In their Words…….
Located in the heart of the Highland capital, Inverness Golf Course is a splendid parkland course with tree lined fairways and generous well manicured greens. Established in 1883 and designed by George Smith and J J Fraser, with alterations made by the renowned course designer and Open Champion James Braid, the course provides an enjoyable and challenging test for any golfer. The Mill Burn poses a challenge at several holes.
This well presented course has a relatively simple opening hole at just over 300 yards, followed by a par three that is tightly guarded with bunkers. The tee shot at the next hole, the first of two par fives on the outward half, is best with a touch of draw, and then follows the toughest of par fours (458 yards) with the entrance to the green very narrow.
At only 305 yards, the 6th hole requires caution from the tee as a long drive may reach the burn that guards the green. Two more par threes have to be played before the outward half is completed, but at 184 yards and 196 yards they are not easy, particularly the 7th. The out-of-bounds fence is just a few yards left of the raised putting surface.
The 11th hole dog-legs slightly to the right while the 12th tee shot is played from an elevated position down into a valley. The 14th “Midmills” is a hole of exceptional quality. Dog-legging to the right, cut off too much from the tee and the green is shut out from view by tall trees. The burn plays its part in the second shot, flowing along the length of the fairway on the right as it narrows towards the green. At 475 yards, the long par four 18th brings you home (five for ladies) and is a demanding finish, especially into a north east breeze.
Our welcoming 19th hole at Inverness Golf Club offers a comfortable venue to relax with superb views over the course and surrounding area. Opened in November 1997, the clubhouse was comprehensively extended in 2013 when it was fully refurbished with new decor and furnishings. An upstairs lounge and dining room offers wonderful views of the course and surrounding areas. There is also a junior room and back bar on the upper level. Sky Sports is available for those wanting to catch up with the latest big sporting event.Inverness Golf Club
