About: Loch Ness Golf Course was opened in June of 1996 and has gained a reputation as an excellent test of golf for players of all abilities. With generous fairways and large greens you may be fooled into thinking that the course was easy but the putting surfaces are some of the best in the Highlands and have developed both subtle and obvious borrows that mean you have to place your ball in the correct position on the fairway to attack the flags.Under the expert guidance of Head Greenkeeper Raymond Houston, who also built the course, small improvements have been made each year so that the course moves on at a pace that guarantees the its excellent condition as well as providing new challenges.

The signature hole is the 14 th and is only 76 yards long, but there is nothing between the green and the tee except a deep gully with a burn at the bottom so it is not for the faint hearted!

The 2nd hole is the longest at over 550 yards from the medal tees and is a true 3 shotter as you also have several ditches and burns to contend with. The course has a mixture of short and long par 4’s, reachable par 5’s and testing par 3’s offering something for everyone, and even if the golf is not up to scratch the views are of Inverness, the Moray Firth and the surrounding hills are truly outstanding.
