Brian Anderson's Top Tip

Close to the green

As a rule of thumb always try to putt when you can. If you can’t putt then chip and if you can’t chip then pitch. Play the low shot where ever possible.

Message from Alistair Risk, Club President

Recognised as probably the best example of the great James Braids course designs and certainly the one that has kept to the original vision of the games greatest architect, Brora hugs the coastline and commands breathtaking mountain and sea views just 20 minutes north of Royal Dornoch and an hour from Inverness. Five times Open Champion Peter Thomson rates Brora as “the best traditional links course in the world” while writers and players galore glory in its fabulous setting, its superb condition and the devilish challenges this hidden gem offers. Make sure you include this golfing treat in your Highland Golf Escape.

I look forward to welcoming you in 2015.

Alistair

There can be few better driving holes than the seventeenth at Brora. Braid designed the hole for two drawn shots; a drive into the narrow neck of the fairway, a second shot from the right hand side of the green. The bunker at the front of the green is  exquisitely situated. Consider a par four a shot gained.
