Where2Golf says: 

Inverness Golf Club: Located just a mile from the centre of Inverness, this fine parkland golf course provides a pleasant counterpoint to its Highland cousins spread along the coast to nor' and east. The opening five may lull you into thinking that on this excellently maintained course, all the holes run straight and are played in a relatively flat, partly tree-lined environment, where greenside bunkering is the main line of defence. But things become decidedly more interesting at the doglegging, downhill par-4 6th. Here you'll take on a blind drive and then an approach over a small stream to a small, round and testingly elevated green. From the 6th hole onwards the interest quotient rises substantially, with many elevation changes, a testing collection of five varied par-3s and many pleasing views over surrounding hills. Never losing its undulating, parkland feel, the layout throws down its biggest challenges on four formidable back-nine par-4s. The left-to-right doglegging 12th is played from a wonderfully elevated tee, down to a tight tree-lined fairway below. The long and fiendishly doglegging 14th requires nerves of steel and an inch-perfect drive to put you in any kind of shape for the long approach into a small green, out of bounds awaits anything pushed right. At the tight 16th you'll need to take dead aim at a marker post and trust your swing for a testing, uphill blind drive. The long par-4 18th is a great closing hole, with the inviting clubhouse always in view as you make your way in a straight line from tee to green.
