Forres is one of Scotland's oldest small towns, and also one of its most attractive.
Situated in just off the A96 about 27 miles east of the Highland capital of Inverness, the town boasts impressive parks and gardens with outstanding floral sculptures as well as its own 18 hole parkland golf course.
Designed by Open Championship winners James Braid and Willie Park the Par 70 course is just less than 6300 yards from the tips and although not the longest by today’s standards it provides a good test for golfers of all abilities. Well known for its spectacular views over Findhorn Bay and the Moray Firth, Forres Golf Course is a beautifully maintained, picturesque and interesting layout that will satisfy all who play it. The course is full of memorable holes; none more so than the 16th, aptly named ‘Pond’ this is a spectacular hole where a watery grave awaits errant tee shots.
In its recent history Forres has been honoured to host events such as the Scottish Professional Championship, the Northern Open, and the Scottish Young Professionals Championships - a testimony to it’s quality.
