This Traditional Scottish Golf Links Course was created on the shores of the Moray Firth from a Highland wilderness of whins and heather, and tests the talents of professional and amateur alike. Founded in 1887, it is now one of the best courses in Scotland, and hosted the 1999 Walker Cup.
Situated on the shores of the Moray Firth, the Nairn Dunbar golf course, founded in 1899, is a highly rated Scottish links championship course representing a formidable challenge with its gorse and whin lined fairways.
The club enjoys a growing reputation for high quality competition golf. Renowned for its excellent condition and friendly reception to visitors, it was the chosen venue in 1999 for the Northern Open Professional Championship, the Scottish Ladies Amateur Stroke Play and the Scottish Boys Stroke Play. In 2001 the club hosted the Scottish Amateur Stroke Play Championship (qualifying rounds) and in 2002 the Seniors Home Internationals and the Scottish Open Amateur Mixed Tournaments.
An outstanding new clubhouse was officially opened in May 1998 by Sir Michael Bonallack OBE. Facilities include comfortable lounge bars, dining room, extensive locker room facilities with visitors room and showers.
The new home of the Barclays Scottish Open 2011, Castle Stuart is a championship links course overlooking the Moray Firth. This exceptional new course is situated just 10.5 miles from Nairn, just 15 minutes by car.
