Brora Golf Club

  9 Reviews

Lovely course in a great setting. Quite a few blind tee shots. Takes a bit of getting used to the sheep & cows wandering all over the place and the electric wires circling every green that are there to, presumably, keep the livestock off of them. Bit of a slow round due to being stuck behind 2 pedestrian 4 balls but it didn't really matter. Greens in great nick and the Golf Now Hot Deal price we paid was an absolute steal.

He would play this course again.

The bucket-listers can chase Royal Dornoch all they want. I'll take the 6,200-yard Brora instead. The front nine roams right along the sea, ending at the most scenic spot on the course, the par-3 ninth hole. The back nine returns to the clubhouse on slightly higher ground, so the water views are still present. Sheep and cattle share the fairways. They're the reason for the electric fences around the greens. A burn flows through multiple holes, keeping things interesting. As for playability, the rough in the dunes is demanding but fair. You can always find your ball. Brora is beautiful.

If you are up in the Highlands to play Dornoch, then you need to warm up at Brora. This is a delightful seaside links. The links play fast and firm. The par 3s are memorable and have about a 4 club difference. The par 5 eleventh with a burn in front of the green was memorable. The majority of the front nine plays along the sea and there is not any out of bounds. If you want/need to play from the beach, then you can.

Yes, you will play among livestock, yes the links is classic outward nine in one direction and inward nine the other; however, Brora is a charming seaside links with a nice variation in the length of holes. The back nine is the better of the two (despite being inland). Clubhouse was welcoming as well as the locals at the 19th hole. You can watch people come in from the clubhouse. Sunrises must be amazing here.

The pace of play was spectacular-just under 3 hours. Overshadowed by Dornoch, I would still recommend coming here-you won't regret it.

Worth the drive to Brora...mainly a walkers course ...tough to see the next fairway and where to land the ball but that's what makes it challenging...imperative to get a course guide book...can be windy so choose a calm day if possible.
Relax take your time and enjoy the course, scenery etc.

This is a great links couse as difficult s any other links course includiing some more expensive and well known ones.
The weather was bad, wind and rain so very testing.
Sharing the course with grazing sheep and cows adds to the interest too.

A great course and a great round of golf.
