Royal Dornoch Golf Club

The 5th hole at Royal Dornoch Golf Club.

Royal Dornoch Golf Club is said to be in the top dozen golf courses anywhere in the world. This beautiful links course combines gentle seascapes with undulating terrain, and, of course, absolutely great golf.
The club was formed in 1877, and since then has become a championship course with the likes of Scott Verplank having played here. The course was voted Golf Tourism Scotland Course of the Year, and as if one beautiful championship course wasn’t enough, there is a second 18 hole course called the Struie.
At the time of writing, visiters were able to play golf at Royal Dornoch from Sunday to Friday, and on Saturday after 2pm, or after 3pm in July and August. Please check with the club in advance of travelling, however. Both caddies and buggies are available, as well as a pro shop, bar, catering and wi-fi facilities at the clubhouse.
