Royal Dornoch Golf Club

One of the world's great courses and only the remoteness of its location hinders it from being an Open venue. Dornoch is possibly Scottish links golf at its best, whatever the time of year. In spring, the sea of yellow gorse is truly something to behold. On a summer's evening, or in the still of an autumn afternoon when the heather is in full purple bloom, Dornoch is as close to a golfing paradise as one can get. Golf has been played here since the 17th century but it was the influence of the legendary Tom Morris in 1886 that made it the spectacle and challenge that it is today. Dornoch is located roughly 30 miles north of Inverness.

Nairn Golf Club

Founded in 1887, Nairn was made the great links challenge that it is today by Tom Morris and, subsequently, the renowned James Braid of Earlsferry. Nairn might seems simply to be a track through whins and heather, but one only has to play it once to appreciate why it is considered one of the best championship courses in Scotland. Far from a casual walk through the dunes, the course requires that you call on the whole spectrum of shots available in a golfer's repertoire. Nairn has hosted the Walker Cup and the British Amateur Championship, as well as other prestigious tournaments.

At 7,007 yards from the back tees, the course's distinctive features include "rumple", bunkers, infinity edges, generous fairways and contoured greens.

Brora is a true links course with a mixture of bent grass, beach sand and gorse; there is also a railway line that comes into play on the 10th hole.

Lossiemouth Golf Club (Old Moray Golf Club)

The township of Lossiemouth has two courses (Old & New) of high quality and of a championship standard sufficiently high to host the Northern Open. The courses are set along the wild sandy beaches of the Moray Firth and were built at a time when the Victorians considered sea bathing to be essential for good health and well-being. Lossiemouth is certainly a bracing place; the courses are hard and running with characteristic sea beech grasses that make for tight lies, requiring the deft bump-and-run approach shot of seaside golf. The Old course, originally laid out by "Old" Tom Morris, is demanding and requires resolve and thought rather than power. A deft putting touch also helps. There's also New Moray (6,005 yards, par 69) which was designed by Henry Cotton and opened in the late 1970's. Lossiemouth is located about 40 miles northeast of Inverness.

Tain Golf Club

Situated to the south of Royal Dornoch, Tain is a heathland/links course with spectacular views. Designed originally by "Old" Tom Morris as a fifteen-hole course in 1890, it was extended to eighteen holes in 1894; eleven Morris holes are still in play today. This is an easy walking course with the river meandering through three of the holes. Always presented in beautiful condition, Tain is a good test of golf, with clever bunkering and natural water hazards. Tain is located 25 miles north of Inverness.
