Kingsmill Resort (Plantation course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1985

The Kingsmill Resort is home to three 18-hole championship golf courses: the River and Plantation courses, and the private member-only Woods course. The River course is generally the highest ranked, and is kept good company at the resort centre by the also well-rated and pleasantly testing Plantation layout.

The Plantation course is a tree-lined parkland layout that should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area. At this Stay&Play venue, the on-site accommodations are located close to the golf facilities.

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.
