Golf Courses around Oban

Published on July 30, 2019 by houseparties
Although most people associate golf in Scotland with the popular area of St. Andrews, Oban has its fair share of golf courses which also offer top-class golfing facilities and greens. There are three main golf courses within the Oban area, each with their own golfing experience to offer. Here’s a guide to golf courses in Oban.

Glencruitten Golf Club
Situated about one and a half miles away from the centre of Oban, Glencruitten Golf Club – also known as Oban Golf Club – may be a short course of nine holes, but it’s certainly one of the most scenic of courses in the whole of Scotland. Set among the hills of Glencruitten Estate, this golf course gives you the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of flora and fauna while you’re playing your round. There are many mature trees all around the course, including two particularly impressive Scots Pines, a native specimen, as well as colourful flowers like harebells and whins during the spring and summer months. When it comes to fauna, it’s common to spot buzzards, heron, pheasants and deer. At the top of the hill on the fourth hole, there is also the remains of an ancient Roman fort, a listed monument. The golf course has been designed so that it offers an enjoyable game for players of all levels, with good challenges for the more experienced player. Once you’ve finished your game, the club has excellent bar and lounge facilities, and there’s also a fully stocked golf shop if you need – or just want – to purchase any new equipment.

Isle of Seil Golf Club
Built on an old slate quarry site and farmland thirteen miles south of Oban, Isle of Seil Golf Club is a picturesque coastal course which offers amazing views over the Seil Sound. Another nine-hole golf course, holes five and eight are over the sea at high tide, and the shore at low tide, finishing over the old quarry on the ninth hole. Because of its location, this club offers a challenging and definitely interesting round of golf.

Taynuilt Golf Club
Just a 20-minute drive from Oban, Taynuilt Golf Club is set within some of the most spectacular scenery you could wish for. As you play your game of golf, you’ll be able to admire majestic mountains and the picturesque Loch Etive. A challenging nine-hole course, since this course opened in 1987 it has gone from strength to strength, and is now considered to be one of the best nine-hole courses in the entire area.
Although Oban doesn’t have the vast array of golf courses that you can find in some other areas in the country, what it does offer is enjoyable challenges and stunning landscapes which make for a great round of golf.
