Golf Course Review

Tobermory Golf Club is a 9 hole golf course set on the cliffs overlooking Tobermory Bay. Panoramic views of Ardnamurchan, Loch Sunart and the Isle of Skye are astounding. Found on the remote Isle of Mull, the club is a member of the Argyll & Bute Golf Union.

Sam Cooper's Tobermory Golf Club Review

The drive from Iona to Tobermory, across the Isle of Mull, is spectacular. Mountains and lochs, deer and highland cows. Tobermory itself is charming with its' bright houses the set of an old children's TV show. I was more interested in the 9 holes on top of the hill... not strictly links, this 9 hole gem is perched on the cliffs above Tobermory Bay.

The blind first is fun - over a marker to a fairway terracing down beyond. Long drives to the bottom equal blind seconds, with shorter ones finding a higher terrace with a full view of the green. The best holes were those atop 'cardiac hill' - as the club calls it! From here, you look back over this quirky little course and out to sea.

In general, the course is wide open. The holes make full use of both the topography and the views across the Sound of Mull. There are a few pockets of bracken, but the trees are largely out of play. This is a course where the driver can be enjoyed with careless abandon. Maybe a little soft underfoot for my liking, but with great greens and gorgeous vistas, it's a beautiful place to spend an afternoon.
