The Carnegie Links represents all that is great about Scottish golf, from the friendly intimate and warm Golf House to its fine traditional links course. Great care has been taken to ensure that the experience of playing the Carnegie Links is authentic to the era of Andrew Carnegie. The course, designed by renowned links specialists Donald Steele and Tom Mackenzie, offers the golfer a rare opportunity to play a links course that remains firm and fast.
It requires a broad repertoire of shots, not simply the modern style of aerial bombardment golf, and demands that any golfer regardless of standard, is rewarded for thoughtful and skilful play, rather than for power. At 6,671 yards from the back tees, the course is not long by modern standards, but in a wind, it will test even the mightiest. Its varied layout takes the golfer past exceptionally rare wildlife habitats that have been carefully retained and protected. With the sea on three sides and the hills of Sutherland and Ross-shire all around, this course must have one of the finest settings in the world of golf.
The Carnegie Links is for members only. However, The Carnegie Links Experience is available to one 4-ball at 9am, Monday to Friday between early-June and late-September.

For most of us a visit will provide a glimpse into another world, certainly away from the course. The term ‘millionaire’s golf’ will never be more prevalent than at Skibo.
The golf course itself can be easily split into t…
