Sanctuary Cove Golf & Country Club (Palms course)

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

Est. 2011

Sanctuary Cove boasts two 18-hole championship courses: the Arnold Palmer designed Pines course, and the Palms course, designed by Ross Watson and extensively renovated and re-routed in 2009/10.

Following its renovation, the Palms course quickly re-established itself as a well-rated and always popular golf course. This tree-lined and open parkland layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

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.
