Welcome

South Ronaldsay Golf ClubEst.2005

We are a unique 9 hole golf course (with 18 tees) in Orkney that is set in the village of St. Margarets Hope. Regarded as the most challenging course in Orkney, we are open 7 days a week and visitors are most welcome. Our course is never too busy, so only large groups need enquire about a tee time.

We hope you come along and enjoy a round on our picturesque course.

The Course

The Course

This 9 hole course was constructed in the early part of this century and opened in June 2005. It has been designed to use all the clubs in your bag and will present a challenge to all levels of golfers.

There is a burn which runs through the middle of the course and this has to be negotiated several times during your round.

There are no par 5’s on our course but we have some of the hardest par 4’s on Orkney especially the long uphill 3rd and the downhill 8th with it’s partial island green. In the summer of 2014 we became an 18 tee, 9 hole course so there are options to play 9 or 18 holes. The back 9 is shorter than the front 9 so if you fancy a quicker round then this is ideal. With a total length of 4914 yards and a par of 65. The Standard Scratch is 64.

Location

Location

Our course is situated within the village of St Margaret’s Hope in South Ronaldsay, Orkney and is adjacent to the Bowling and Tennis clubs. It is 100 yards from the Cromarty Square on the Dr’s Surgery Road and is also within walking distance of Pentland Ferries Terminal, which serves the Gills Bay (Caithness) to St Margaret’s Hope route.

So you could leave your car at the Gills terminal and sail across in the morning, have a game of golf and return on the last sailing.

Facilities

We have a changing room/locker room area with male and female toilets attached to our machinery shed. This is where the honesty box for the green fees is situated.

With our course being situated so close to the village players have a choice of shops, pubs and a cafe where you can get refreshments.

In 2013 we installed a two booth outdoor practice/warm up net. At the rear of the club and at the far end of the ninth Green. This will allow players to warm up prior to matches.

We also have a large putting green that visitors can use, for a small fee, if they are not planning to play golf.
