The Highlands – Brora – 6110 yds – Par 69
It has often been said that there are two very good reasons to visit Brora in the north of Scotland. The first is the famous distillery that produces Clynelish Malt Whisky and the second the equally famous fishing tackle shop in the town. But there is a third, and some believe and even more compelling reason to venture into this rather remote part of Surtherland – the links of the Brora Golf Club.
Apart from being a perfect base for tour of the Highlands of Scotland, Brora boasts one of the great hidden gems of Scottish golf. There are few places with more natural and traditional golf than this glorious spot north even of Royal Dornoch.
Old Tom Morris laid out the original course in 1891 but James Braid was called in to upgrade the layout in the 1920s and the course remains very much as the five-time Open Champion left it.
