Nairn Golf Club

Last Updated:

What we say

A brilliant course that is so much fun to play, while being a really tough challenge. A real mixture of holes with stunning views. It requires a real golfing brain to pass this test. This magical links has bags of pedigree and will simply blow you away.

Second in the Highland pecking order to Dornoch is the beautiful and somewhat unusual course at Nairn. The 1999 Walker Cup venue is a stunning and spectacular course, with beautiful views from almost every hole – but it’s not a normal links. After the fine opening stretch of classic seaside holes over the first seven the course begins to comprise ditches and decidedly un-linksy deciduous trees. Old Tom Morris and James Braid are among the talented many to have had a hand in sculpting the course and, with greens the envy of the rest of Britain and Ireland, it’s another must play.

Nairn Golf Club boasts that you can see the Moray Firth from every single one of their holes and it comes into play on seven of the holes.

Within the Highland wilderness, the course is protected by gorse and heather and will test both amateurs and professionals. Frequently featured in the top-ten courses in Scotland, this is a must-visit.

  • 5 out of 5 One word....quality

    By Mizunoman

    The above says it all. Great course, practice ground and club house. The staff are among the best you will meet and the food is better than most restaurants. All in all. You MUST go there. I love it so much I joined as a country member (I live in merseyside) and feel at home there every time I visit.

  • 3.5 out of 5 nice

    i managed to get on here with a couple of memebers £15 so it was money well spent, a nice layout with a little inland loop. Yes you can slice into the sea on the opening few holes (but you would have to be very wayward). A bit remote but if in the area tie it up with nairn dunbar and moray (old or new)

  • 4 out of 5 Greens like glass

    The wide fairways look innocuous, but the decision making and the impact of a wrong choice require patience,courage and skill. The greens were like glass even at 7pm in the evening, and put other courses in perspective. Shame that the bar and restaurant couldn't match the course. I'd have been in heaven.

  • 4.5 out of 5 great test of golf

    go every year for their 4 day open, some of the best tees and greens in the whole world, not particularly long, but very testing if the wind blows, with plenty of heather and gorse to catch any wayward shots. its not too demanding for the mature golfer, as only one hill to climb, up to 13th green and its easy on the feet. Superb clubhouse overlooking the moray firth and members are extremely friendly when you get to know them. well worth a visit
