Longbow Golf Club

Unrated: Well regarded course not yet visited by the Where2Golf team.

Est. 1997

Longbow Golf Club: This classic desert golf course, comprising two nine-hole loops, is laid out on relatively flat terrain. The feel here is distinctly open, with wide swathes of sand separating the fairways, and few trees either in play or in view.

Longbow is not part of a residential development, so the course retains a very natural feel, with pleasant mountain views beyond the course. The par-4 13th and 15th are the only two holes where water seriously threatens; keeping to the lush green fairways and out of the desert and good-quality bunkering will be your main objective in building a good score.

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.
