The Course at Yale

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

Est. 1926

The Course at Yale, designed by the inimitable Charles Blair Macdonald (the Father of American Golf Course Architecture), is ranked in the highest echelon of collegiate courses in America. This wonderfully rugged, tree-lined and open parkland course is another wonderful example of Macdonald's ability to get the best from a given piece of terrain. In this case a wonderfully undulating, rocky, woodland environment. skill in getting the best designed 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. When it comes to collegiate golf courses, Yale has few peers. Perhaps the Oklahoma State course (Karsten Creek) and the Stanford University layout.

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.
