Glencruitten Golf Course is James Braid's hidden gem nestling among the hills of Glencruitten Estate on the outskirts of Oban, Argyll, Scotland.
Flora and fauna abound on the course and in the spring and early summer it's a splash of colour with the pale-blue iridescence of the harebells and the violent patches of yellow of the whins.
There are mature trees throughout the course and in particular there are two fine specimens of the native Scots Pine of the ancient Caledonian Forest which are protected by Tree Preservation Orders. A considerable amount of new planting has been undertaken and the benefits are yet to come.
Among the fauna, Buzzards are a regular sighting, as are Pheasants, Heron and Deer. Although not visible, there is the remains of a vitrified Roman fort, on top of the hill on the 4th hole, which is a listed ancient monument.
From Oban town centre, follow the A816, sign-posted for Campbeltown, Lochgilphead and the hospital through Argyll square. Approximately 300 yards along this road you will see a church (with tall steeple) immediately in front of you . . . follow the road that takes you up the left side of this church for approximately half- a -mile, and the course is on the right.
