Royal Dornoch Golf Club, Dornoch

4.8
#1 of 22 in Golf in Scottish Highlands
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. For Royal Dornoch Golf Club and beyond, use our Dornoch trip app to get the most from your Dornoch vacation.

    small hotel located on the tee of the ROYAL DORNOCH GOLF COURSE 1. The rooms are comfortable, tasteful very british, but unpretentious. Very good restaurant with view on the golf course. No Gym pool is a small Hotel!
