Lamlash Golf Club

Lamlash Golf Course is a delightful Par 64 - 18 hole, golf course. Although quite short in distance, measuring at some 4,640 yds, it offers a serious challenge for golfers of all abilities. An example of the challenge set can be seen in the fact that it has many long Par 3’s, including two measuring over 220 yds. In addition to these lengthy Par 3’s, Lamlash offers many tricky Par 4 holes where an off-centre tee shot will more than likely never be seen again. Set on the hillside above the village of Lamlash on the Isle of Arran, there are some spectacular views overlooking the Clyde Estuary and the Ayrshire coast, including famous courses such as Royal Troon & Turnberry. With its lush fairways and beautiful greens, Lamlash Golf Course stands head and shoulders above the other courses on Arran and really is a must play course in the west of Scotland.

Corrie Golf Club

Established in 1892, this course features quite stunning views across the Firth of Clyde and onto Argyle from a number of vantage points and is often the talking pint of many visiting golfers to an island known as ‘Scotland in Miniature’. The course is quite a challenge, especially if the wind is its usual self - howling.Although quite small, you will have to have a certain amount of control over your ball if you are to put together a decent looking card. Notable holes include the fourth, where there’s a sign by the green warning of snakes! On a clear day, this is easily one of the most beautiful golf courses in Scotland and well worth the short trip from the mainland

Shiskine Golf & Tennis Club

The land for the Golf club was originally part of Drumadoon Farm. Prior to 1900 the port of Blackwaterfoot was a vital link for the Shiskine area. The formation of the golf course on its present site would have been in doubt had the feasibility study for a deep-water pier gone ahead, as the only viable location for it would have been at The Point, adjacent to the present 5th fairway. The accompanying buildings and access road would have rendered the land suitable for commercial use only.
