Royal Dornoch Golf Club
It was in 1877 that the Dornoch Golf Club was founded.
It was the successor of the Sutherland Golfing Society
whose members played at Dornoch and Golspie. The
course was then only 9 holes long. But changes were in
store. The great Tom Morris came up from St Andrews
and laid out "9 proper golf holes." Three years later
another 9 holes were added and the fame of the
Dornoch course started to spread, even across the
Atlantic to America.

Tain Golf Club
 Overlooking the Dornoch Firth, Tain arguably offers one
of the best settings imaginable in the highlands for a
round of golf. With sea on one side and the backdrop of
the mountains behind, every day brings a different
aspect to this challenging and beautiful course.

Inverness Golf Club
Inverness Golf Club was formed on Tuesday 13
November 1883 at a meeting of gentlemen interested in
the formation of a golf club, held in the Caledonian
Hotel, Inverness. The entry fee was set at five shillings
which included the year's subscription. In the formative
years Lord Lovat granted the privilege of Muir of Ord for
the purpose of playing the game of golf and the
inaugural game was played there on Saturday 17
November 1885.

Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club
At just 6000 yards the terrain is mildly undulating and
ideal for the holiday and senior golfer. The first eight
holes follow the shore with beach or sea awaiting a
hooked tee shot, and with whins bordering most of the
fairways, accuracy rather than length is the preferred
option. There follows an inner loop of holes from the
9th, to the 15th, with a final inner circle comprising of 16
to 18.

Nairn Golf Club
This Traditional Scottish Golf Links Course was created
on the shores of the Moray Firth from a Highland
wilderness of whins and heather, and tests the talents
of professional and amateur alike. Founded in 1887, Old
Tom Morris stretched the course to its present
boundaries in 1890. His handiwork was expanded and
refined by five times Open champion James Braid on
visits in 1909, 1921 and 1926, since when it has been
lengthened but little altered.

recent years. Some of these events include the Scottish
Ladies Close Amateur Championship, Scottish Stroke

Brora Golf Club
The golf club in Brora was established in 1891. In 1923
James Braid, five times 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 passing of time and
remains a fair and challenging test of a true traditional
links course.
