Brora Golf Club

Established in 1891 and redesigned In 1923 by James Braid – five times Open Champion and designer of the Gleneagles – the golf club has stood the passing of time and remains a fair and challenging test of true links golf.

The layout offers is a classic 18-hole with an easy opening hole, a short hole facing each cardinal point of the compass, a hole you can’t reach in 2 shots and the last green under the clubhouse window. The course will ensure that you use every club in the bag.

The club presents all the attributes of the Scottish seaside links, there is bent and gorse – often in full bloom for Golf Week – as well as juniper and thyme in profusion. The sand is local and light, aiding recovery, the bunkers strategic but fair. As with all seaside links there are special places, the panorama of seascape and landscape from the second tee, the proximity of the sea to the 9th green, should there be time to bathe your feet. The 13th, is one of the jewels in Braid’s Crown. Tarbatness the 17th, so called because of the lighthouse which gives the line. With the elevated tee, this is one of the best driving holes in all Scotland.
