Golf Grad Otočec

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

Est. 2005

Golf Grad Otočec is located near the city of Novo Mesto, halfway between Ljubljana and Zagreb. It is set within the rolling hills and pine forests of Slovenia's Dolenjska region. Much of the layout's challenge derives from the undulating terrain over which the predominantly tree-lined holes meander. Although the course is laid out close to the River Krka, none of the holes get you down to the river's edge.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLES: the par-3 5th hole is intimidatingly played across a deep valley, while the par-5 7th cuts its way through the pine trees at the highest point of the course.

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.
