What we say
This demanding links overlooks the Moray Firth and was transformed from a nine to a full 18 holer in 1985.
Originally a nine hole course, extended in 1985 making it probably one of the most demanding links courses in the North of Scotland. Most fairways are jealously guarded by gorse and broom, adding an additional challenge to members and visitors alike.
The 517 yard 4th par 5 has recently been changed to a dog-leg by selective tree planting. Many new bunkers have recently been added and the course lengthened. A new pond or water retention area has also been constructed in front of the 6th tee.
Having played the spectacular 12th with it's green nestling in the Clashach Cove over 150 feet below the tee, golfers are faced with panoramic views over the Moray Firth. Paul Lawrie described this hole as probably the best par 3 he has ever played. Many golfers standing on this tee have seen the local dolphins having fun in the firth below.
The bloom on the gorse and broom during the summer months is an added attraction throughout the course.
