Dunaverty Golf Club: whereas the fabulous championship courses of Machrihanish and "Mach Dunes" are the main targets for golfers travelling to the southern end of the Mull of Kintyre, Dunaverty is also well worth a visit. A further 20-minute drive south from Campbeltown or Machrihanish, the course sits directly alongside the Mull's southern coast, giving views onto the North Channel (Straits of Moyle), Sanda Island and Ailsa Craig (of Turnberry "fame").
Although not the longest of courses, with a par of 66 and a modest 4,799 yards from the tips, golfers of all abilities will enjoy this scenic and natural links. The holes weave their way through the wind-contoured terrain, with plenty of natural hazards along the way.
Pick of the holes: golfers will particularly need to master the collection of seven par 3s, which range from the 245-yard 6th (Arthur's Seat) down to the 123-yard 10th (Mount Zion).
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, day tickets, etc. [Last updated: 2023].

Dunaverty is located alongside Dunaverty Rock and the ruins of Dunaverty Castle, which once sheltered Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland and the most famous warrior of his generation. The ruin is most famous for the conflict between warring Clans in 1647 which culminated in the surrender and subsequent massacre of the 300-strong Royalist garrison by the besieging Covenanters (presbyterians).
