Royal Dornoch Golf Club provides a timeless setting and is host to the Championship Course as well as the Struie Course. The club was formed in 1877 and has since developed a great reputation across the golfing world.

The wild and isolated setting is one that few courses can boast.

The relaxed and informal nature of the club makes guests feel at ease instantly, something that is rare among such historic golf clubs.
Golf courses at Royal Dornoch Golf Club
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.
This incredible links course plays 6514 yards of exceptional golf in equally exceptional surroundings. The opening hole on the Championship Golf Course is a simple par-4, no indication of the joy and trouble to come. It is not until golfers walk over the headlands to the third tee that they get a sense of this striking golf course. Tom Watson claimed it’s "the most fun I've ever had on a golf course" and he's played a few!
