Stornoway Golf Club's 18-hole course on the Isle of Lewis offers panoramic views of Stornoway harbour. Set amongst the woodlands of Lews Castle, the course has plenty hazards such as mature trees, heather and gorse to test your golfing skills.
With its spectacular Atlantic Ocean views, Harris Golf Club offers a unique golfing experience on the beautiful Isle of Harris. The 9-hole course has many demanding holes with more than a few natural hazards. Follow in the footsteps of Nick Faldo and Ronan Rafferty who have both previously enjoyed playing a round on the course.
For another round of testing golf head for Benbecula Golf Club where you can challenge your way around testing holes with water hazards and bunkers interrupting the smooth fairways and greens. Winds blowing in from the Atlantic Ocean add to the difficulty of this 9-hole course which requires golfers to use every club in their bag.
Askernish Golf Club on South Uist is a beautiful 18-hole course which runs parallel with the island’s shoreline and is an excellent example of links golf, complete with tricky obstacles and long slopping greens. It was originally designed by renowned golfer and course designer ‘Old’ Tom Morris, but was abandoned in the 1920s. However, a restoration programme carried out in the early part of this century has returned this natural and exposed course to its former glory.
Further south, on the Isle of Barra, head for the most westerly golf course in the UK, Barra Golf Club. This short 9-hole links course offers many challenges, and like all the greens on the Isle of Barra, the course is protected by low voltage wiring to deter livestock. This unusual feature adds to the charm of this magnificent course.
