The Traigh Golf Course (9
holes) is situated between Morar and Arisaig. Golf has been played at Traigh
since about 1900, but the old layout was much too small, and the course was
enlarged and greatly improved between 1993 and 1995. It was redesigned by the
well-known Scottish golf architect, Mr. John Salvesen.
Cunningly using the natural contours of the hills that rise up from the beach,
he has created "a
fair challenge to all levels of golfer – but a course that is great fun to play
on, so that one wants to play it again"
