Castle Stuart Golf Links was designed by acclaimed American course architect Gil Hanse, who’s career has seen him entrusted with redesigns at Merion East, Winged Foot and Pinehurst No. 4 – which is quite the CV. Opened in 2009, it is one of a swath of new courses around Scotland that are giving the old guard a challenge in the rankings.
Fortrose & Rosemarkie has been host to some of the best National Championships there are and this is testament to the condition and layout of this wonderful true links golf course. The clubhouse is as hospitable as you will find anywhere in the world and we recommend trying the locally caught fish & chips if you have the chance.
