No 3 – Tain Golf Club

Tain, situated on the south shore of the Dornoch Firth, is part of the wonderful golfing menu in the Scottish Highlands. Royal Dornoch, Golspie and Brora are all in close proximity for the golfing visitor. It was in 1890 that Old Tom was counselled to weave his magic over the links. Only 15 holes could initially be constructed, then reduced to 12, and it was not until the 1894 season that sufficient finances were in place. The Club’s fortune is that so many of Tom’s original holes survive, either wholly or in part. These include the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 9th going out and, coming home, the 10th, 14th, and 15th.
