Brilliant experience, very different course. Looked and played like a Welsh mountain course by the sea. Not a tree or bush in sight. Course was very quiet the day we played. Welcoming Pro and members. Clubhouse had a lovely vibe. Will definitely play this one again! One word of warning, even on a still day there will be a sea breeze. Protects the course magnificently.
Brora is a traditional seaside links course, established in 1891. The course as it is now owes much to a visit by five-time Open Champion James Braid, whose golfing fingerprints are all over the Highlands and East Coast, in 1923, when he began his redesign work.
Brora Golf Course has some rather famous fans with the likes of Tom Watson saying "it was a wonderful links course...I'd like to challenge it again" and five-time Open Champion Peter Thomson adding "one of my favourite links is Brora on the Mory Firth...I pray it will continue and last as long as the world."
Testimonials like this make it easy to see why golfers have held Brora, for centuries, amongst one of the finest links courses in the Scottish Highlands and maybe even the world.
