the views towards Ettrick Bay, Loch Fyne and the Kintyre peninsula.
Back on the main land, Glencruitten Golf Club is a short and scenic 18-hole course set in the beautiful Glencruitten Glen. Situated about a mile and a half from Oban, the course provides an enjoyable round with a mix of tough approaches and difficult fairways.
