Brora is one of the most northerly courses in Britain and represents all the attributes of a traditional Scottish Highland links. Established in 1923 and designed by James Braid over 194 acres of Scottish links land, the design which came to be known as ‘Braid’s Plan’ has hardly been altered to this day and in recent years Brora has become a bit of a golfing mecca for golfing purists.
Add to the history the views of the sea and nearby beaches, burn water and vast amounts of gorse and it becomes quick to see why Brora is something of a links haven. There is even a railway which must be negotiated from the 10th tee!
Brora is best summed up by Five-time Open Champion Peter Thomson who said: “One of my favourite links is Brora on the Moray Firth, where the golfers share a precious piece of territory with a hundred or so woolly sheep. What could epitomise nature better than such a communion? I pray it will continue and last as long as the world.”
