Royal Dornoch Golf Club

Inverness has been labelled a gateway to the brilliant golf courses of the north of Scotland, and that description is perhaps best exemplified at Royal Dornoch, of which Tom Watson proclaimed it to be ‘the most fun I ever had playing golf’. To be precise, the club is located in a remote corner of Sutherland, around 45 miles north of central Inverness, but who could blame the town – indeed any town – for claiming it? Regularly ranked among the world’s finest courses, Royal Dornoch offers visitors from all over the world excellent packages and golden opportunities to enjoy both the landscape and the links. Surrounded by white sandy shorelines, this timeless Championship course is somehow isolated and yet inclusive, with the whipping North Sea winds making it a thoroughly challenging and enjoyable round. Formed in 1877, the club has enjoyed ‘Royal’ status for over a century and has long been considered the jewel in the crown of Scotland’s golfing heritage. While a round will require you to stump up, it’s surely worth it for the bragging rights, to say nothing of what promises to be a memorable afternoon of golf.

I played Royal Dornoch twice in 2004 with a group of twenty. The first round shot 79 with a rental set. (My clubs showed up a day later) During the first round, my playing partner made an Ace on #11. The bar tab for 20 after with our "caddies" was large. The second round a day later after Brora, was fantastic, rained straight down, gorse blooming a brilliant yellow, shot 76 and didn't want to leave. If I could play one course every day for the rest of my life it would be Royal Dornoch. Our caddies were brilliant!
