Framed, as is Old Moray, by the Cairngorms range in the eastern Highlands on one side and the North Sea on the other, Nairn is an authentic links with a beautiful blend of gorse and sedge amid stunted pines buffeted by gusts from all sides. The course here is one of an astonishing number designed by Old Tom Morris in Scotland, and its outlines are still evident even after renovations by James Braid in the 1930s and more recently by legendary player and entrepreneur Ben Sayers. The bunkers show Braid's influence, both in form and in strategy—even accomplished contemporary players will be put to the test landing drives and planning second shots. The length has been kept sufficiently long to attract such events as the 1999 Walker Cup, in which Great Britain and Ireland came from behind to claim an upset victory over the US.

Decent track but I haven’t been really impressed. I have to admit that I played there right after four unforgettable rounds at Royal Dornoch and Castle Stuart the two prior days .... It’s a bit like having a lunch at a 3* Michelin restaurant followed by a dinner in your local bistro. It doesn’t mean that’s not good, but it’s just not the same world !

As soon as you drive up you know you are going to experience something special. As close to the Moray Firth as you can possibly get which as you can imagine will throw you some interesting conditions. Sitting in its own little micro climate (one of the lowest rainfall areas in Scotland) you can play all year. In my opinion the best conditioned links course bar none and the best putting surfaces again bar none. Nairn has that real members feel no commercialism here. The courses first seven holes run all along the Moray Firth ands its highly possible to end up in there on all holes so fingers crossed the tides out. Don't let the distance on the card fool you or you're in trouble before you start. Every hole out here is different and a new challenge. Usually a N/W prevailing wind and with the ninth at the furthest point you'll be glad of the turn. Several top quality holes but you'll always remember 12,13,14 that's for sure.
