FIRST – The Warrior (336 yards, Par 4)

The Sleeping Warrior on the mountains of Arran provides a magnificent backdrop for this stunning opening right-to-left dog-leg. There are two bunkers just beyond the turn of the fairway while, farther on, an extensive pond to the right provides a watery grave for the wayward shot.

SECOND – Stravannan (324 yards, Par 4)

A tricky challenge particularly in a brisk west wind. The adjacent Stravannan Bay, which is out of bounds, can come into play from the tee with the preferred shot left of centre. Ditches, which provide hazards on the right of the fairway and about 140 yards out from the tee, have to be avoided … and a dry-stane dyke has to be cleared to reach the shore-side green.

THIRD – The Trap (162 yards, Par 3)

A well-named as a hidden burn snakes left of the approaches and across the front of the green with the shoreline on the right forming a lateral water hazard to add to the challenge of this signature hole.

FOURTH – The Dyke (410 yards, Par 4)

Players are first confronted with a wall – from which the hole takes its name – stretching across the route to the fairway. There are ditches to the right and directly in front of the putting surface which leaves the choice of approach: Go for the green or play safe and lay up!

FIFTH – Largizean (313 yards, Par 4)

This hole has a hidden ridge running at an angle across the fairway about 180 yards out from the tee. Often a drive down the middle can end up in the longer grass of the ridge. Again the choice is clear: drive to carry the hazard or lay up short leaving an approach of just over 100 yards.

SIXTH – Heathery (212 yards, Par 3)

The longer of the two par threes and requires a strong hit from the tee into a west wind. A ditch runs down the right-hand side of the hole and awaits the ball from a sliced drive.

SEVENTH – Dunstrone (305 yards, Par 4)

Two bunkers on the left of the fairway and whins on the right provide unforgiving hazards on this slight dog-leg which runs from right to left.

EIGHTH – The Peaks (283 yards, Par 4)

A whin-festooned ridge protecting the green which is hidden from the tee. Big hitters can carry the trouble, but the safe route is to play short and approach from about 100-120 yards. The hole takes its name from the rugged grandeur of Arran’s skyline.

NINTH – Quochag (266 yards, Par 4)

The finishing hole provides a birdie opportunity with the green reachable for big hitters . . . however bunkers await left and right of the putting surface. There is a carry of about 155 yards from tee to fairway. Whins, which lurk along the left side of the fairway and to the right of the green, have to be avoided.
