Royal Dornoch Golf Club, Dornoch
(4.7/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Featuring two 18-hole courses, Royal Dornoch Golf Club receives praise as one of the world's finest golf courses. Perhaps surprisingly, the golf club sits in a remote location and typically isn't used for major golf tournaments. The sandy shore and grassy lawns make for interesting, challenging out-and-back layouts, and many of the greens are built on raised platforms. Professionals like American golf writer Herb Warren Wind hold the course in high regard. To visit Royal Dornoch Golf Club on your trip to Dornoch, use our Dornoch vacation planner.

  • As a member of a golf club in England I asked to enter the club and was made most welcome. Due to existing functions we were unable to take dinner but booked and ebnjoyed a first class lunch. 
  • Let's start withe most important observation: best onion rings EVER delivered by a server who told my buddy to "man up." That made the nearly 4 hour drive to the course worth every minute. The weather...  more »

  • I played Royal Dornoch twice in 2004 with a group of twenty. The first round shot 79 with a rental set. (My clubs showed up a day later) During the first round, my playing partner made an Ace on #11. The bar tab for 20 after with our "caddies" was large. The second round a day later after Brora, was fantastic, rained straight down, gorse blooming a brilliant yellow, shot 76 and didn't want to leave. If I could play one course every day for the rest of my life it would be Royal Dornoch. Our caddies were brilliant!
  • Unrivalled quality and history. Welcoming staff, links golf at its very best
  • One of the top courses in the world for a reason. Magical place.
  • Beautiful course and very helpful and funny caddie. It was a pleasure to play this course and meet Harry. Hope to return someday.
  • Absolutely fantastic golf!
