Golf courses at Royal Dornoch Golf Club
Founded in 1886 by Old Tom Morris, the Championship Course at Royal Dornoch is the flagship golf course in the North of Scotland and is one of the world’s greatest links, regularly listed near the top end of worldwide golf course rankings. The Dornoch Firth and its beautiful white beaches are accompanied by a narrow strip of dune land rising on two levels, which provide just enough room for parallel fairways and a spectacular course that is one of the most natural you will find anywhere.
An easier test than its more renowned counterpart but just as beautiful, the Struie Course is a fun test of golf set in the beautiful home of golf. The par-69 course plays a short 5438 yards but with quick greens and fast undulating fairways, the course requires tactical positioning and good tee shots to ensure a good round.
