If you are on a golf trip to the Highlands and leave Golspie off your itinerary then you are making a big mistake. It offers an interesting and unique mix of links, heathland and parkland holes that perfectly complement the other courses in this beautiful region.

This James Braid creation gets underway with some classic links golf played over gently undulating land alongside, or at least close to, the scenic coastline. Around the turn, the course develops a heathland style, with trees lining the fairways. In this mid-section, the 9th is certainly one to enjoy.

Onto the back 9, which generally has a parkland feel, with just a sprinkle of links. The 16th will perhaps live longest in the memory – it is a testing par 3 played to a multi-tiered green with the sea providing a picturesque backdrop. A par here is a great score.

Golspie is a fun course played over some diverse terrain, and that is what gives it its character. It may not have the immediate wow factor from the moment you drive into the car park that you get at some of the bigger clubs, but after playing 18 holes here you will certainly appreciate what makes it so special.
