The Course is a fine 4799 yard, Par 66 18 hole, with an SSS of 63. Players from beginners to experts will enjoy its fine springy turf, similar to the surface at the Championship links of Machrihanish just a few miles away. Spectacular views over the landscape, and over Sanda Island to the South, Ayrshire to the East, and Northern Ireland to the South West, will add to the Golfer's enjoyment of this well kept course with its small lush square greens. The variety of the holes, from the short "Punchbowl" 4th, to the dramatic long downhill drive from the 11 th Tee, will delight even the purist in Golf Course design. Dunaverty is just one of several fine courses available within a short distance, and visitors who take a break in Kintyre for a few days will be rewarded with a good choice of easily accessible, challenging and enjoyable courses. Generally, they are uncrowded and very reasonably priced, each is also unique. Nearby are the fine Championship Links at Machrihanish, which has both 18 and 9 hole courses. A few miles up the East of Kintyre is the scenic but challenging 9 hole course at Carradale, while for variety, the small 9 hole course on the Isle of Gigha (which translates from the Norse as "God's Island") makes a pleasant excursion. At the North end of Kintyre, Tarbert has a fine 9 hole course.
