The course at Benbecula Golf Club is a great test for golfers of all levels, making splendid use of Benbecula's undulating flat terrain. The water hazards and bunkers on the course, combined with the undulating ground, place a premium on accurate club selection.
The course, 4359 yards off the medal tees is, as the standard scratch score rating of 62 indicates, never other than an excellent test of true golf. Any change in the strength or direction of the wind, that usually blows north-westerly towards the adjacent Atlantic Ocean, provides new challenges that are compounded by the undulating terrain and finely contoured greens cleverly located around the course.
With a good supply of bunkers plus a few meandering water hazards, all combine to present variety and challenge that requires a true test of club selection with the chances very much in favour of even the best of players being forced to use every club in the bag.
