Brora golf course, north of Scotland
Length6110 yards

Brora golf course, to the north of Dornoch, is a typical Scottish Highland golfing links with the classic layout of nine holes out and nine holes back. The first holes run with the sea to your right and the ninth hole comes particularly close to the water. The golf course offers interesting panoramas and a selection of short holes which face each of the main points of the compass, so the wind can have a major role to play.

The original holes were established by Old Tom Morris in 1891 and the links were upgraded by the famous golf architect James Braid in the 1920s. A great driving hole is the 17th where the local lighthouse indicates the line from the elevated tee.

A rather unique feature of this golf course is that a flock of sheep are housed on ground in the centre of the course and are free to roam around. Each green, and some of the tees, are therefore protected by low electric fencing and it makes for some interesting local rules!

There are plenty of views to enjoy as you work your way around this course, which is a fair and challenging test of your ability at traditional links golf. This is the farthest north of any the courses we recommend including in a golf tour of Scotland, but we are sure you will find the journey to Brora well worthwhile.
