Nairn, Championship Course

A classic out and back traditional Scottish links, the Championship course at Nairn Golf Club enjoys a setting on the Moray Firth that lets golfers view the sea from every hole on the course.

In 2015 the course was ranked No 11 by Golf World Magazine in their listing of top golf courses in Scotland. The links were created in 1887 from a Highland setting of gorse and heather and have gone on to host a number of championship events. This is not an easy golf course.

Typically Scottish in style the links offer undulating fairways full of humps and hollow, an abundance of gorse and heather, tricky challenging greens and the challenge of a coastal wind. The front nine holes hug the coast so closely that is perfectly possible to hit the ball into the sea on each of the first seven holes!

Famed Scottish golfers and course architects Archie Simpson, Old Tom Morris, James Braid and Ben Sayers have all had a hand in creating the current layout.

The course is known for the quality of its greens, most of which are well protected by bunkers or other natural hazards – James Braid commented on playing the Championship course that "the texture of the turf and the character of the greens is unrivalled". The fairways are tight and fast.
