Nairn Golf Club—Championship Course

The Championship Course at Nairn Golf Club has been the site of many qualifying golf tournaments. The course is set along the Moray Firth, and includes mostly gently rolling terrain, but does have a couple of holes leading uphill and downhill. I found the course challenging and well worth the reasonable green fee.

As usual with Scottish golf links, the fairways are hard and so are the greens. It seems your drive goes forever. However, be careful to ensure you roll your ball up to the green, because a ball hit to the green does not stick. There is the occasional pot-hole bunker in the fairway that requires going out sideways or backwards.

A caddie is not essential here since the course is fairly flat, and it is "what you see is what you get." A driving range is available near by where you may warm up some, as well as a practice putting green. Nairn does have a second course, the nine-hole Newton Course. But by my survey, I think I would take a pass on it.

Nairn is easily accessible and only a short distance from Inverness, if you chose to stay there to be closer to other attractions.
