Royal Dornoch Golf Club

A timeless setting makes Royal Dornoch such a pleasing place to play golf

Royal Dornoch Golf Club

One of the world’s great courses and only the remoteness of its location hinders it from being an Open venue. Dornoch is possibly Scottish links golf at its best, whatever the time of year. In spring, the sea of yellow gorse is truly something to behold. On a summer’s evening, or in the still of an autumn afternoon when the heather is in full purple bloom, Dornoch is as close to a golfing paradise as one can get. Golf has been played here since the 17th century but it was the influence of the legendary Tom Morris in 1886 that made it the spectacle and challenge that it is today. Dornoch is located 40 miles north of Inverness.
