One of Scotland’s best kept secrets, until the 1994 British Amateur and the 1999 Walker Cup brought the course more notoriety. Set among great stands of gorse and heather, it provides a magnificent challenge, with wonderful greens, as firm and fast as anywhere. Many think the greens at Nairn are the best in Scotland! Andrew Simpson laid out the original course in 1887, which was then extended by a plan of Old Tom Morris. The present layout owes most to James Braid, who made major improvements, and created a course that now is considered a must for those visiting the Highlands. The course is a par 72, and stretches to 6556 yards. Handicap restrictions are 28 for gents, and 36 for ladies. Carts (here called "caddie cars") are occasionally available for hire, and caddies MUST be booked in advance. Ask to visit the fascinating history wing of the clubhouse with the spectacular collection of golf memorabilia. Nairn GC is located on Seabank Road in Nairn.
