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. Join us for one of the many great competitions throughout the summer or just come and play!

I look forward to welcoming you in 2016.


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.
