It is said that whenever the great Jack Nicklaus comes to Britain, he jets up to Dornoch (currently rated as the 10th best course in the world) to get away from it all.
There is no question that Royal Dornoch Golf Course is the jewel in the crown of Sutherland’s courses.
Within said crown, however, there are little gems sparkling. Golspie Golf Course is a beautiful combination of rugged links and parkland golf.

Royal Dornoch

Despite the fact that the golfers of Dornoch only formed a Club in 1877 they were so far seeing that they constructed a second golf course known as the Ladies Course in the early part of the 20th century. This came about in 1939 after the outbreak of the Second World War, the Air Ministry decided to take over the majority of the Ladies course as an airfield.
It was not until after the war that Royal Dornoch received compensation from the Air Ministry but this was insufficient to re-build the Ladies Course. However a nine hole course was constructed instead. However it was always the intention of the Members to re-instate an eighteen hole course on the land previously occupied by the Ladies Course and from the 1960’s the extension of the existing nine holes began.
The Struie Course is somewhat shorter than its predecessor, and although it is not that long by modern day standards, it is a fine test of golf requiring accurate shots to avoid well placed gorse bushes and thick rough.

Brora Golf Course

Gleneagles may be more glamorous, Carnoustie more prestigious. It is Brora which is the most northerly golf memorial to James Braid in his native Scotland. 
Brora is also the headquarters of the James Braid Golfing Society, and while its President, Peter Thomson, and fellow member Ronan Rafferty annually enthuse, the club golfer, the bedrock of the game, will derive equal pleasure and satisfaction from Brora’s 6110 yards.
Given 194 acres of Scottish links land to work on, what in 1923 was entitled “Braid’s Plan” is hardly altered. Here the visitor will enjoy the mixture of bent grass and beach sand, burn water and gorse in glorious yellow May bloom. There is even a railway which comes into play from the tenth tee.

Tain Golf Course

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.
Designed in 1890 by Old Tom Morris, the layout of the holes guarantees an interesting round for beginners or experts. The sheltered location of the course ensures favourable weather for most of the year – winter greens are seldom used at Tain.
