Argyll Golf Courses Map

Argyll Golf Courses Map
Argyll and the Isles is home to some of the most scenic golf courses in Scotland. Set in beautiful coastal locations, the courses offer stunning views from every tee. Each course has its own distinctive character, from rugged heathland to pristine parkland to historic links courses. With thirty courses to choose from, there’s something for everyone, from the beginner to the scratch golfer. Play a round of golf on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, go on an island golfing adventure or join the courses together for an unforgettable Scottish golfing break.

Loch Lomond, Helensburgh and Cowal
Loch Lomond and Helensburgh offers fabulous golf courses within striking distance of the central belt of Scotland. Enjoy a day’s golfing at Helensburgh Golf Club, Loch Lomond Golf Club, The Carrick on Loch Lomond Golf & Spa and Cardross Golf Club. Go ‘doon the watter’ to Dunoon for more great golf at Cowal Golf Club, Blairmore & Strone Golf Club and Innellan Golf Club. Slightly further afield on Argyll’s Secret Coast you’ll find the nine-hole Kyles of Bute golf course – a hidden gem! Set on the hillside above Kames, the course offers panoramic views to Bute. Watch out for circling birds of prey!

The islands
Many of Argyll’s islands are home to a golf course (or two!). If you love a relaxed golfing environment in a glorious setting, then you’ll love these island golf courses. Visitors are welcome. Often you just turn up and pay your fees into the clubhouse honesty box. The island of Bute has three glorious golf courses, Bute Golf Club, Rothesay Golf Club and Port Bannatyne Golf Club, which unusually has 13 holes. Tobermory Golf Club and Craignure Golf Club on Mull are cracking courses, as are Colonsay Golf Club, Isle of Gigha Golf Club and Vaul Golf Club on Tiree. But one of the highlights must be Machrie on Islay. This eighteen-hole links course, laid out in 1891, has incredible views across Laggan Bay. And if the weather turns, well, you can always head to the distilleries.

Oban and Mid Argyll
Enjoy peaceful countryside, wonderful wildlife and a warm welcome at the golf courses in this beautiful part of Argyll. Glencruitten Golf Course is James Braid's hidden gem nestling among the hills of Glencruitten Estate on the outskirts of Oban. Dalmally Golf Club is set among stunning Argyll scenery. The River Orchy meanders through the course and there’s native Scottish woodland at the centre. Taynuilt Golf Club, Inveraray Golf Club and Lochgilphead Golf Club all offer challenging golf with beautiful views.

Kintyre packs in three of Scotland’s best links golf courses within 20 miles, Machrihanish Golf Club, Machrihanish Dunes and Dunaverty Golf Club. At Machrihanish Golf Club you play off the only opening tee in the world that requires you to carry the Atlantic or at least part of it! This spectacular course has earned its place in the world's top 100. Carradale Golf Club on the east coast of Kintyre and Tarbert at the north are excellent nine-hole courses. From Campbeltown you can catch the Kintyre Express to the Antrim coast of Northern Ireland where there are even more world-class golf courses to discover.
