Golspie Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1889

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.
