Welcoming our Belgian friends…
The ladies had an unusual delay to the start of their Thursday game this week. Some friendly touring Belgians asked to play the first hole as one of 50 challenges on their trip around the Highlands…we were only too happy to oblige!
A nice set up…
Highland Council ECS Director’s Cup 2017
An amazing day with beautiful weather greeted all the players of this year’s Directors Cup. This is an event run by the Highland Council and it’s open to all present and past Care and Learning Service and Highlife Highland employees and their partners. This is a superb opportunity to show our course off to a new audience and we received many comments from the players complimenting our course, clubhouse and food.
Thanks to everyone who participated, to Thomas who went above and beyond, cutting the greens prior to play, to Sharon and her trusty crew who laid on lovely food, to Jean and Rona who organised the fun competitions and prizes, and to June and Karen who organised the event.
Looking forward to next year’s competition at Brora.
Course Closed – Monday 24th July until 3pm

Thanks to Thomas, Dave and Roddie who maintain our excellent greens and course continuously throughout the year.
Thanks also to everyone who gives extra help in any way either on the course or in the clubhouse. Many of us lend a hand in some way or another, and we couldn’t run the club or the competitions or social occasions without you. Thanks too to Sharon and her helpers for keeping us all well fed and watered.
Looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
Here are some reminders of the day…
Ladies Open 3rd June 2017 – Full Report is now ready…please see the Ladies Open 2017 page on this site.
Ladies Come and Try Day – 14th May 2017
Thanks to everyone who came and also to our glamourous assistant (Ank) today…it was a super day and we hope you enjoyed it. The six ladies who came along were treated to a free lesson in putting, chipping and pitching by our two PGA qualified level 1 coaches, June Miller and Karen Starr. Here are one or two photos of the day…more on the ladies noticeboard…
2017 Flag Day – Thanks to all who joined us for a sun-kissed Flag Day event on Sat 25th March. Great to see folk again and renew our camaraderie. At these times, especially after a break between events, we remember how much we appreciate each other’s company and what a great wee club we have. The course was in great condition and the work continues to keep improving it. Fab food awaited us at the clubhouse to round off our day and the honour and glory for reaching the 18th Fairway in his allotted number of strokes went to Simon MacKenzie…well done Simon.
New Year 2017 – 9 hole stableford
Thanks to all who took part and contributed in any way to our super start to the New Year. If your name is MacKenzie, or you are related to someone of that name, it seems you had a head start over the rest of us today, Ian took home the honour and glory, but well done to everyone else too!
Here are a few snaps for you…
There’s lots still going on at the club, including the men’s winter league and the ladies winter eclectic. Keep an eye on this News page for updates on our goings on.
