The Highlands is not only home to Scotland’s most stunning scenery but also some of the finest and most challenging golf courses in the country.
When referring to Scotland, The Highlands is what most people imagine. The Highlands are known for their unmatched hospitality in their people and the sheer beauty of their coastline and mainland. Its wide variety of culture, unmatched scenery, and historical golf links all create this vast, northern county. Come experience the scenic beauty of The Highlands and enjoy the golf courses and attractions that surround it.
The Highlands offer some of the most challenging golf courses in the country. With its classical courses ranging from the world-renowned and historical Royal Dornoch to the newer but stunning venue at Castle Stuart, golfers are drawn from around the world to these amazing courses. Royal Dornoch offers a timeless setting and raw beauty on its courses and just celebrated its 400th anniversary of golf being played there in 2016. Castle Stuart has already hosted 4 Scottish Opens since its opening in 2009.
By traveling through the mountains, courses such as Spey Valley and the beautiful Boat of Garten will give you an inland golfing challenge with a mountainous backdrop before heading to Inverness, the capital of The Highlands. Pushing even further north will introduce you to a more rugged challenge with courses such as Brora, which still has fencing around the greens to protect golfers from the wandering wildlife. Should you wish to take up the challenge, a trip to the far north of the country allows you to play the most northerly golf courses in mainland Scotland. Both Reay and Durness give you the opportunity to play golf where rugged courses and stunning scenery come together for one truly memorable experience.
