Crooked Stick Golf Club is home to a championship golf course that ranks with some of the best in Indiana. This tree-lined and open parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. However, this is a private course generally playable only by members and their guests.
Crooked Stick is a private club. Guests may only play if hosted by a member.
Destined to be called The Golf Club of Indianapolis, the naming of the club took an interesting twist. The story goes that as Pete Dye and Bill Wick, one of the original Directors, were surveying the uncompleted back nine, Dye picked up a gnarled stick and swung it at some stones. This provided the inspiration for the name Crooked Stick Golf Club, which was ratified by the members in April 1965.
Crooked Stick has hosted many top level tournaments, including major championships and a Solheim Cup (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Crooked Stick).

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.
