Bora is a magnificent layout with beautiful surroundings. What other golf course give you such great views that you can get lost in nature. Playing to your handicap will be a real achievement here because the greens are tough to hit and hard to read. The 9th a 162 yard par three is called the Sea Hole- a favorite of many. A very traditional layout with the opening hole hugging the sea line.

The World’s Greatest Golf Course

The 7,400 yard, par 72 championship golf course is designed by renowned golf course architect, Dr. Martin Hawtree, and follows a classical pattern of two out-and-back loops of nine holes. All 18 holes thread their way engagingly through The Great Dunes of Scotland; rising to find panoramic views of the North Sea and dramatic coastline, and plunging into secluded valleys rich with native vegetation.

Each hole has six separate tees catering for all levels of golfer. The bunkers are placed to challenge the stronger player and not unduly punish the weaker golfer. All bunkers are turf-revetted in traditional style to combat wind, erosion and sand-blow.

Royal Aberdeen is the sixth oldest golf course in the world. While the front nine holes are excellent, the back nine holes are harder. They are more exposed to the elements, and consequently bear the full brunt of the wind.

The 2005 Senior Open was help at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club, and in 2014 The Scottish Open was played here.

This is an excellent traditional links course.

Cruden Bay Golf Club

Championship Course

One of the many courses built in the great railways expansion era at the end of the 19th century; Cruden Bay is a magnificent testimony to the quality of links golf in the north of Scotland. Towering sand dunes at the north end of the course dominate the play early in the round and, as the course winds its way south a narrow strip of land between the sea cliff and the North Sea provides a remarkable run of holes from the 13th to 16th.

 

Beautiful swathes of fairway amid the giant sand dunes, combined with excellent firm greens offer ‘a unique and unforgettable experience’. It is no surprise that Cruden Bay is one of the most highly rated golf courses in the world.

A tale of two families

Aberdeenshire is graced by many historic castles, but Tolquhon is one of the most picturesque. It served as a noble residence for some 300 years. The oldest part is the stump of an early 15th-century tower house, probably built by one of the Prestons of Formartine, who once held the barony. However, the castle visitors can see today was built by Sir William Forbes, 7th Lord of Tolquhon. In 1584, he instigated a comprehensive rebuilding programme which, when completed six years later, gave to William and his spouse, Elizabeth, a house that was amongst the finest of its day.

Stay at Meldrum House hotel.

Narin Golf Club ttp://www.nairngolfclub.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Nairn-4th-Green.jpg

The Championship Course

What delights the visitor and member alike is the Scottish-ness of the links.  Other than in a strong westerly, it leads you in gently before demanding accurate driving and precision second shots.  Gorse is a hazard.  The par 4 holes tease and confound and all four short holes are cunningly angled, with the 4th a little gem and the 14th simply spectacular.  As three of the par 5 holes are over 530 yards long, it is a test for all.  Yet, even more challenging than the humps and hollows that lurk in the fairways, is the trickery of the greens.  Eighty years ago, having played the Championship Course, James Braid commented on their quality – “The texture of the turf and the character of the greens is unrivalled”.

Castle Stuart Golf

Scotland, the home of golf. History and diversity make Scottish golf courses famous throughout the world. As Turnberry is to Ayrshire and Gleneagles is to Perthshire, Castle Stuart has been conceived to be for the Highlands – a beacon reaching out to golfers throughout the world. The centrepiece for this Scottish

destination golf resort is Castle Stuart Golf Links, a championship links course overlooking the Moray Firth and well-known landmarks that are synonymous with Inverness and the Black Isle – Kessock Bridge and Chanonry Lighthouse perhaps the most notable. The resort will include a bespoke Golf Hotel, a small luxury Hotel & Spa, ‘resort-ownership’ Lodges & Apartments, plus a second Seaside Course. Castle Stuart’s goal is to add to the rich fabric of golf in the Scottish Highlands – a fabric made rich by Royal Dornoch, Nairn, Brora, and many other fine Scottish golf clubs.

 

Redgarth

The Redgarth ( The Red House In The Garden)  was built as a house in 1928 by a local baker called John Gordon. Occupation followed by an excise man Mr Robertson, who also catered for bed and breakfast before selling the house to the Earl of Winchilsea. Previous ownership is detailed below and although Mr Paterson changed the use to what was then “The Redgarth Cocktail Bar” and many upgrades have taken place, the building remains essentially as it did when it was first built.

1961 – 1980 Bill Paterson (Grocer) – First drinks licence
1980-1987 Duncan Porter (Grocer) food introduced in Jan 1982 and kitchen and dining area added
1987-1990 William Clark (Haulier)
1990- Stuart Singer (Cask Conditioned Ale introduced and became an inn in 1994)

Royal Dornoch Golf Club is spellbinding and many golfers from all over the world make the pilgrimage to this natural links at some point in their lives.

It’s the timeless setting that makes Royal Dornoch such a pleasing place to play golf. It’s wild, isolated and, at the same time, absolutely beautiful; there’s the blaze of colour in early summer when the gorse is in flower. The pure white sandy beach divides the links from the Dornoch Firth and it all feels very humbling.

Ostensibly the course itself is pretty straightforward: it’s an out-and-back layout. Many of the greens, though, are built on natural raised plateaus making approach play especially challenging. Most people know about Royal Dornoch and many have this course on their must-play list.
