Tee Off in Oban

With the recent spotlight on Oban's own Robert MacIntyre, who finished second in the European tour in Denmark, it's a great time to highlight the fantastic golfing opportunities in Oban & Lorn. You won't walk away with a half million pounds like our hero Robert did, but for a few pounds you can tee off at some of Scotland's most scenic and enjoyable courses.

Scenic Glencruitten Golf Club in Oban

Golf is thought to have evolved in Scotland in the Middle Ages, and though the technology and skills may have developed since then, play a round here and you still get a sense of what compelled our ancestors – not only are all west coast courses different, many, especially those with proximity to the sea, play differently every day. Much of the attraction lies in the setting.

There’s plenty of choice for the golfer wherever you are here. In Oban, head for James Braid’s hilly Glencruitten Golf Club  or enjoy peace and luxury while brushing up on your skills at the driving range and course at the luxurious Isle of Eriska Hotel.

With golf a popular activity for locals as well as visitors, most towns, and many villages, including Taynuilt and Dalmally, have their own charming courses. 

Bring your clubs or rent them at the course, but don't miss an opportunity to play golf in its very home!
