Carradale Golf Club

Carradale Golf Club, founded in 1906, is regarded by many as one of the Golf Course gems in Scotland yet fairly unknown.  It is located on the east coast of the Kintyre peninsula with panoramic views across the Kilbrannan Sound towards the Isle of Arran. Although only a 9 hole course, each one has its own feature and is very popular with the local and visiting players.

Gigha Golf Club
This is a lovely little golf course offering the most wonderful panoramic views of the island and mainland.  The course has three par 3's and some testing par 4's.  You had better have your driving in good trim when playing the Gigha course, as the rough can be very unforgiving!  Those of a weak disposition should take real care when teeing off the 4th medal, it can be very intimidating.
