SCOTTISH OPEN HOST COURSE
Castle Stuart is the newest Championship Links Golf Course in the Scottish Highlands. Designed by the late Golf Visionary Mark Parsinen who saw it as his personal destiny to create a major golfing resort at Castle Stuart and the ‘Pebble Beach of the British Isles’.
After their highly acclaimed work at the Kingsbarns Links in Fife. Parsinen once again worked with fellow American Gil Hanse on Castle Stuart. Together they once again produced a modern, visually stunning, Championship course. The course opened for play in the summer of 2009 and just 18 months later staged the Scottish Open. This was the first time such a major European Tour golf event had been held in the Scottish Highlands.
Castle Stuart is a modern links Golf Course with great character. It was built on a magnificent piece of land which runs along an estuary with spectacular views overlooking the Moray Firth, has so far held the prestigious Scottish Open four times in 2011, 2012,-2013, and again in 2016. The Highland’s setting is simply stunning and the design of the course is magnificent with views over The Moray Firth to the Black Isle. Every hole on the course is memorable in one way or another. Beautifully scenic with perfect infinity greens and natural bunkers. A round of golf on these links is sure to live long in your memory.
The course design makes the most of some great elevation changes to add more character to a course that is renowned for always being kept in perfect condition. Add to that the very changeable weather elements that come in from the coast and you can expect a unique fun and challenging round of golf!.
The course is widely regarded as a contemporary classic among Scotland’s rich heritage of links courses,. Castle Stuart succeeds as a course that challenges the very best players in the world but is enjoyable and playable for every-day golfers of all abilities. The fairways are wide and generous so not too intimidating off the tee. No forced carries and plenty of safe or bail out options. Also, expect some risk or reward holes with those taking the braver line likely to be rewarded with easier approach shots into the infinite greens. The course looks stunning from every tee box.
After your pre-round warm-up on the superb range and huge putting green in front of the great Art Deco clubhouse, it’s a short walk to the first tee where you are greeted by a decent length par 4 with the estuary to contend with on your right and a lovely fairway stretching out in front of you.
