High Post Golf Club: From first to last, you'll be provided with excellent views over Salisbury Plain, on a very enjoyable downland course. The chalk soil ensures excellent drainage and lovely springy turf on the fairways. Small trees and bushes line many of the fairways, but never too tightly. On most of the holes, especially around the greens, are nicely sculpted small mounds, sand bunkers and superb grass hollows, giving great definition to the course - some modern course designers could learn a lot from a good look at the High Post course. The only "downside" to a course on such an exposed site - you guessed it, the wind !

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.
Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges.
