4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1999

Golfsociëteit De Lage Vuursche: In a wonderfully wooded part of the Netherlands, the Golf Society of Lage Vuursche has opted for a very open and distinctly American style golf course. Ever-present water hazards, acres of bunkering, significant earth-mounding and often vast, sloping greens have all been expertly and collaboratively designed by two of America's best golf course architects - Kyle Phillips and Robert Trent Jones Jr.

The layout's degree of playing difficulty is high, which ensures all golfers are continually challenged. Plenty of fairway hugging water hazards and an abundance of bunkering creates several tight drives, while also placing a premium on accurate approach work. As pockets of recent tree planting and overall course conditions continue to mature, Lage Vuursche will consolidate its already high reputation as one of the Netherland's best "new" courses.

For a club that charges one of the highest green fees in the country, you should expect something very special and maintenance standards to be exceptional. There is no doubt the modern and challenging layout should be applauded, especially given the flatness of the original terrain.

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.
