What we say
As part of their centenary celebrations in 2006, Elgin staged the fastest ever round played over their scenic parkland course timed at 14 minutes and 50 seconds. However, the record wasn’t established by one man or woman sprinting solo around the course but by a veritable army of members who staged a sort of relay race.
Frankly, because it’s such a lovely course, it’s not one to rush round. The opening hole, which is 454 yards off the back tees and 437 off the dailies, is a pretty accurate indication of what’s to follow as there are no fewer than eight par-4s over 400 yards.
The holes – both long and short – are neatly separated by lines of trees that help create a cosy feel. Lush fairways, first-class greens and glorious distant views all contribute to a genuinely exceptional golfing experience. It’s hardly surprising that Elgin has hosted the prestigious Northern Open three times.
This charming heathland golf course was designed by John McPherson and opened in 1906. A regular Tartan Tour venue and host of the PGA Northern Open, it has eight par-4s over 400 yards and a seriously tough par of 69.
There are cracking views of the Cairngorms from a course voted by many the best inland test in the Highlands.
