Isle of Jura, Argyle & Bute
Australian course architect Bob Harrison.
4 km SW of Craighouse, Isle of Jura. From the mainland by ferry to the Isle of Islay (2 hours plus), then by ferry from Islay to Jura (10 minutes).
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.
Private club - guests can only play if hosted by a member or if staying in the onsite accommodations.
The development plan for Ardfin envisages the inclusion of high-end luxury accommodations being made available on the Estate from 2020. The stately Jura House will be available on an exclusive use basis, while The Quadrangle (converted farm buildings) will offer luxury two-bedroom apartments. Don't even think about booking-in, unless you have seriously deep pockets!
