Nestling on the shores of the Moray Firth this Traditional Scottish Golf Links Course was created from a Highland wilderness of gorse and heather, and tests the talents of professional and amateur alike. Founded in 1887, it is now one of the best courses in Scotland, and has hosted a large number of important championships.
Ranked number 9 in the list of Top 100 Courses in Scotland 2014 and home of the Walker Cup in 1999 and the Curtis Cup in 2012, one of the remarkable features of the course is that from every hole you can see the Moray Firth and the golden colouring and changing lights of the Black Isle. What delights the visitor and member alike is the Scottish-ness of the links. Other than in a strong westerly, it leads you in gently before demanding accurate driving and precision second shots. Gorse is a hazard. The par 4 holes tease and confound and all four short holes are cunningly angled, with the 4th a little gem and the 14th simply spectacular. As three of the par 5 holes are over 530 yards long, it is a test for all. Yet, even more challenging than the humps and hollows that lurk in the fairways, is the trickery of the greens. Eighty years ago, having played the Championship Course, James Braid commented on their quality - "The texture of the turf and the character of the greens is unrivalled".
The Nairn Golf Club is a private members golf club founded in 1887 and made up of 1400 members. Visitors receive a warm welcome and are encouraged come and enjoy "The Nairn Experience". Once you've tackled the challenging links it will leave you wanting to come back again and again.
