In their Words…….
Whiting Bay Golf Course is a hidden gem of a course, set above the village on the south east coast of Arran. Whiting Bay Golf Course is an 18 hole par 63 course playing 4092 yards from the yellow tees. It was founded in 1895.
Although quite short, the course is a fair test for golfers of all abilities and features some particularly challenging par 3s. Enjoy the spectacular panoramic views across the Firth of Clyde to the Ayrshire coast and to Holy Isle. The first four holes climb gently up the hillside to a plateau, where holes five to ten weave their way among the heather and gorse.
The eleventh hole marks the very top of the course, after which a descent commences from twelve to fifteen. For the final three holes, one must climb up a little once more, before descending the eighteenth to the clubhouse.
The Clubhouse is situated by the 18th hole and nestles in a small coppice with the large car park nearby. The patio at the clubhouse provides a great spot to partake of a rewarding drink whilst watching other players putt out at the eighteenth.Whiting Bay Golf Club
