Traigh Golf Course

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1900

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.

The course is based on a line of grassy hills, with the springy turf of a true golf links. Heading uphill from what is clearly not one of the world's largest golf clubhouses, the nine-hole layout weaves its way around gorse-trimmed undulating terrain. All the while you'll enjoy vistas out onto sandy bays and coves, with the Isle of Skye and the "Small Isles (Rùm, Muck and Eigg) clear to see in the distance.

Traigh is a subtle shot-makers good players will need to work for their scores, while high handicappers are also given a fair chance. In short, the layout offers something for all golfers ... with unforgettable views into the bargain.
