No 2 – Royal Dornoch Golf Club

Royal Dornoch is revered across the world, a venue consistently ranked inside the top-15 of global standings. On the banks of the Dornoch Firth, the Championship Course presents a magical, engrossing challenge with glorious vistas from virtually every hole. Initially, there were loosely nine holes at Dornoch, with no greens, no fairways and merely stretches of links land closely cropped by animals such as cattle, sheep and rabbits. The Club invited Old Tom to visit Dornoch in 1886, make a survey of the links and lay out a more fully planned golf course – one that has stood the tests of time to this very day.
