St Michael's Golf Club

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

Est. 1938

St Michael's Golf Club: Small trees and bushes line the fairways on the first few holes and the distinctly undulating terrain may have you thinking this will be a hilly, tree-lined experience. Not so. At the 6th hole you emerge into a very linksy and flatter environment, with the open terrain allowing many glorious views onto the Pacific Ocean and the wonderful cliffs that make up this coastline. The rest of the course seems to alternate between this open, links environment, while at other holes the small trees and bushes return. The best run of holes starts with the sharply dog-legging par-4 11th (a blind drive makes it tough the first time you play it), then onto the beautifully bunkered par-3 12th, followed by the 13th, a short par-5 that starts from an elevated tee, squeezes through a relatively tight fairway, and finishes at a green just above the wave pounded rocks. The overall quality of upkeep, especially on and around the greens, is generally good, although beyond the fairways the condition can become a tad rustic. Two other golf courses are clearly in view from St Michael's, New South Wales from a couple of the early holes, and The Coast GC from several later holes. All in all, St Michael's is a very natural and wonderfully scenic course - well worth a visit.

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.
