A Round With A View...
Gigha’s lovely little 9-hole golf course offers you the most wonderful panoramic views of the island and mainland.
The course has three par 3's and some testing par 4's. You had better have your driving in good trim when playing the Gigha course, as the rough can be very unforgiving! Those of a weak disposition should take real care when teeing off the 4th medal, as it can be very intimidating.
History of Golf on Gigha
Golf was introduced on Gigha in the late 1800s and continued to be played at the Leim course until around 1925. There followed a 60- year gap until 1986, when keen local golfers Alastair "Plumber" Brown and gamekeeper John Wright designed and built a 9-hole course at Tarbert Farm.
In 1988, estate plans were laid to form a golf course at Drumeonbeg Farm and Alastair and John were again responsible for the lay- out and creation of the new course.
The first ball was driven off only two months after work started.
