The name of few courses can stir the emotions the way that Royal Dornoch does. This Sutherland club is feted by golfers around the world keen to play in this timeless setting. Home to two 18-hole links courses, Royal Dornoch will test and thrill in equal measure.

The Championship course runs to over 6,700 spellbinding yards along the curving bay of the Dornoch Firth. Rolling fairways lead to inverted saucer-like elevated greens that were introduced by Old Tom Morris and can make approach shots a little challenging.

Treat Struie as a warm up to its big brother at your peril, it is a challenge in itself. This par 71 course will require an outing for all the clubs in the bag and depending on the mood of the west wind golfers will find it hard to play to their handicap.
