“The sweet spot where high handicappers are not overwhelmed, but good players are punished if they try to overpower the course and miss wide. Carradale nine hole links is studded with outcroppings of rock, which threaten a wild bounce on many holes, most memorably at the difficult par-3 7th. No less than seven of the nine holes are between 200 and 300 yards in length.”

Tom Doak, Golf Course Architect

Carradale Golf Club, founded in 1906, 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.
