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

Bro-Bålsta Golfklubb (Championship course): Most of this very well presented golf course occupies undulating terrain in an attractive and natural forested setting, giving the opportunity for course architect Peter Nordwall to test all facets of your game. From the many elevated tee-boxes it is important to find the right spot to provide a good line into the often large and undulating greens - to score well good course management is essential. The front nine, in our opinion, has the most attractive holes with some of the back-nine going into a slightly more open and rural landscape. Overall, all the holes are well-designed and some, like the par-5 1st or the par-5 6th are glorious to the eye. An excellent golf course, within a quiet woodland setting - no wonder the young Sorenstam's were inspired to achieve greatness.

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.
