Established in 1891, Brora Golf Club is the most northerly golf memorial to James Braid in his native Scotland.
The golf course design is recognised as being one of Braid's finest pieces of work. The green staff work tirelessly to preserve the original design while presenting a course that is regularly acclaimed for its quality – it is the perfect balance between challenge and fun in a breathtaking setting!
Golfers will derive equal pleasure and satisfaction from Brora's 6211 yards. Here you can enjoy the mixture of bent grass and beach sand, burn water and gorse. There is even a railway which comes into play from the 10th tee.
With the exception of the short 6th, the outward nine holes follow the contour of Kintradwell Bay in the foreground, with a backdrop of the Sutherland foothills from Ben Bhraggie to the west, away to the Ord of Caithness in the north-east.
The inward nine holes follow the fence line of the bordering croft land, with out of bounds to concentrate the mind. Of the two short holes, the delightful 13th – Snake – winds back towards the sea, while the 18th contains all the concerns of protecting a score against a bunkered green and a two hundred-yard carry, all under the scrutiny of the clubhouse windows!
Refreshments are available from the bar, with meals available from the restaurant, while the pro shop will take care of all your golfing needs.
Highland membership is £175 per year and available to anyone who is a member of another Highland golf club.
Brora Golf Club also has a number of special offers, including: spring and autumn rates £45; juniors under 18 play free if accompanied by a full-paying adult – this is strictly one junior per adult, a second junior would pay 50%.
