Wolf Creek Golf Resort (The Links course)

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

Est. 1984

The Wolf Creek Golf Resort offers two 18-hole championship courses, and can also accommodate visitors onsite. With both layouts designed by Rod Whitman, the wonderful Old course presents a challenging mix of open, linksy holes and others that are more tree-lined. It is kept company by the longer, but often more forgiving Links course.

The Links course is a generally well-regarded layout, which includes several attractive holes and features. This inland links-style course will test most facets of your game, and should provide a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges. Worth visiting if you are in the area. At this Stay&Play facility, you can rise from your bed in the morning and head straight for the first tee.

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.
