Kyles of Bute Golf Club - Simply Amazing

What's on

Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the hill above Kames, the golf course offers truly panoramic views across the water to the Island of Bute.

During the round there are other stunning aspects across Loch Fyne to the Mull of Kintyre, and south to the Ayrshire coast past Arran. The golf course has nine very intriguing holes, all quite different in design, requiring careful choice of both club and shot.

Although there are no bunkers or traps, there are burns, patches of heather and gorse, and blind shots on two holes to keep everyone on their toes! There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the wildlife as the deer and numerous birds of prey can often be seen, and heard. Just look at this video
