There has been a golf club beside Gairloch Sands since 1898. Before that time, Parish records show that golf was regularly played on the links amongst the sand dunes.
The nine-hole course is one of the most attractive in Scotland, set beside the golden sands of Gairloch with stunning views across Gairloch Bay towards Skye and the Outer Hebrides. Visitors are welcome at any time. It is a walk-on course, with no need to book a tee time in advance. The only exception to this rule is when competitions are in progress.
