Some of the most popular courses within easy reach of Inverglen Guest include:
Castle Stuart Golf Course
History and diversity make Scottish golf courses famous throughout the world. As Turnberry is to Ayrshire and Gleneagles is to Perthshire, Castle Stuart has been conceived to be for the Highlands – a beacon reaching out to golfers throughout the world. The centrepiece for this Scottish destination golf resort is Castle Stuart Golf Links, a championship links course overlooking the Moray Firth and well-known landmarks that are synonymous with Inverness and the Black Isle – Kessock Bridge and Chanonry Lighthouse perhaps the most notable. The course has been the home to The Scottish Open in recent years.
Royal Dornoch Golf Course
Championship Course ranked No.6 in the world and No.1 in Scotland by Golf Digest 2014
Royal Dornoch Golf Club is spellbinding and many golfers from all over the world make the pilgrimage to this natural links at some point in their lives. It’s the timeless setting that makes Royal Dornoch such a pleasing place to play golf. It’s wild, isolated and, at the same time, absolutely beautiful; there’s the blaze of colour in early summer when the gorse is in flower. The pure white sandy beach divides the links from the Dornoch Firth and it all feels very humbling.
Ostensibly the course itself is pretty straightforward: it’s an out-and-back layout. Many of the greens, though, are built on natural raised plateaus making approach play especially challenging. The course is consistently rated in the top 20 of the world’s top 100 courses and has previously been awarded Golf Tourism Scotland “Course of the Year”.
Nairn Golf Course
Nestling on the shores of the Moray Firth this Traditional Scottish Golf Links Course was created from a Highland wilderness of gorse and heather and tests the talents of professional and amateur alike. Founded in 1887, it is now one of the best courses in Scotland and has hosted a large number of important championships.
“Nairn is a classic, traditional out-and-back links, and the opening half a dozen holes along the coast rival anything at more illustrious Scottish courses,” said Jock Howard, commissioning editor at Golf World. “The putting surfaces are in immaculate condition and the variety of the examination never gets boring. I can’t think of anywhere I would rather be on a sleepy summer afternoon.”
Ranked number 9 in the list of Top 100 Courses in Scotland 2014, The Nairn Golf Club received high marks from the report’s illustrious panel of judges, which included three-times Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher, Major winner Sandy Lyle, Ryder Cup player Andrew Coltart and broadcasters Ewen Murray and Andrew Cotter.
