Golf

Take to the green

Golfers to Arran will be in seventh heaven – because there are seven (yes, seven) courses to play on Arran! There are three 18-hole courses (Brodick, Lamlash & Whiting Bay), two 9-hole courses (Machrie Bay and Corrie), one 11 hole par 3 (Lochranza) and the famous 12 holes at Shiskine Golf & Tennis Club.

Courses vary between parkland, such as Lamlash, to traditional links, such as at Brodick. Each course offers different challenges to the player, whether you’re a scratch golfer or a complete novice. Be prepared for blind holes, stunning scenery and well maintained courses.

Most clubs have excellent catering, either onsite or adjacent. Clubs and buggies can be hired and we recommend booking tee times, especially at busy times of the year.

You can, of course play one round at all seven (two rounds at Machrie Bay and Corrie) at a discounted rate with the fabulous Arran Golf Pass. Well worth considering, especially as it lasts 12 months, so you could split your golf over two Arran visits!
