The Jewel Of Moray
|From 1 July 2013 6-Monthly Membership will be available at a reduced price of £145 - No joining fees|
|Originally a nine hole course, extended in 1985 making it probably
one of the most demanding links courses in the North of Scotland. Most
fairways are jealously guarded by gorse and broom, adding an additional
challenge to members and visitors alike.
The 517 yard 4th par 5 has recently been changed to a dog-leg by selective tree planting. Many new bunkers have recently been added and the course lengthened. A new pond or water retention area has also been constructed in front of the 6th tee.
Having played the spectacular 12th with its green nestling in the Clashach Cove over 150 feet below the tee, golfers are faced with panoramic views over the Moray Firth. Paul Lawrie described this hole as probably the best par 3 he has ever played. Many golfers standing on this tee have seen the local dolphins having fun in the firth below.
The bloom on the gorse and broom during the summer months is an added attraction throughout the course.
|THE GAME OF
Play the ball as it lies,
Play the course as you find it
If you can't do either,
do what is fair.
But to do what is fair,
