RTJ Golf Trail: Cambrian Ridge Golf Course

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1992

RTJ Golf Trail - Cambrian Ridge Golf Course: If you had to choose one Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail course to represent and define all the others, then Cambrian Ridge might well be your choice. Within this 27-hole layout the outstanding Sherling and Canyon nines contain many of the characteristics frequently found on the Trail: a splendidly natural woodland and lakeside domain, lots of undulating ridges and valleys, all of which is utilised to superb effect to provide a raft of memorable, challenging and scenic golf holes. Many of them climb the slopes that lead away from the lake, only to come back down again to wonderful lake-hugging, roller-coaster greens, not only protected by water, but by an array of substantive bunkering (complete with distinctive red-coloured sand).

Among many wonderfully elevated tee-boxes, the crow's-nest back-tee on the Sherling's par-4 5th is fabulous. The final holes on the Sherling and Canyon, are both uphill and played in more open terrain, either side of a deep ravine strewn with ochre boulders; a large double green awaits at the top of the climb. The Loblolly nine mirrors the top-quality presentation of the other two, although with a touch less drama and panache, and without opening up such excellent lakeside holes and views. With no houses, roads or other reminders of the real world in view, your full concentration can be given to this immensely enjoyable, testing and natural layout.

Did you know?

Many regard the holes of the Sherling nine, played alongside Sherling Lake, as some of the best golf holes on the entire Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. The Canyon nine is carved from former hunting grounds, where deer blinds remain nailed to the hardwood. The Loblolly nine takes its name from tree of that name, a pine with long slender needles, native to the south-eastern U.S. >> ABOUT THE RTJ TRAIL (See Where2Golf.com entry for Silver Lakes - Did You Know section).

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.
