Message from Andy Stewart, Club President

2017 marks 125 years of competitive golf over the Brora Links and we hope to welcome many friends old and new to play Brora and our near neighbour courses Golspie and Royal Dornoch. Recognised as probably the best example of the great James Braids course designs and certainly the one that has kept to the original vision of the games greatest architect, Brora hugs the coastline and commands breathtaking mountain and sea views just 20 minutes north of Royal Dornoch and an hour from Inverness. Five times Open Champion Peter Thomson rates Brora as “the best traditional links course in the world” while writers and players galore glory in its fabulous setting, its superb condition and the devilish challenges this hidden gem offers. Make sure you include this golfing treat in your Highland Golf Escape. Join us for one of the many great competitions throughout the summer or just come and play!

I look forward to welcoming you in 2017.

Andy


Burn  (428 yards par 4)

The fifth hole is bisected by the Clynelish Burn, which runs past the local distillery of that name. As with one of Wordsworth's Lucy poems the pin is half-hidden from the eye. The deep hollow behind the green precludes attack. A four here deserves a  dram of the local brew in the clubhouse lounge.
