Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club

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

Est. 2007

Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club is home to a well-rated and always popular golf course. The tree-lined and open parkland layout offers many pleasant views as it meanders through hardwood forests, with split fairways, double greens and elevation changes along the way, and a spectacular waterfall to finish.

The eighteen hole layout begins atop a small knoll with panoramic views. It ends with a risk-reward par-4 fronted by Crooked Run Creek and framed by a tumbling 60-foot waterfall just behind the 18th green. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

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.

Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
