.......is around a 10 minute drive north from Otterburn, and is probably the best known course on Arran. It is a very charming and unique 12 hole links course and is  old fashioned in terms of having lots of blind shots. There are some great holes, including the par 3  3rd called the Crows Nest and the 7th, which is  called the Himalayas.

There are 2 all weather tennis courts which you can play on.  Also, there is an all weather bowling green and a putting green located in front of the clubhouse, which are both open to the public. Equipment for all these can be hired from the golf course.

The course at Corriecravie was in the 1948 Golfers Handbook  -  the club is shown as Corriecravie  & Sliddery G. C.  It had a mebership of 41 and the Secretary was Peter Craig of Corriecravie. The course was 9 holes and there was no Sunday play. In the 1949 Handbook there is no mention of the Club and as each Handbook comes out at the start of each year we must assume it folded in 1948.
