    Me and my friend spent most of this morning trying to find a course with-in 1 or 2 hours from Glasgow. After finding every course on the mainland was flooded we called Millport and we were told come and play.
    We took the gamble and drove from Glasgow, 1 hr and got the ferry which was only 10min, we got to the course and discovered full greens and tees.This was on the 27th Dec :-o coud'nt beleive how good it was and only 1.30 from GLasgow to the course. I will be doing this more often rather than running around central Scotland playing winter greens and frozen tees. Get over and play it, fantastic !!! :-))

    I am a member of Millport Golf Club - I have a second home on the island. I play there as often as work allows, generally at the weekends. There are many, like me, who take the 10 minute boat trip onto the island most weekends.
    Many are members of this club, & perhaps also another on the mainland. Our club was founded in 1888, & we used to have 2x18 hole courses here! Our current 18 holes have 2 or 3 of the best holes in the west of Scotland! I have played over 250 courses, in 4 continents - & have seldom heard such positive comments about a course than those I hear after a round here!It's got views of the sea & the Argyll mountains at every hole. We have a panorama that few golf courses can match - anywhere!It is most certainly worth the trip across the water, & the value for money is fabulous - it's a must for any golfer!

    The Course's biggest attribute is the scenery, especially from the 7th Tee. Do not forget to take your camera. The course is now beginning to blossom and if the wind is blowing it takes on the similarities of a links course. There are a few feature holes, in particular the par 3 12th; the par 4 13th into the wind and the 17th, again into the wind. You could give up golf and just admire the views.

        This msg is about 10 years overdue, but while watching The Open, I could not help but reflect on playing this course in the late 1990's.
        We played it by accident (wife wanted to visit the island).No one was around so my friend and I just went out and played, and finally found someone at the end to pay.
        It was the most beautiful course I have ever seen and I have played St Andrews, Carnoustie and Gleneagles.

    I will visit Millport Golf Course again if only to enjoy the view. I don't play golf . I have a brother who lives on the island, and a sister who has a weekend place. Great place to bike and see lots of friendly faces.

    I have visited Millport since I was born, because my family is from there. I have played the course every summer for the past five or six years. It's a short course, but the walk and the scenery are amazing. You can see right across the Kyles of Bute, and over to Arran.
    The first nine is easier than the back nine, with plenty of up and down par 4's which are fairly short. The back nine is where it starts to get interesting, with the tenth hole being a tough starting point. The fairway slope severely from left to right, and the green is an elevated one. The best hole is the twelfth, a downhill par 3 named the Doo's (Doves) Nest. You can barely see the green from the tee, and you can take from a nine iron to a 3 wood, depending on the wind. The course is always in great condition, cheap, and rarely busy.
    The clubhouse is excellent also, with superb food and drinks. Well worth the trip over the Clyde from Largs any day.
