Ardfin Golf Course

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 2017

Ardfin Golf Course: this ultra-exclusive private golf course is located on the Ardfin Estate, the private playground of Australian hedge fund manager Greg Coffey. The stunning seaside course occupies a spectacular setting at the southern end of the Inner Hebridean Isle of Jura.

The layout takes golfers on a wonderfully natural walk along the cliffs on the early holes, then down to the sea in the middle part of the course. Then a reasonably tough walk back up to the top of the cliffs on the closing stretch. Throughout, the generous width fairways offer plenty of encouragement to big-hitters, while the scenic splendour of sea and land, rugged coastline and neighbouring islands, is simply jaw dropping.

Stay & Play at Adrfin: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.
