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.

The course was redesigned in 2014 to form a 9 hole 18 tee layout with a total yardage of 5004 from the white medal tees. The SSS for the medal tees is 68 and 69 for the ladies medal tees. The general play Yellow tees yardage for the course is 4840 (2411 yards for the front 9 and 2429 yards for the back 9)

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.

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.
