About the Course
The course is based on a line of grassy hills, with the springy turf of a true links course. It’s a nine-hole course, par 68, SSS 65.
Traigh is a subtle golf course that rewards accurate shotmaking. Good players are made to work for their scores, and yet high handicappers are given every chance. In short, Traigh offers something for everyone.
Traigh presents the golfer with all the traditional challenges of a classic seaside links.
Traigh Golf Course is seven miles south of Mallaig on the A830, the famous Road to the Isles. The word Traigh (pronounced 'try') means 'beach' in Gaelic, and a series of sandy beaches run alongside the course, with stunning views to the Hebridean islands of Muck, Eigg and Rum, and the Black and Red Cuillins of Skye. From Mallaig there is a ferry to Skye. Maps
