About Fort William Golf Club

Fort William Golf Club sits in the shadow of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, amid breathtaking Highland scenery. The course is set in beautiful countryside with spectacular views. The cliffs of Ben Nevis hang overhead, green fairways meander ahead and stiff challenges await at the short holes.
An 18 hole heathland course which measures 6217 yards from the championship tees, par 72 and has a mixture of testing holes from the 566 yard 4th to the 110 yard and 125 yards short holes at the 3rd and 6th. The 6th is perhaps the jewel in the course – a wide inviting green wrapped around by a Highland burn, with trees surrounding the holes if you’re short. The course is a fair test of golf for all abilities.

First built in 1975, Fort William was overhauled in 1995, which brought huge improvements to its playability. However, it has retained its charm and appeal to beginners and more experienced golfers alike.

If you decide to play here, keep a particular eye out for the par-3 sixth. It’s one of the most stunning holes in the area – but it’s also fraught with danger. The wide green is surrounded by trees, while you must also navigate a burn. It’s got potential to be a card-wrecker if you leave it short.

While in the area, Fort William has plenty to offer away from the golf course, too. This is where the West Highland Way finishes, while the Great Glen, which splits the country in two from west to east via its canal system, is truly a sight to behold.
