THE COURSE

 

Hole by hole guide to the 6303 yard, par 71 course, with our professional's advice on where to hit it. Course record: 66. Ladies tees: 5206 yards, par 69. Laggan Bay, Islay is a majestic location, but real golfers are more interested in the golf course than anything else. This golf course will test all aspects of your game. Although the yardage is not long by modern standards, holes vary in length according to the strength and direction of the wind. You will need to avoid the rough, which can be penal in the summer. Good iron players will be rewarded by magnificent and consistent lies. And the greens will test your chipping and long putting ability.

GETTING TO ISLAY

 

Get the ferry to Islay from Kennacraig on Kintyre, landing at Port Ellen (2 hours 20 minutes) or Port Askaig (from 1 hour 55 minutes). Vehicle reservations are recommended. Kennacraig is on the west coast of the Kintyre peninsula, just south of Tarbert. To get there, you can take a route over the mainland, or catch a ferry to one of the islands and hop over to the Kintyre peninsula that way.
