Carradale Golf Course
is regarded by many as one of the Golf Course gems in Scotland yet fairly unknown. It is located on the east coast of the Kintyre peninsula with panoramic views across the Kilbrannan Sound towards the Isle of Arran. Although only a 9 hole heathland/moorland course, each one has its own feature and is very popular with the local and visiting players. It is a tricky course with small greens and natural hazards which can test even the experienced golfer. It has been described as the ‘most sporting nine-hole course in Scotland’. The 6th hole (Pudding Bowl) has recently featured on the Signature Special Hole Golf website.
The course measures 4576 yards and has four tee markers :

The ever-changing linksland at Machrihanish Dunes gives you a rare opportunity to create and craft golf shots you might never have imagined playing before. :
