Durness - Sunday 22nd August

Today we were on THE NC500 MGPT TOUR 2022.
Fourth Stop:
Playing on one of the finest links golf courses in Scotland is a must for your golfing calendar.
The opening hole provides a breath taking challenge with the green nestling far below you and tucked into the corner and a burn to cross.
If your idea of finding a links golf course involves an adventure, remoteness, turquoise ocean & sandy beaches then Durness GC could well be the golf experience you have been looking for. Recently voted in 2020 by Golf Magazine USA – in its first ever World’s Top 50 / 9 Hole
Courses (12th) and in Golf World UK’s Top 100 Courses 2021 in GB and Ireland (65th) – your unforgettable golf journey can now begin.
The northern delights started at the Durness course, where Penn giggled at an opening hole that played like the first stage of an alpine ascent, with a fairway that might have come with carabiners… the closing par 3 over ocean spray to a green shelved atop black rocks was a stunning finisher, and making two there sent us down the coast from Durness at a gallop.
If you have been on the North Coast 500, we lie right on this famous route 57 miles north west of Lairg; with the closest main airport south east of us at Inverness.
Designed by three local golf enthusiasts – Lachie Ross, Ian Morrison and Francis Keith – and opened in 1988, Durness Golf Club nestles on Scotland’s north coast and is Britain’s most north westerly golf course on the mainland.
a 9 hole links, but with a second set of tees that provides a fine 18 hole experience, set against some of the most stunning landscape backdrops you will see in the golfing world.
Best shot was Topsy Allman who striped a hybrid down the 8th (best view hole).
Well done to Hannah Mclean who put it to longest drive for the ladies on the 12th hole! Very impressive!!
Best dressed today was Michael Bell who looked like he was sponsored by Under Armour!
