Nairn is a classic links offering amazing views of the sea and the Black Isle from every hole. Water is in play right from the off, with the opening stretch of holes running straight out along the shoreline. This traditional Scottish layout then turns inland, winding its way between the gorse and heather, to provide an honest, traditional test.


A course packed with fun and enjoyment, Nairn Dunbar is always a favourite of visitors who put it on their Highland itinerary – not least because of the warm welcome afforded to everyone in the clubhouse. The course is known for its tricky par 4s but perhaps the stand-out hole is the 8th – a short par 3 played to a sunken bowl green set in the sand dunes.


Four-time Scottish Open venue Castle Stuart is always a pleasure to play, and is considered a bucket list experience for any keen amateur. It’s thoughtful design, with plenty of room off the tee and undulating run-off areas around the greens, means that it is playable for players of all abilities but it is important not to be out of position if you want to score well.
