The township of Lossiemouth has two courses of high quality and of a championship standard sufficiently high to host the Northern Open. The courses are set along the wild sandy beaches of the Moray Firth and were built at a time when the Victorians considered sea bathing to be essential for good health and well-being. Lossiemouth is certainly a bracing place; the courses are hard and running with characteristic sea beech grasses that make for tight lies, requiring the deft bump-and-run approach shot of seaside golf. The Old course, originally laid out by 'Old' Tom Morris, is demanding and requires resolve and thought rather than power. A deft putting touch also helps.
