Machrihanish Dunes, in Kintyre, has herded a flock of sheep onto its fairways to act as 'natural lawnmowers' by munching their way through the thickest grass.
Set to swing into action today, the black Hebridean sheep are being touted as an environmentally friendly way of maintaining the course, which is built on a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
David Southworth, president and chief executive of Southworth Development, owners and managers of Machrihanish Dunes, said: "Here at Machrihanish Dunes we are very proud of our eco-friendly status and in particular the iconic characters who have helped us achieve our environmentally friendly credentials.
"By using the 'natural lawnmowers' to thin out the rough on the course we are able to help preserve several rare and protected species of orchids that grow here on this site and in few other places.
"The added benefit is visitors can enjoy the company of these unique companions as they play a round."
Machrihanish Dunes was designed by David McLay Kidd.
Last year the course was named the Association of British Travel Agents' 'Number 1 Eco Golf Course in the World'.
VisitScotland Chairman Mike Cantlay said: "These woolly wonders will have people flocking to see them in action, mowing this truly breathtaking golf course.
"They really are a wonderful endorsement for this, the Year of Natural Scotland.
"Golf in Scotland is now a £1 billion industry and our reputation as the Home of Golf will be reinforced as we host one of the biggest events on the global golf calendar at Gleneagles in 2014: the Ryder Cup.
"The green keepers there, however, will have to book our fleecy friends well in advance as I've feeling they'll be a big hit with golf courses across Scotland."
