Golf in Highlands

A region of stunning natural beauty and steeped in history, the Highlands is worth a visit for its scenery alone, however it has also come to be known for its tremendous golf tradition. The area played host to many Scottish Opens, a Walker Cup, a Curtis Cup and Scottish Hydro Challenge on the Challenge Tour. Inverness, the Highland capital, is home to many well-known courses including Inverness Golf Club itself, one of the finest parkland tests in the area. A short drive along the A96 over to Nairn, you will find the brilliant Nairn Golf Club, a personal favourite of Colin Montgomerie, who won the Scottish Amateur there in 1987. Other top-class tracks are in abundance throughout the Highlands and courses such as Nairn Dunbar, Boat of Garten, Fortrose & Rosemarkie, Tain and Macdonald Spey Valley are definitely worth your time and money.
