Where2Golf says: 

Brora Golf Club: The gently undulating duneland of Brora is home to one of Scotland's lesser known gems, and one that commands great respect amongst golf aficionados. Laid out on wonderfully open expansive links terrain, the course roams out-and-back along the seashore just to the north of the village.

Brora's rolling fairways and rough are maintained in part by the green-keeping staff, and in part by a dedicated band of sheep and cattle; these highly efficient grass-munchers ensuring that ball-finding from wayward shots is not as difficult as on many seaside links courses.

The course really comes into its own on and around the greens, which is where your score will flourish or founder. Protected from the livestock by electrified wire, the firm greens are home to all manner of slopes and borrows. There's also deep revetted bunkers and steepish run-offs to contend with around the putting surfaces; the run-offs will will either gather your ball into the sand, or ensure a deft touch is required to connect with the putting surface.

The scenic Sutherland foothills combine with wonderful sea views to provide the backdrop for James Braid's excellent layout ... one that's regarded as amongst his finest. The more you play Brora the more likely you are to become one of its many devotees, enchanted by its excellent layout, wonderful views, authenticity and at times rustic character.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
