Traigh Golf Course is situated in a unique site in one of the most beautiful parts of the West Highlands of Scotland. The word Traigh (pronounced 'Try' ) means beach in Gaelic, and the course lies beside sandy beaches and rocky islets, with marvellous views to the islands of Eigg and Rhum, and to the Cuillins of Skye. A recent newspaper article called it 'probably the most beautifully sited nine-hole golf course in the world'.
Clubhouse has small pro-shop and snack br catering. Clubs available for hire. The whole district is a paradise for bird watching, walking and exploring. Ferries run to neighbouring islands.
West Highlands of Scotland. Two miles north of Arisaig and six miles from Mallaig.

|Course Name: Traigh Holes: 9 Yardage: 2405 SSS: 65|
|The feature of the course is a line of grassy hills, originally sand dunes, which rise some 70 feet, and the first hole demands a cunning tee shot to the top. At the second, a long drive is needed, to get from one summit to the next. The third drops down towards the beach, while the fourth passes between two gorse covered hills to a beautifully positioned green. The fifth hole crosses a broad burn - broader still at high tide - and the sixth comes back across the burn in a tricky dogleg par four. The seventh is a long par five from the medal tee, while the eighth climbs back to the top of the hill, and the glorious view, and the ninth drops down again to the beach and the clubhouse.
