Fairwinds Golf Course

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

Est. 1991

Fairwinds Golf Course sits just above St Lucie Airport, but the last thing you'd suspect in this generally quiet and peaceful environment is an "International" airport on your doorstep - this wonderfully linksy Jim Fazio design, benefits from a modicum of earthmounding, breaking up the innate flatness of the original terrain - in keeping with the course's links-style persona, the feel is generally quite open, with a scattering of pines, palms, oaks and pampas grass separating the good-width, nicely rippling fairways - big-hitters will enjoy this open and generally forgiving layout, provided they straighten things up in time for the more water threatened back-nine - this second nine-hole loop brings plenty of water into play, courtesy of four small lakes, alongside which several holes are routed - two of the best are the shortish risk-reward snaking par-5 13th and the seriously water-flanked, right-to-left doglegging par-4 18th - around the often large and slightly elevated greens, your bunker play and pitching out of bermuda-grassed sloping lies will be tested - not all greens however are bunker defended, with just one greenside bunker in play at the par-4 10th, and none at the ensuing par-3 11th and par-4 12th holes - the posse of sand-traps at the 13th redresses the balance - with no housing around the course, a peacefully natural environment can be enjoyed here, broken only by the occasional arrival and departures of light aircraft.

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.
