A good day out! Staff very freindly and chatty, you do not feel rushed to leave like some golf clubs. Great food, great service. you could spend the whole day there after your game of golf. Only downside is the walk between the 12th-13th. :-)

We first played Castle Stuart in June, 2013 and returned for two rounds this time in October, 2014. It certainly didn't hurt that we had great weather, but I know we would have loved it in any case. The views are stunning and the course is great fun with a nice variety of holes. The caddies are great! We enjoyed... More

First time at Castle Stuart. I was playing with friends, courtesy of one of those friends who is part of the club. Having travelled from South East Asia to head to these links, I'd have to say it was more than worth the effort - depsite the fact that I'd pretty much forgotten how different links golf in Scotland is...

Words aren't adequate to describe this great golf links layout. It is very expensive, but it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to play one of the best courses on the planet, and home of the Scottish open which Phil M. won. Every hole worth at least 3 pictures. The staff was incredibly helpful and went out of their... More

Great design, good caddies and wonderful vistas. We had fine weather the day we played and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Can't wait to go back

Castle Stuart is a wonderful addition to northern Scotland golf scene. Fine course with wonderfully conditioned fairways and true greens. Caddies do a reasonable job and seem to know the distances quite well as long as you get an experienced caddie. The clubhouse was quite nice with good food and drink offerings and a clubby atmosphere. The course is a... More

Just returned from playing 2 rounds on 24th and 25th August (that is now 3 times I have played it). It benefits from stunningly beautiful views over the firth to the west, north and east. This is not a typical Scottish links, there are too many false fronts to the greens making it impossible in many cases to play the... More

Great Scottish Links Golf Course. As this was the first time we played the course, we were glad we had excellent caddies. this made all the difference between a memorable game and one to forget. the caddies experience was very important in helping us decide how and where to play the shot. I had a great time and a most... More

Breathtaking beauty and warm reception. Excellent practice facilities and very good caddies. We were lucky with the weather but I thought the course to be quite fair. It should be on anyone's golf itinerary in the Highlands

Castle Stuart was the second of our 6 golf courses during our visit in July. Here's what I'd say: it's a beautiful track, with some incredible holes on a course that is a cross between links and a more "traditional NA" layout. My son picked all the courses and while he loved the Kingsbarns and Castle Stuart layouts, I personally... More
