Golspie Golf Club


3+ (3 gold): one of our top-rated 3-star courses, worthy of 3½ stars.
   Golspie Golf Club Est. 1889

Where2Golf says: 

Golspie Golf Club: Although relatively short at just under 6,000 yards from the men's tees, Golspie still packs a lot in, offering a unique blend of seaside links, as well as heathland golf. The par of 68 is not often bettered, so the experienced golfer will face a variety of shots if a good score is to be carded.

Several holes run at Golspie alongside the sea in typically open links terrain, while others make a short foray into a more heathland environment, where trees and heather add to the challenges, especially if you are wayward from the tee.

Less experienced golfers will enjoy the chance to work on their game without the challenges of championship length, while golfers of all abilities can take pleasure in the sea views onto Dornoch Firth and up to the solid-looking Ben Bhraggie, which rises some 383 metres and looks down on the village of Golspie.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

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...
