The Bluffs - Ho Tram Strip

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 2014

The Bluffs - Ho Tram Strip: this top-rated seaside links course is laid out in a natural duneland area between the sea's edge (a couple of hundred yards away) and a large area of wooded hinterland. Alongside The Bluffs course, sits the Grand Ho Tram Strip hotel and casino resort.

Facing out onto the South China Sea, and almost beachside, Greg Norman's pure links design has won many plaudits. The ever-present rugged sandhills stand in sharp contrast to the green flowing lines of this rolling and rollicking layout.

True to great links golf, water plays very little part in proceedings, apart from the proximity of a vast body of the briny to look at. Thankfully, there's also very little if any real estate to look at. What most certainly makes its presence felt are exposed sand dunes, square-cut tee-boxes, threatening bunkers and a fabulous collection of par-3 holes.

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.

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.
