The Courses

  1. ROYAL DORNOCH – On a latitude shared with Hudson Bay and Northern Russia, you'll rejoice over the sheer glory of this classic links course. The home of Donald Ross and favorite of Tom Watson who said "I have played none finer." This course features spectacular terrain and views of the sea from every hole.
  2. NAIRN – Among the many great links golf courses, for which Scotland is known, there is Nairn. Set among great stands of gorse and heather, this course is not too far from Dornoch and offers an uncompromising challenge. Crisp seaside turf along fairways that thread their way through the whin and gorse. The greens are as firm and fast as can be found in Scotland.
  3. CARNOUSTIE – Ranked 24th in the world. Possibly the most difficult course and best finishing holes in all of Scotland. Site of the 1953 Open Championship, where Ben Hogan became the first to break 70 in 400 years. Site of the 1997 British Amateur and the 1999 Open Championship.
  4. ST. ANDREWS:
    1. THE OLD COURSE – Ranked 7th in the world (by Golf Magazine), "The Home of Golf," the "Cradle of the Game," "The Birthplace of the Game," "Mecca". Double greens, shared by 14 holes and paralleling fairways and more history and tradition in one golf venue than any place in the world. Site of the Open Championship 2000.
    2. THE NEW COURSE – It is here that the locals claim more shot making ability and finesse is required. The New Course (over 100 yrs. old) is a wee bit longer than The Old and offers a challenging test to all golfers.
    3. THE JUBILEE – So named for the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth, this long test of golf is said to be the toughest of all the courses at St. Andrews.
  5. ROYAL TROON – This course is located at the south end of the beautiful Ayrshire coastline. Royal Troon, on the Open rota, boasts not only the longest hole, but the shortest too - the famous 8th known as the "Postage Stamp". Troon is the only "Royal" club in the west of Scotland and is a golfers heaven.
  6. PRESTWICK – Birthplace of the Open Championship (In 1860) and all those early Championships. Probably the most unique course in the world. Designed by Old Tom Morris with blind shots and narrow fairways.
