The Nairn Club
The Nairn Club, currently ranked No 9 in Scotland lies close to the Moray Firth shore and is a traditional classic "out and in" par-72 links course. Its superbly manicured fairways, fast greens and deep bunkers make it a course which players from across the world return to again and again.
At 6,723 yards, it may not at first appear long by today's course standards, but it's not the length of the tee shot but the accuracy that counts and players will be called upon to exercise all of their shot making talents in order to put together a respectable the Nairn Golf Club championship course.
The first hole, named "Sea" gives a hint of what lies in ahead as the course threads its way along the famous stretch of water called The Moray Firth with spectacular views over the water where pods of Dolphins are frequently spotted. By the time the turn is reached, players will have negotiated 3,275 ( or more! ) yards of spectacular golf links. The homeward run lies slightly inland and the 13th takes the player to the highest point in the course with stunning panoramic views looking towards The Black Isle and mountains beyond before swooping back down to the huge undulations of the green at the long downhill par three called Kopjes. A few more testing holes on the back 9 to negotiate before the sanctuary of the wonderful and recently renovated clubhouse is reached and a much deserved refreshment at the 19th hole!
