Royal Dornoch Golf Club

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. Most people know about Royal Dornoch and many have this course on their must-play list.

Formed in 1877, Dornoch has now been a Royal club for over 100 years! A Royal title means exceptional standards and we always aim to exceed the expectations of our frequent visitors and loyal members. However, we aim to do this in a relaxed, informal environment, with an emphasis on traditional highland hospitality. 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".

It is not just the Championship course that presents golfers with the challenges of links-land. Our second 18 hole course the Struie is enjoyable and entertaining for the whole family at a modest green fee, and it can also test the lower handicap player.

The town of Dornoch, only 45 miles from Inverness and its airport, is steeped in history; there has been a human settlement in the area for over 4,000 years.
