GOLF:

Nairn Golf Club

NAIRN GOLF CLUB

We highly recommend a round at Nairn Golf Club, which hosted the 1999 Walker's Cup. Founded in 1887, the course is a traditional links with the opening holes stretching out along the shoreline. At the 10th comes the inevitable about-turn and the head for home. It's said the opening holes are the toughest, but that inevitably depends on the direction of the wind. Most notably, the course is well-known throughout the U.K. for the quality of its greens. They truly are some of the finest in all of the British Isles.

Please note: Nairn has handicap restrictions of 28 for men and 36 for women.

ACCOMMODATION:

CULLODEN HOUSE (Standard Room)


SUNDAY

Travel north to Dornoch (1 hour).

Royal Dornoch

GOLF:

ROYAL DORNOCH

Located about an hour north of Inverness is the fantastic seaside links at Royal Dornoch (6,591 yards, par 70). Golf was first played at Dornoch as early as 1616, and the golf course is considered to be the third oldest in the world. Its location is remote, but that adds to its charisma and mystery. Bordered by the Dornoch Firth, Royal Dornoch will take you back in time to the beginnings of golf. The course is currently ranked #16 in the world by Golf Magazine (2011 rankings).

Please note: Royal Dornoch has handicap restrictions of 24 for men and 35 for women.

Castle Stuart Golf Links

GOLF:

CASTLE STUART GOLF LINKS

With its opening in July 2009, Castle Stuart promises to become one of the finest links course in Scotland. Castle Stuart is located six miles east of Inverness and 1 hour south of Royal Dornoch. Designed by Mark Parsinen and Gil Hanse, this championship links course overlooks the Moray Firth and well-known landmarks of Inverness and the Black Isle. The topography of the site steps back from the sea up and over an old sea cliff creating a step to an upper level slope. Because of this tiered/sloped aspect, the Moray Firth and well-known landmarks figure prominently on every hole at Castle Stuart Golf Links; for fifteen holes the sea is directly in the golfer's line of play; the other three holes offer vistas of the firth and prominent landmarks although not directly on the line of play. This course is a true Highland gem and was recently ranked #56 in the world by Golf Magazine (2011 rankings)

Cruden Bay (6,395 yards, par 70) is located about 25 miles north of Aberdeen along the northeast Scottish coast. The current layout dates back to 1899, when Old Tom Morris of St. Andrews was commissioned by the Great North of Scotland Railway to build a new course. The resulting links remains one of the Scotland's most exciting designs with dramatic dunes, unrivaled scenery and a slew of tough holes. It's always ranked among the U.K's best and currently ranks #83 in the world by Golf Magazine (2011 rankings). Awesome, awesome golf!
