In Their Words ...........
Party laid out by James Braid, the course dates from 1875 and is divided into two by the Inverness to Wick railway line. With play increasing over the course, the crossing of the busy road became such a hazard that three new holes were opened, making the two very short par 3 holes redundant. This led to a new 9th hole, which previously shared a fairway with the 8th hole. This also created a new 10th and 11th hole, while the 2 redundant holes have been turned into practice holes for the juniors, with funding from Club Golf.
Peter Alliss having discovered Muir of Ord Golf Club whilst exploring the Highlands researching one of his many books... “The Muir of Ord Golf Club, set in the majestic Highlands, is indeed a hidden gem. The recent changes to the course, new clubhouse and other facilities have made it well worth a visit. Many clubs in Scotland, far more famous, get written about many times in a golfing year, so courses like Muir of Ord are sometimes 'put on one side'. This should not be allowed to happen! Go ahead, pay them a visit, tell them Peter Alliss sent you, you'll enjoy it!”
At the "19th hole", relax with a refreshing drink as you reflect on your experience and make a commitment to return as a visitor or become a member of this friendly club.
