Type

Links Course

Although it is located North of the usual centres of golf in Scotland, Royal Dornoch has a devoted following, including Ben Crenshaw and Tom Watson, who made sure to get in a couple rounds here whenever they came to the country for the Open Championship. Students of golf in the US revere the club for having launched Donald Ross on the career that had such an influence on American course design; Ross was the professional and greenkeeper at Royal Dornoch in the late 1800's. There is evidence for golf at Royal Dornoch as early as the 1600s, though it wasn't until 1886 that the first eighteen were clearly laid out by Old Tom Morris. Elevated, "plateau" greens are one of the course's defining features, which Ross later made famous with his design of Pinehurst #2.

Royal dornoch golf club post image
ROYAL DORNOCH INSTALLS LASTING TRIBUTE TO FORMER PRESIDENT A new bench has been installed at Royal Dornoch Golf Club in memory of former club president Dennis Bethune. Dennis’s widow Rena was the first to use the bench, which has been placed at the corner of the yellow and red tees of ‘Hilton’, the 5th hole of the Championship Course, her husband’s favourite. It is hoped members will take time to stop and enjoy the view, just as Dennis did many times. During an association with the club that lasted more than six decades, Dennis, who passed away last year, served as club captain from 1987-1989 and as president from 2009
