Golf and Scotland go together like having a whisky and then several other whiskies. With its dramatic landscapes, occasional great weather, and all the history you can eat – Scotland has it all when it comes to golfing breaks. This goes double for golfing in the Highlands. The capital of the Highlands Inverness has access to some of the most challenging and most beautiful golf courses in the world!
Why Book a Golf Break in the Highlands & Inverness?
Golfing in the Scottish Highlands offers tranquillity, amazing natural beauty, and golf courses that present challenges to the casual golfer, right up to the professional player! The varied landscape that the Highlands are blessed with present the travelling player a range of golfing possibilities – from old-fashioned links to dramatic mountain ranges to test your skill.
When visiting highland golf courses, you should plan your itinerary to make the most of your experience. With so many great clubs and courses within a 100-hundred-mile radius, if you plan it right, you could spend a couple of weeks travelling from course to course, never playing the same round twice!
There’s plenty of golf courses in the north of Scotland to try, so here’s just a taste of some of the rounds you could be enjoying on a Golf Break in the Highlands.
- The jewel in the highland crown is without a doubt is Royal Dornoch. It’s a world-class course set in some world-class coastal scenery. Golfers from all over the world make the pilgrimage to this natural links and it’s lauded as one of the ‘must-play’ courses for any aspiring player.
- Another excellent Highland course is Castle Stuart Golf Links . It gives some serious competition to Royal Dornach as the best course in the North. It’s a very playable modern links course – great for both veterans and players just coming to the sport. The views of the Moray Firth from the course are worth the trip alone!
- Another spectacular seaside course is Nairn Golf Club. With every hole, you’ll be playing with the sea as your spectator (and probably will lose a couple of golf balls to it too!). The course’s trademark is having greens that are fast and true, and greens that are well protected by natural hazards and bunkers. Nairn is a bit of a lesser-known gem of a course, but it’s a beauty, nonetheless.
- Just a few miles north of the legendary Royal Dornach lies Brora Golf club. Brora is a quaint wee course that’s small but perfectly formed. Watch out for the four-legged invaders in the form of cows and sheep that have a habit of wanting to check if the grass is indeed greener on the other side of the electrified fence! It’s an unapologetically traditional course that benefits from great views and provides a super round of golf.
- Kings Golf Club is the new kid on the block having only opened as recently as 2019! This 18 Hole Championship golf course sits between the mysterious Loch Ness and the bustling city centre of the Capital of the Highlands – Inverness. Standing in the shadow of Craig Phadraig and said to be on a site that Saint Columba camped on whilst visiting the King of the Picts King Bridei. The greens are firm and fast and provide a great day of golfing with easy access to the great facilities, attractions, and nightlife in Inverness.
