Castle Stuart

As Turnberry is to Ayrshire, Castle Stuart has been conceived to be for the Highlands, a championship links course overlooking the Moray Firth and well-known landmarks that are synonymous with Inverness and the Black Isle.


With rolling, firm greens that are known as one of the most complex in Scotland, Nairn Golf Club is a can’t-miss stop for championship links golf in the Scottish Highlands. This delightful gem hosted the prestigious Walker Cup matches in 1999 and is routinely nominated as one of the top 10 golf courses in the world.

The green staff work tirelessly to preserve the original design, whilst presenting a course that is regularly acclaimed for its quality. The perfect balance between challenge and fun, and in a breath-taking setting.

Royal Dornoch

Royal Dornoch is spellbinding, and many golfers from all over the world make the pilgrimage to this natural links at some point in their lives. It is often quoted as one of the must-play courses. It's the timeless setting that makes Royal Dornoch such a pleasing place to play golf. It's wild, isolated, and, at the same time, absolutely beautiful; there's the blaze of colour in the early summer when the gorse is in flower. The pure white sandy beach divides the links from the Dornoch Firth, and it feels very humbling.

Cruden Bay is situated on the east coast of Scotland, 23 miles north of Aberdeen, 8 miles south of Peterhead, and only a two-hour drive from St. Andrews, the 'Home of Golf'. The course offers an internationally famous golfing experience - old-fashioned links golf at its best - on one of the best links courses in Scotland. Creating unique challenges demanding the skills of power, placement, and fine judgment upon the discerning golfer. Set against a backdrop of subtly contoured greens and magnificent panoramic views, our Course truly justifies the accolades it receives.

Trump International GL

The golf course follows a classic pattern of two out-and-back loops of nine holes. All 18 holes thread their way engagingly through the dunes, rising here to find views of the sea and coastline, plunging there into secluded valleys, offering a sequence of superlative topographics, landscapes, alternating between spaciousness and enclosure, then panoramic view, and the whole time a rich texture of vegetation and wildlife habitats surrounding the golf holes. The golf course will lake for nothing. The landscape framework of the site comes close to an ideal.

Royal Aberdeen

Royal Aberdeen Golf Club in Aberdeen, Scotland, was founded in 178- as the Society of Golfers at Aberdeen and became the Aberdeen Golf Club in 1815. Until 1888 members played on the Queen's Links close to the city before moving across the River Don to the links at Balgownie. The course was originally designed by the Simpson Brothers, Archie and Robert of Carnoustie, and later re-bunkered and lengthened by James Braid. Hawtree & Company are now engaged as the Club's architects to ensure our classic links keeps pace with the modern game.
