Nestled in the breathtaking East End of Lochcarron, the Lochcarron Golf Club is a hidden treasure that golf enthusiasts won't want to miss. This members-only haven boasts a charming 9-hole parkland course that may appear short but offers a demanding challenge suited to golfers of all levels. With a warm and welcoming clubhouse, this club is a must-visit for those seeking both a good test of golf and a spectacular scenic walk.
Measuring 3605 yards for eighteen holes, this course is a delightful test of accuracy. The Standard Scratch Score and par for the course is 60, making it a unique and enjoyable experience. Each hole presents its own set of challenges, from avoiding the loch side on the first three holes to mastering the humpbacked greens at the seventh and sixteenth. The course will truly test your skills and character.
Playing at Lochcarron is an adventure in itself. Situated along the loch side, golfers are at the mercy of the ever-changing Highland winds. You could find yourself playing into the wind, downwind, and facing crosswinds all within the span of three holes. Plus, the first hole's appearance depends on whether the tide is in or out, adding to the unpredictability.
The greens at Lochcarron are a true delight. Although relatively small, they come with subtle breaks, borrows, and some significant swings. When summer rolls around, the speed of these greens becomes a genuine challenge that keeps players on their toes.
Established in 1908, Lochcarron Golf Club has a rich history that adds to its allure. The clubhouse offers more than just golf with a cosy cafe and a well-equipped pro shop, making it a perfect spot for a post-round chat and refreshments. The club also provides equipment hire, trolley hire, and club hire services, ensuring that every golfer has what they need for a memorable round.
If you're in the Highlands and seeking a golfing adventure surrounded by stunning natural beauty, Lochcarron Golf Club should be at the top of your list. Come for the golf, stay for the views, and leave with memories of a truly unique Highland golfing experience.
