Royal Dornoch Golf Club - Championship Course Golf Packages
Par 70, yardage 6,682. Formed as a Club in 1877 with the course laid out in 1886 by Old Tom Morris, Royal Dornoch is considered one of the finest links courses in the world. The course is spellbinding and golfers from all over the world make the trip to the incredibly scenic Scottish Highlands to play the course annually featured top-ten course in the world by Golf Digest. The natural setting for Royal Dornoch among the high dunes and ridges that line the white sandy beaches of Dornoch Firth, provides the setting often referred to as wild and isolated. The dune land rises in two distinctive levels, providing narrow strips of land providing just enough room for parallel fairways. Holes 1-8 follow the upper ridge "out" and holes 9-18 play in opposite direction "in" and are bounded, (except holes 17 and 18), on the left by the sand beaches of the Firth. Royal Dornock is not a long course compared to modern layouts but the plateau greens originally created by Old Tom Morris and the soul of the course, plus wind will demand steady play by all golfers. Royal Dornoch is a favorite of former Open Champion Tom Watson who said: "It was the most fun I've had playing golf in my whole life". Maximum handicap: 24 men, 30 women.
Castle Stuart Golf Links Golf Packages
Castle Stuart Golf Links championship course overlooks the pristine Moray Firth and local well-known landmarks that are synonymous with Inverness and the Black Isle - Kessock Bridge, Chanonry Lighthouse and the course namesake - historic Castle Stuart. The castle, visible behind the 4th green, was completed in 1625 before falling into ruin and now renovated. The castle's spire serves as the logo for Castle Stuart Golf Links. The Club's goal is to add to the rich fabric of golf in the Scottish Highlands - a fabric made rich by historic Royal Dornoch, Nairn, Brora and other fine Scottish golf clubs. The course enjoys a setting and toppgraphy that combine to make the golf experience visually memorable. Surrounding the golfer is a rugged, natural landscape comprised of vast expanses of gorse, broom, heather and sea marram, that lines the course incredible vistas. Castle Stuart's manicured playing surfaces along the rugged natural beauty reflects back to a simpler era of golf - the "transitional period" 1890-1935. Wayward shotes and thin wispy fescue and pockets of bare sand where balls are easily found and recoveries manageble. The course winds over two tiers of land overlooking the Firth. The lower holes play directly along the Firth coastline and water laps at the edge of tee boxes and fairways. The upper tier provides stunning views as the course changes directions frequently. The fairways are relatively wide, but there is always an optimal side of the fairway from which to approach the greens. The greens are generally large and sloping, plus well-guarded by more open sandy areas than deep sod-walled bunkers, along with pockets of natural vegetation.
Nairn Golf Club Golf Packages
Par 72, yardage 6,721. One of the finest, best-respected championship links in Scotland, Nairn is capable of testing the most gifted of players. It has hosted a number of high-profile national tournaments including the Scottish Amateur Championships and the Walker Cup in 1999. Nairn boasts fast, hard-to-read greens and thick links gorse which conspire to provide you with one of the toughest challenges you're ever likely to face. Founded in 1887, the course has been extended and modified by Old Tom Morris, James Braid and Archie Simpson. Incidentally, the town of Nairn is a wonderful base for golfers with great hotels, bars and restaurants. Maximum handicap: 24 men, 30 women.
Brora Golf Club Golf Packages
Par 69, yardage 6,110. The golf club in Brora was established in 1891. In 1923, James Braid, five time Open Champion and prolific designer of golf courses, the most famous of which is Gleneagles, visited the course and redesigned the 18-hole layout which has stood the passage of time and remains a fair and challenging test of a true traditional links course. Brora represents all the attributes of a traditional Scottish links, with a classic layout, an easy opening hole, and a short hole facing each cardinal point of the compass. You will have to adapt and manufacture according to whether the course is running fast or slow.
