With seven golf courses, Arran is a golfer’s paradise:
- three 18 hole golf courses in Brodick, Lamlash and Whiting Bay
- three nine-hole courses in Corrie, Machrie and Lochranza
- one unique 12-hole course in Shiskine
Most of the courses have good facilities, and nearly all provide excellent catering either on-site or nearby. Some golf courses allow dogs and children may be able to free when accompanied by a playing adult.

For those who want to play all the clubs there is an Arran Golf Pass available at £110 (price correct on 13th Aug. 2018). The pass is cheaper than paying for all seven courses individually.

Short overview about the golf courses and some impressions
is only 1 mile from Bellevue, and is probably the best know course on Arran. It is a unique 12 hole links course, that has had much written about it, including part of “Preferred Lies” by Andrew Greig.
is only about 4 miles up the coast from Bellevue Farm Cottages. It is a 9 hole course next to the sea, is fairly flat and suitable for all types of golfers, especially beginners. Families are made very welcome.
Corrie Golf Course is a very scenic 9 hole layout at Sannox. The views are fantastic and the greens are arguably the best on the Island. It is a short course and also fairly hilly. There is an excellent Tearoom there.
Lochranza is in a stunning setting, with 9 greens and 18 tees it is one of the toughest courses on the Island. You may see some deer while you play round.
Brodick is a flat 18 hole parkland seaside course with nice views towards Goatfell & Brodick castle. It has some great holes including 2 over the Rosa burn, & a superb par 5. Also the 8th, which requires a high draw landing on a tiny elevated green that is the size of a snooker table with Out of Bounds lurking!!
Lamlash is a hilly 18 hole course that will test all levels of golf. There are some great holes (all are very different), with some extremely difficult par 3’s off the yellow tees. If you have a single figure handicap, then you should play this course. It has an excellent clubhouse – with a great out look over the 18th green and up the 1st hole.
Whiting Bay is a hilly 18 hole course with lovely views over the Firth of Clyde. Some very interesting holes, with a must see 17th green & a very strong finishing hole where par is an excellent result. You are assured a warm welcome.
