Fortrose and Rosemarkie

Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club, north east Scotland
Length5890 yards

Originally founded in 1888, Fortrose golf course expanded to 18 holes in the early 1930's. The golf architect James Braid was brought in to squeeze the new holes into the limited space available on a peninsula jutting out into the Moray Firth to the north east of Inverness.

Fortrose and Rosemarkie is a tough golf course with a unique character. It is surrounded on three sides by beach and water. The course only measures 5890 yards, but what it lacks in distance is more than made up for by the small, deceptive, greens, tight fairways and strategically placed bunkers throughout the course.

The 4th, a classic links hole, is the course signature hole and considered to be one of the most challenging golf holes in the North of Scotland.

And even if your golf is not at its best, an added bonus of playing here is the opportunity to see the blue-nosed dolphins in the Moray Firth with the best viewing points around the lighthouse at the 4th.

Fortrose and Rosemarkie golf course offers a unique venue as part of a golf tour of the north east highlands of Scotland.
