Golf in the Highlands of Scotland is an experience to be savoured and over 150,000 golfers come north every year with their clubs in toe to do just that. With a warm, welcome that is traditional from the Highland locals, golfers will relish every moment of their stay. Indeed, the locals are more than a little knowledgeable when it comes to golf and visitors can expect pre-round tips from the locals to help them on their way. The Highlands is blessed with 46 wonderful testing courses. Some of the world's greatest links courses reside in the north of Scotland. The names of the courses themselves (Royal Dornoch, Brora, Nairn and Tain to name a few) should be enough to make you pack your clubs and set off. Many of the courses have been created by some of golf's most celebrated course architects, notably James Braid and Old Tom Morris. Certainly, a number of their courses have received makeovers or been lengthened due to the demands of the modern golfer, but the best of their work still exists today.

Established in 1889, the old course is considered to be one of the finest links courses in Scotland. A classic links designed by Old Tom Morris with deep rewetted bunkers, undulating gorse lined fairways and smooth fast greens. It is a superb test of golf with seven par fours over 400 yards.
Moray Golf club is truly one of Scotlands’s gems, a fitting tribute to the artistry of Old Tom Morris and a must play for golfers visiting this beautiful region

Nairn

Day 3
Play at Nairn
Nairn Golf Club was founded in 1875. Set on the Moray Firth coast in the Highlands of Scotland, Nairn represents traditional Scottish links golf at its very best.
Nairn golf Links has hosted numerous major amateur and professional events, including the British Amateur Championship but Nairn is probably best known for hosting the Walker Cup of 1999 where the Great Britain and Ireland team scored a rare victory over the American counterparts. The fact that Nairn was chosen as host to this prestigious event speaks volumes for the quality of the course. The Walker Cup historically played over only the finest courses, with past venues including Brookline, Cypress Point, Pebble Beach, St. Andrews and Portmarnock reinforcing this point. Certainly one of Scotland’s finest and most picturesque links courses, the par 72 layout at Nairn comprises over 100 bunkers, guarding subtle greens and gorse lined fairways, which unanimously demand accurate ball striking. The course lies directly on the coast and offers all he natural hazards one would expect, including an abundance of heather, whins and burns. Always in excellent condition, its green are renowned as being fast and true.

Brora Golf Course

Day 4
Play at Brora
Brora golf course presents all the attributes of a traditional Scottish Highland links, with a classic layout, an easy opening hole, and a short hole facing each cardinal point of the compass, you will have to adapt and manufacture according to whether the course is running fast or slow. As with all seaside links there are some very special places through out this course; the panorama of seascape and landscape from the second tee, the proximity of the sea to the 9th green and the beauty of the 13th green, one of the jewels in Braid's crown. Tarbatness, the 17th, so called because of the lighthouse which gives you the line and with the elevated tee, is one of the best driving holes in all of Scotland.
Overall the golf course is a real treat, the clubhouse is modern and comfortable, the catering excellent. But perhaps the overriding, all important feature is the atmosphere,
warm, friendly and welcoming.

Golspie Gof Course

Day 5
Play at Golspie
Set at the foot of Ben Bhraggie in Sutherland, Golspie Golf Club offers the finest setting in the Scottish Highlands for a round of golf. Only 15 miles from the famous Royal Dornoch and within a short drive of many other popular courses Golspie offers the perfect blend of links and parkland golf. Founded in 1889 and designed by the legendary James Braid. The course offers a variety of shot making challenges to the experienced golfer yet lets all members of the family play with its selection of links, parkland and woodland golf. From the 16th tee on a clear day you can see the Cairngorms, about 50 miles away which lend their name to the hole. Enjoying views of Ben Bhraggie across the Dornoch Firth, Golspie is just an hours drive from Inverness airport and set in some of Scotland's finest scenery.

Royal DornochGolf Course

Day 6
Play at Royal Dornoch

At Royal Dornoch on the Championship Course and the second links the Struie, the golfer is presented with a magical mixture in a vision of natural beauty, with respectively 18 holes each of character and challenge that can be recalled to mind long after the round is completed.
The Championship Course has an open look, each hole being separate from the others views of the sea on every hole, but there are no long walks from green to tee. The Course can be enjoyed by the average player, but offers repeated and fresh challenge to the expert.
The Struie Course on which some new holes are being developed to give it additional length has its own character. Its current shorter length is well suited to being a family holiday course, but small greens challenge the lower handicap golfer to make a good score.
