Royal Dornoch Golf Course
Situated 45 miles north of Inverness, Royal Dornoch was designed originally by Old Tom Morris in 1891 with John Sutherland and George Duncan making successive and substantial changes in future years.

The course is just over 6,500 yards, and of a quality you would expect of a links that has the standard with ease to host the Open. This is a classic links test where the advantage is clearly in the hands of strategic and calculated golfers. This course is beautifully nestled in the Scottish Highlands offering breathtaking views over Dornoch Bay. One of the keys to unlocking a good score here is finding the right position on the fairway leaving you the opportunity to reach the pins on these tricky sloping greens.

For wild, natural beauty and a formidable challenge the links here are unequalled anywhere in the world. Records show that golf has been played here since 1616 and is without fail rated in the top 20 courses in the world.

15th in the Top 100 Courses in the British Isles 2002.
