Askernish Golf Course


Askernish Golf Course is the oldest golf course in the Western Isles and is a unique test for any grade of golfer. Restoration work has now begun on the eighteen holes laid out by ‘Old’ Tom Morris in 1891.

Askernish is a fine challenge for any grade of golfer. it has recently been restored to its original position under the guidance of Gordon Irvine (Master Greensman) and Martin Ebert (Architect) using entirely traditional design principles.

Enviromental experts have already hailed the Askernish as “the most natural links course in the world”: the dunes’ natural contours form the fairways, no artificial chemicals are used in maintenance, and during winter months sheep and cattle graze the course! The unique nature of the Askernish links and the culture of the Western Isles make South Uist a wonderful place to visit for all ages.
