18 hole golf course set in stunning scenery nestling in the hills of Glencruitten Estate. 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.
