Rio Mar Country Club (Ocean course)

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

Est. 1975

Rio Mar Country Club is home to two top-quality championship courses. The much admired George & Tom Fazio designed Ocean course opened for play in 1975. It was followed 22 years later by the also acclaimed River course, designed by Greg Norman.

The Ocean course is a well-rated and always popular layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course 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. 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.
