What we say

Old-fashioned links at its most memorable with the Dornoch Firth and the Ross-shire Hills in the background; Ross’ design strategy gets cleverer every time you play it. Dornoch is some distance away from any airport, but well worth the trip. Eighteen difficult and different holes which never give a moment to switch off. Superb condition and a wonderful atmosphere. This is the complete golfing treat. 
Romantic. Enchanting. Relaxing. An escape. A magical place to play golf. With some stunning holes, fantastic green complexes. Not dissimilar to the Old Course in many ways – a classic out and back layout on a narrow tract of land between the town and the sea, with gorse-lined fairways. Dornoch has better views and much more varied topography, with several holes with noticeable elevation changes. If romance is what you want, head for Dornoch.

The Top 100 Golf Courses in Britain and Ireland

Royal Dornoch has been a Royal club for over 100 years and over those years the Championship course has been changed and improved. It continues to be ranked within the top-15 courses in the UK and Ireland.

A Tom Morris design, this famous links course follows a classic out-and-back layout with many of the holes playing along the coast.

Strictly Come Dancing judge Len Goodman says: "Wondrous links and magical place to play. I once asked the caddiemaster ‘are the greens fast?’ He responded with “the greens are 12 on the stimpmeter and the fairways are 11!”
