Message from Alistair Risk, Club President

2016 marks our 125th Anniversary and Royal Dornoch is celebrating 400 years of recorded golf, two extra special reasons to come golfing in Sutherland. 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. Visit Brora in 2016 and join in our Golf week with Jim Farmer or just come and enjoy a great course.

I look forward to welcoming you in 2016.


Long Hole  (501 yards par 5)

The eighth is the longest hole on the golf course. With the length generated by modern equipment the big hitters will occasionally get up in two shots. The arctic terns which provide the club with its logo arrive in mid May to nest on the foreshore.  While sitting on eggs or rearing their young they will swoop and dive with a ferocity which can draw blood.
