Taynuilt Golf Club is a challenging 9-hole parkland course which was founded in 1987. The Course is surrounded by majestic scenery located close to the base of Ben Cruachan and with stunning views up Loch Etive. The village of Taynuilt is situated on the A85, approximately a 2 hour drive from Glasgow and 12 miles from Oban, "The Gateway to the Isles". see location map
Please note the course improvement programme for this year has meant the installation of an open drainage ditch across the 2nd fairway. This is a new hazard which does not have a 'free drop'. Also the out of bounds markers have been relocated on the 8th and 9th fairways so caution required!

And the winners of the Trevor Allen Texas Scramble were… the midges! I don’t think any group managed to avoid them at some point during their round.
Winners of midge management were the Curries and Andy, who also won the longest drive. Anne, Mark and Richard were a very close second, and the team from Seil – Mary (who also won nearest the pin), Donna and Robbie – were one shot off the lead in third.
Ladies’ longest drive was Wilma, and gents’ nearest the pin was Kevin Mills. Full results can be found here.
The next fixture at Taynuilt is the Senior’s Open this Wednesday, please ring if you haven’t already entered. If you’re too young for that then why not consider playing in the Isle of Seil’s inaugural Open, next Sunday? Contact details are on the previous post.
