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.

Sam Torrance's assessment says it all. Here is a hole of infinite charm. Its apparent ease is contradicted by the amount of golf balls found in the Clynelish Burn. It is a hole to either consign to memory or recall with one of the prints available in  the golf shop.

Hole descriptions are from Hugh Baillie's book, "Golf in the Back of Beyond"  - available from the Pro Shop
