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

Fulford Golf Club: Although not as renowned as some of the moorland courses located 20 miles away just north of Leeds, Fulford nonetheless provides a very satisfying golf outing in pleasant rural surroundings.

Laid out over flattish terrain, there are more than a few occasions when the course takes on the character of the Alister MacKenzie designed heathland courses around Leeds. In contrast, there are also several holes giving a more wooded parkland feel, especially with a fine array of birch, pine and oak lining some fairways.

The first five and last five holes on this out-and-back layout are located on the northside of the A64 (York ring road), the middle eight on the south side. Apart from a footbridge that gets you over the road, the course is in all respects a seamless continuation of excellent quality holes. The road itself will not disturb or interefere with your round one jot. A special mention must be made of Fulford's top quality greens, as good as you'll find among the many great courses in the north of England.

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.
