Lyman Orchards Golf Club (Jones course)

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Lyman Orchards Golf Club is home to two championship layouts, the Player and Jones courses. Contrary to some opinion, we would give the edge to the Player course in terms of golfing interest and challenge. However, the Robert Trent Jones Sr course is also a generally well-regarded golf course, which combines a good layout with several attractive holes and features. This tree-lined and open parkland layout will test most facets of your game, and should provide a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges. Worth visiting 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.
