Ranked number 11 in the list of Top 100 Courses in Scotland 2015 (Golf World Magazine), this Traditional Scottish Golf Links Course was created from a Highland wilderness of gorse and heather, and tests the talents of professional and amateur alike. The Nairn Golf Club's truly remarkable feature is that you can see the Moray Firth and the golden colouring and changing lights of the Black Isle from every hole. As three of the par-5 holes are over 530 yards long, it is a test for all.
The first seven are particularly stringent because a player is in danger of losing their ball in the water at any time. What delights most golfers is the “Scottish-ness” of the layout - other than a strong westerly, it leads you in gently before demanding accurate driving and precision second shots. The par-4 holes tease and confound and all four short holes are cunningly angled. Yet, even more challenging than the humps and hollows that lurk in the fairways, is the trickery of the greens.
