In Their Words ...........
Reay Golf Club lies on the edge of Sandside Bay in the far north of Scotland and offers panoramic views of the Pentland Firth and North Atlantic from every hole on the course. It does take an effort to travel this far north but Reay certainly repays that effort with a classic links golfing experience. It’s hard to do better.
Some of James Braid's finest work is celebrated in this outpost in the far north of Scotland where the air is as clear as the Highland burn. This is the land where Braid weaved his magic amid classic seaside links and in mysterious Highland glens. The course is a true example of a links course, its exposed location and the typical challenging conditions call for real shot making, from punched long irons, little bump and runs to hitting under the wind. This is how the game started and what real golf is all about.
The Reay course at 5831 yards has the unique distinction of opening and closing, with a par three. Not a popular start on any course and at Reay the 235 yards first hole can be quite damaging to a medal score if you catch the trouble on the right of the tee but, safely negotiated, the next seven holes are interesting, varied and the best on the course. The two tiered 18th protected by it’s greenside bunkers provides a formidable finishing hole.
A modern clubhouse provides picturesque views overlooking the whole course and where a warm welcome can be assured to all visitors
