Welcome to Fort William Golf Club where visitors are always welcome, so why not come along and play golf in Scotland’s mountain splendour. (£10 / 9 holes – £20 / 18 holes)
“Play the ball as it lies, play the course as you find it, and if you cannot do either, do what is fair. But to do what is fair, you need to know the Rules of Golf.”
Fort William Golf Club, established in 1976, is an 18 hole course nestled between the mountains and the sea on the north side of Fort William and at the base of Ben Nevis (Britain’s highest mountain).
The Course measures 6217 yards off the white tees, 5464 yards off the yellow tees and 4850 yards off the Ladies tees.
Come along and experience golf in breath taking mountain scenery. Our course offers challenges for all levels of player, why not test your skills at one of our “Opens”?
(See our competitions page for further details)
To avoid disappointment, please pre-book your tee time, thanks.
Club and trolley hire are available, and we have a modest selection of golfing necessities (tees, balls, gloves, etc.) for sale from the Bar.
All are welcome and our books are currently open for membership, contact us for further details or download a membership application here.

WHS Handicap Terms Explained
Handicap Index (HI)
Your expected score against the Course Rating on an average golf course (i.e., one rated at 113 slope). This based on an average of the best 8 rounds out of your last 20 recorded scores.
Course Handicap (CH)
Your Handicap Index multiplied by Slope Rating divided by 113 (this adjusts your Handicap Index to allow for the “difficulty” of the course you are playing). This is the figure that the player must display on their card under the rules of golf for it to be legal.
Playing Handicap (PH)
Course Handicap x Handicap Allowance (this adjusts your Course Handicap to allow for the format of the golf being played). In stroke play this is the Committee’s responsibility under the rules of golf – not the Player’s.
When submitting a score using the Scottish Golf App or the Tablet in the Club all of the above is calculated for you.
All you must do is confirm your handicap when asked.
