The Prairie Club (Pines course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2010

The Prairie Club is home to two top-quality 18-hole championship layouts, the Tom Lehman designed Dunes course, and the Pines course designed by Graham Marsh.

Like its sibling, the Pines course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Nebraska. This tree-lined & open prairie-style course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.

Stay&Play: onsite accommodation is available in The Lodge at Prairie Club (see Where2Stay section below).

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.
