Brora

Perhaps I was a little biased by the fantastic sunny and calm day or by far the best score I ever shot on a links course, but for me Brora is the epitome of enjoyable golf. There's no blend quite like it when it comes to scenery, quality, authenticity and playability. It's a holiday course, yet will never get boring. It's covered with grazing sheep and cattle, yet it is k…

Reay

Reay is the most northernly 18 hole links on the British mainland and the design is attributed to James Braid. It plays 5831 yds from the men's tees to a par of 69, so it's fairly short which is not unusual for an "old" Scottish links. It had rained through the night and the forecast predicted even more rain for our day at Reay, but out of nowhere it turned into a wonderf…

Brora

One of the hidden courses in the highlands north of Inverness. Play there when you are going to Dornoch. You won’t be disappointed at all.

Struie Course

Royal Dornoch is one of my favorite courses in the world. Go north in Scotland in April and May and you will find the course in beautiful yellow with the horse in flowers, Hole 5 and 6 are my favorites.

Fortrose & Rosemarkie

Golfplatz welcher auf einer Landzunge gelegen ist, am besten vor oder nach der Runde einmal hoch fahren und den Blick genießen. Meiner Meinung nach ganz netter Links Platz nun kein Highlight aber durch die Lage auf jeden Fall gut zu spielen. Natürlich warten einige Ginsterbüsche auf euch und diese verschlingen die Bälle sehr gerne. Kann auch gut mit einer Whiskey Tour kom…

Play golf in Highland

Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club - founded in 1793 - is the oldest golf club in Highland and is confirmed to be the 15th oldest golf club in the world. Highland is home to many well-known golf clubs and is definitely worth the trip when planning a golf break. Green fee prices are still acceptable and the courses and views are just outstanding. When planning a golf break to Highland in Scotland, make sure to play the following Highland golf courses: Castle Stuart (a relatively new golf club, founded in 2009), Royal Dornoch Golf Club (both courses are great), Brora Golf Club and Nairn Golf Club. But, this area has many hidden gems, which you definitely should pay a visit like Tain Golf Club, Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club and Durness Golf Club. The area above Inverness - around the village of Dornoch - would make a perfect location to stay. But, Inverness itself would also be a great starting point. If you love links golf, tranquillity and history then this is the place to go. A holiday to the Highland area will bring you fantastic golf courses, majestic mountains, mysterious lochs and you might be able to witness dolphins frolicking off the Moray Coast. If you like hiking, then head out to Britain's highest peak, Ben Nevis. Highland can be reached via the international airport of Glasgow and Edinburgh. But, Inverness also has an international airport. Inverness Airport is located some 7 miles east of Inverness and 21 miles from Loch Ness. Inverness Airport offers a range of daily flights to and from a number of key destinations including; London (Heathrow, Gatwick & Luton), Amsterdam (Schiphol), Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham, Dublin, and Belfast.
