Elgin Golf Club: if the coastal links courses on the Moray Firth are giving you a hard time, Elgin may have just the answer ... and that's not a reference to the remarkable ruins of a centuries-old Catholic cathedral which stands in the town. Elgin also boasts a pleasant and relatively easy-going parkland course.
Predominantly tree-lined, this very enjoyable and scenic layout is potentially a source of solace for the troubled "links" golfer. It's also recommended for those simply looking for something a little bit different from the area's many storied (but often windswept) coastal courses.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, day tickets, etc. [Last updated: 2020].
The town of Elgin was formerly one of Scotland's cathedral cities. The very impressive ruins of the former cathedral stand testament to its very troubled past. Even as a ruin, the cathedral stands out as one of Scotland’s most ambitious and beautiful medieval buildings. The 13th-century west front represents one of the finest architectural achievements in Scotland from that period.
