Le Meilleur Horizons Golf Resort

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1992

Two very well designed 9-hole loops, out-and-back from the resort centre, take you into some surprisingly natural habitats and ensure this is one of the best golf locations in the Port Stephens area. Excellent earth mounding along the fairways, impressive and highly effective bunkering and top quality greenkeeping all contribute to this US-style resort layout. However, where things differ from many a US-style resort course, is the policy of keeping the limited resort real estate at a discreet distance from the golf, and in retaining some lovely areas of swamp and wetlands, around which both of the flattish nines wander. Water plays its part on 5 or 6 holes, but with an absence of penal rough and a tree-line on many holes giving sufficient width to drive the ball (with some margin of error), you should experience a highly pleasurable round of golf in a pleasantly natural setting.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
