Overview

The founding members totalled 11 and the committee numbered 7!

It wasn't until 1901 that course conditioning was taken seriously. The club then invested in a scythe, spade and brush.


Golf Course Review

Gairloch Golf Club is a wee nine-hole links with two sets of tees dates from 1898! Located beside a sandy beach, it is the centre of the middle of nowhere. The Minch, Isles of Skye, Harris and Lewis lie to the West. The mountains of Torridon lie to the South and the wilderness of Letterewe lies to the East. Just North is the small but important Highland hub of Ullapool.

Gairloch Golf Club is full of quirk as well as crossing holes. The second hole crosses the first. From the fourth green, you cross the eighth fairway to play the fifth. The ninth then crosses the eighth. With two sets of tees, the second set of tees takes 235 yards of the scorecard. The longest hole is 526 yards and the shortest hole is just 87 yards!
