Stornoway Golf Club was founded in 1890 on the present day site of the Stornoway Airport. It was resited to its current location within the grounds of the Lews Castle in 1947 with the aid of compensation received from the Air Ministry who had requisitioned the course in 1939.

Substantial investment in the last few years have led to on-course improvements - including a new drainage system - and a modernised clubhouse. Facilities include a golf shop with club and trolley hire, practice nets, chipping/bunker/putting practice area, putting green, locker rooms, and a licensed bar with light snacks.

Stornoway Golf Club is also the host of the Western Isles Open Amateur Championships for Men, Ladies and Juniors. These are held as part of the Lewis Golf Week every July. Stornoway has always enjoyed a reputation for having a friendly and sociable golf club, and visitors are assured of a warm welcome.

    This little gem on the Island of Lewis is a real test for any golfer. The views across the Minch to mainland Scotland are superb but it's better to concentrate on your game rather than the scenery. Some of the holes are wicked - and you get a taste of how difficult the course is with a tricky dog leg at the first. From then on you have to be on your guard and if you can match your club handicap you have done well. Sadly the course is not open on Sundays - on religious grounds - but the fact that you could still play as late as 11pm in June and July more than compensates for that! The friendly clubhouse is very inviting and guests are always welcome.
