In Their Words ...........
Skibo Castle is home to one of the world’s most prestigious and exclusive private members club. Industrialist Andrew Carnegie, one of history's greatest philanthropists, came to Skibo in 1898 and transformed the estate into what he rightly termed 'Heaven on Earth'.
At Skibo's heart lies the Carnegie Links, on the shores of the beautiful Dornoch Firth. The course is rated amongst the world's finest and played by some of the sport's best, designed by Donald Steel and Tom Mackenzie, offers the golfer a rare opportunity to play a links course which remains firm and fast. It requires a broad repertoire of shots and demands that any golfer, regardless of standard, is rewarded for thoughtful and skilful play rather than for power. In a wind, it will test even the mightiest of players. On your journey round this links course you will be immersed into exceptionally rare wildlife habitats which have been carefully retained and protected and are now managed to ensure their future. Birdlife abounds and with the sea on three sides and the hills of Sutherland and Ross-shire all around.
There are no tee times at Skibo, so members are free to play as and when the mood takes them. The Carnegie Links is ideal for both beginners finding their feet on the greens for the first time and accomplished golfers looking to perfect their swing. Members love the modern Highland luxury of the Skibo Clubhouse, which has views over both the Carnegie Links and the Dornoch Firth.
The Carnegie Links now offers limited access to non residents, with two 4 balls offered Monday through Friday during the summer months, Golfers also appreciate the fully-stocked Halfway House where they can partake of some light refreshments and perhaps even a wee tipple to fortify them for the return leg back to the Clubhouse. Non members can reserve one of the public tee times which includes an 18 hole round, as well as use of a locker for the day, access to the practice facilities and Halfway House, a three course lunch at the Clubhouse (excluding alcohol) and a gift bag to take away.
