Askernish, situated on the beautiful island of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, is home to a fine links golf course offering stunning surroundings and an ever-changing challenge for any grade of golfer. First laid out by Old Tom Morris in 1891, before being abandoned in the 1920s, has been fully restored to its original position under the guidance of Gordon Irvine (Master Greensman) and Martin Ebert (Architect) using entirely traditional design principles, this course is a must for passionate golfers.
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.
The Askernish Open Weekend is the flagship event of the Club’s annual golfing calendar. The event opened in 2008, which was attended by Kenny Dalglish, since then the event has grown into a 3 day tournament and in 2012 saw 112 players in attendance. Places for 2013 should be booked early as the event sells out very quickly.Read More >
