The International Golf Club & Resort (Pines course)

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1901

The International Golf Club & Resort is home to two championship layouts, the Tom Fazio-designed Oaks course and the private Pines course. The Pines is a well-rated layout, which vies for the title of America's longest golf course, weighing in at a brutal 8,325 yards from the tips.

This tree-lined and open parkland layout contains many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy, with some of the longest holes you'll have ever played. However, the Pines layout is a private course, generally playable only by members and their guests. The resort's Oaks course is open for resort-guest and public play.

Stay&Play at The International: onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

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.
