Tain Golf Club
Tain Golf Club overview
Tain Golf Course overview
Tain Golf Club is not the longest of courses, measuring just over 6400-yards from the medal tees, therefore accuracy is more important than distance, particularly with many of the longer holes lined with gorse. The par-70 makes the best use of the available land which has resulted in a non-traditional links layout with holes going in different directions which adds to the sense of variety including back-to-back par 3’s on the 16th & 17th holes.
Highlights include the par-4 11th which requires a blind approach shot to a green protected by two large sand dunes and the par-4 2nd where the Aldie Burn winds its way across the fairway in front of the green, waiting to catch any under-hit approach shots.
Did You Know?
Tain was originally named St. Duthus Golf Club, named after the patron saint of the town. It was only in 1911 after acquiring a new clubhouse that the course changed its name to Tain Golf Club.
