12 reviews of Traigh Golf Course
We played on a gorgeous,sunny and breezy day last week. A warm welcome at the cute little white club house by the beach was followed by a hugely enjoyable couple of rounds on a great nine hole layout which works its way up and along the ridge immediately above the beach. The second, Traigh's signature hole, is a fun but demanding par five with a blind drive from a teebox on top of the ridge across a valley to the fairway on the next part of the ridge; but the real bonus is Traigh's heavenly setting. The sea views across the white beaches out to Rhum, Eigg and Skye are simply stunning. If you're within reach it's a "must visit"
Traigh is definitely a place to go out of your way to play. We played September 13, 2008 in misty and overcast conditions with no wind for our two times around the course. But we loved every minute of our time there. I wished I could take the course home with me! Holes 1-6 are seaside. Holes 7 and 8 are on the other side of a ridge out of view of the sea. Hole 9 is a beauty downhill to the sea again. Not a long course, but makes for an interesting game. Even if your game is not on, the sights will still give you a grand day.
Yep this really is a little piece of heaven. If you find yourself in one of the campsites around here for gods sake make sure your clubs are stuffed somewhere in the luggage and get around at least once. Not as easy as you might think looking at yardages if it's blowing! Facilities basic but only adds to the charm.
Great little course. Need to play four times to get to understand the layout. Hole #2 is one of the best par 5's I have ever played. No stress for golf widows as a beautiful beach lies adjacent to the course. Must do if you are anywhere within 40 miles of Mallaig.
This is the most wonderful course with scenery you only can expect in heaven. The best place I have ever been in my life. Nature at its best. And the most friendly people in europe.
Played in July 2004. The course is in a fabulous setting with a white sandy bay and touquise seas (on the day I played - not guaranted!)on one side and mountains the other side. You need to go around once (9 holes) to get your bearings for some holes. Highly recommended.
One of the great Scottish west coast 9-hole courses. Start with a fun up hill par 3 and then let the big dog eat across the ravine to an 'eagleable' par 5. Blind approach second shot to the par 4 8th takes some appreciation. My favourite hole is the last, a down hill par three to a wee green. On the first 9 loop the wind was behind and an 8-iron put me on the green. However, the wind was coming from the sea on the second 9 and a driver didn't reach.
Nice little course in beautiful surroundings. A place to come and lose yourself (and some balls) for a few hours.
this course is god, although being slightly insane, this theme being set by the first, a 140 yd par 3 up at least a 70ft hill to a green surrounded in rough. Rough that is extremely vindictive, taking at least ten of my balls. the second carries on in the same vein driving from one hill to another. this course is a test for any golfer.
Traigh is a beautiful nine-hole course, set right against the western coastline and looking out over the islands of Eigg and Rum. The golf is challenging without being too demanding, and you can play all day for 12 pounds. You need to go around a few times to get a feel for the course's hidden shots and odd approaches. The clubhouse is small and charming, befitting the simple nature of the course. All of the holes offer something to test the game, although the two short par 4's (No. 4, Jimmy's Choice, 257 yards, and No. 6, McEachen's Leap, 283 yards) stand out. I'll buy two pints of your favorite ale for anyone who pars both of them on the first go-around. Fun stuff. One caution: it's a hike to get to Traigh; the road west of Glenfinnan is quite narrow, twisty, and slow. Still, it's a lovely journey.
My Email: [email protected] Although This Course Is Only A Nine-holer, It Is Set In Absolutely Stunning Scenery In All Directions. It Is Placed On Giant Pre-historic Sand-dunes, So As You Can Imagine There's All Sorts Of Fun And Games. It's The Sort Of Course That Is Fun To Take Yer Family Round. It's Tough But Fair. It's Quite Easy For The Novice To Get Round, But The Expert Gets Lured Into Taking All Sort Of Risks (especially At High Tide !) And Has To Be Very Accurate When Taking Short-cuts. Locals Seemed Very Friendly. Club-house Is New, Clean And Tastefully Done, But Doesn't Do Meals. I Think You've Put It In The Wrong Section Though: If I Got My Geography Right Arisaig Is Much Nearer The "highlands Of Scotland" Yellow '?' Mark Than The "central Highlands" One On Your Map, And I Had Trouble Finding It On Your Web-pages !
Super Fun. Don't Travel A 100 Miles To Play But If You Are Anywhere The Area Please Play. Worth It For The Scenery Alone.
