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

Powfoot Golf Club: Glorious views across the Solway Firth from most parts of the course and a very respectable links layout, draws many visiting golfers to sample the undoubted pleasures of golfing at Powfoot. You will not see the towering sand dunes associated with many of Scotland's better known links courses, but there is gorse in plentiful supply - underlining Powfoot's seaside links credentials, and keeping you on the straight and narrow on several tee shots. The course, however, is not overly punishing, unless shots are really wayward. The usually excellent greens will thoroughly test your putting skills, with their many slopes and borrows. One of Scotland's lesser known seaside delights.

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.
