Far north in the Scottish Highlands is perhaps Scotland's finest links course, at The Royal Dornoch Golf Club, which celebrated 400 years of golf in 2016. Records have been found that date golf back here to 1616, but the current layout dates back to 1886, in a design by Tom Morris, which was later redesigned by Donald Ross. This would certainly be an Open venue, if it weren't for the lack of accommodations, and the relatively isolated area.
The course features huge elevated greens, surrounded by bunkers and ridges, certain to catch a poorly hit ball. It follows the classic links nature, by going out through the gorse and heather, and in along the shore. The 3rd and 4th holes have sloping fairways, that have to be reached diagonally from elevated tees, and the 14th is the most difficult hole at 459 yards and par 4. This is certainly a course to bring your camera, especially when the bright sun accents the deep blue sea, green grass and blooming yellow gorse. On a nice day, there are few courses in the world as scenic, and on a windy or wet Scottish day, there are few courses as difficult.
This course is ranked #14 in The 2015 Golf Magazine World Top 100 and ranked #2 in Golf Digest's World's 100 Greatest Courses ranking.
