Brora Golf Course
Golf Breaks in Scotland
There’s nothing quite like playing 18 holes of golf in the country where it all started.
In fact, Scotland’s reputation as the Home of Golf continues to inspire guests from far and near to visit the Highlands and breathe in some of the most challenging – and picturesque – golf courses anywhere in the world. Brora Golf Club is no different. Although it was established in 1891, James Braid, five-time British Open champion and prolific golf course designer, revamped the course in 1923, offering golfers a fair and challenging test of true links golf, which has stood up to the passing of time.

Brora contains all the characteristics of the Scottish seaside links – and the layout is classic. An easy opening hole, a short hole facing each cardinal point of the compass, a hole you can't reach in two shots, and the last green under the clubhouse window.
The course ensures you use every club in the bag and that you’ll have to adapt and manufacture according to whether the course is running fast or slow, with the greens throughout renowned for their texture.
The rough is negligible in order to facilitate play, so you ought to return home with all the golf balls you brought. Overall, the golf course is a holiday treat, the clubhouse is modern and comfortable and the catering is excellent.
But the most overriding, all-important feature, is the warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
