Palmer Colonial Golf Course

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1992

Palmer Colonial (formerly known as Paradise Springs Golf Course) is a generally well-regarded layout, which includes several attractive holes and features. This tree-lined and open parkland course will test most facets of your game, and should provide a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges.

This former dairy farm, once covered in grassland, weeds and bush, was transformed into a beautifully groomed championship golf course in the early-1990s. The 6,424 metre parkland layout, meanders its way through 39 hectares of towering eucalyptus, picturesque lakes and serene waterways. Flowering native and exotic trees and plants abound, while ornate bridges cross watercourses in which lilies jostle for space.

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.
