Muir of Ord Golf Club

Muir of Ord Golf ClubSituated roughly 15 miles from Inverness and six miles from Dingwall, Muir of Ord is one of the region's hidden gems.

The club boasts bar and catering facilities as well as a changing area and well-stocked pro shop, but the main attraction is the 5,542-yard par 68 course.

Designed in part by James Braid, the layout offers a mixture of heathland and moorland and has been lengthened considerably since it opened in 1875.

A number of new holes have also been added to avoid the Inverness to Wick railway line which used to impact on several holes on the course.

Muir of Ord Golf ClubWhile the front nine offers a range of challenges – including split-level and tiered greens at the 7th and 9th respectively – you must wait until the back nine to reach the course's signature hole.

Known as one of the toughest par threes in the region, the 12th requires an accurate shot from the elevated tee. With woods on the left, heather on the right and a green protected by a bunker and a ditch, you'll have your work cut out if you miss the putting surface with your tee shot.

Those who struggled on 12 will fare no better at the stroke index one 15th. It takes a very good tee shot to avoid the fairway bunker at this 478-yard par five, while your round could still come to grief if you hit your approach shot too far left and end up on the railway line.

At the end of a round, players can enjoy anything from bacon rolls to a three-course meal in the clubhouse, while a range of accommodation options lie close by for those hoping to play-and-stay.
