Nestling on the shores of the Moray Firth this Traditional Scottish Golf Links Course was created from a Highland wilderness of gorse and heather, and tests the talents of professional and amateur alike. Founded in 1887, it is now one of the best courses in Scotland, and has hosted a large number of important championships.
The Nairn Golf Club has now been awarded No 9 in the definitive list of the Top 100 Courses in Scotland 2011.
"Nairn is a classic, traditional out-and-back links, and the opening half a dozen holes along the coast rival anything at more illustrious Scottish courses" said Jock Howard, commissioning editor at Golf World. "The putting surfaces are in immaculate condition and the variety of the examination never gets boring. I can't think of anywhere I would rather be on a sleepy summer afternoon."
Ranked number 9, The Nairn Golf Club received high marks from the report's illustrious panel of judges, which included three-times Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher, Major winner Sandy Lyle, Ryder Cup player Andrew Coltart and broadcasters Ewen Murray and Andrew Cotter. Also marking Scotland's best were amateur legend and the driving force behind PowerPlayGolf Peter McEvoy, Women's British Open champion Catriona Matthew and golf course designer David McLay Kidd.
