The problem with lots of the best courses is they think your honoured to be there - and while that's true to a certain extent, you want to feel like they want you there - Castle Stuart does just that - I've played about 40 of the top 100 courses and the welcome given today was second to none -...

It's expensive, but it's sure worth it. One of the finest links courses I've ever played. Home of the Scottish Open recently. A number of holes play right along beautiful Moray Firth (w/ a look back @ Inverness). Great clubhouse & staff. Superb practice putting greens. Pray for good weather, as either the rain and/or wind will play havoc on... More

Booked three course Highland hat trick deal Played Castle Stuart as our first course. We were the last out on the course and had it to ourselves. Hired electric buggies - £20 each which was a little expensive - £8 more than at the other courses we played. The club house is very nice with great views over the Moray... More

The course is spectacular and the views breathtaking, but that won't surprise many familiar with this course. Where this place really excels is in the extra touches. Bare in mind you've likely paid three figures for your round here but unlike Gleneagles they don't fleece you everywhere else. From unlimited range balls, free trolleys and a free water bottle vending... More

Fine club house and friendly reception staff. Course has several tees so length can be varied, helpful in the generally strong winds. Course in good condition and with mostly fine views. Generally challenging and better suited to the player with a reasonable level of skill and experience. Expensive by local standards and let down as an overall experience by very... More

I had heard very good reports from friends and family playing this relatively new links course to the east of Inverness so the opportunity to play could not be missed. The layout is sensational with holes running alongside the Moray Firth in both the first and second nine. Holes carved out of the dunes some 100 to 200 feet above... More

What a fantastic course that should be played by everyone who loves to golf. As soon as you arrive, the staff are there to greet you, grab your clubs, introduce you to your caddies and give you your welcome gift. A very high quality establishment. The course was in great shape and the views are spectacular. The Caddie Master suggested... More

Least memorable of all the courses played in 2 week golf tour. Do not bother going out of your way to play here. If you happen to be in the Inverness area, keep going better and less expensive options nearby.

From the moment you arrive you know you are in an establishment of superb quality. This isn't just playing a round of golf. The staff are fantastic and guide through the clubhouse, ranges, course start. Everything is pristine. The course itself is terrific and a fitting venue for the Scottish Open. Finally the food and bar in the clubhouse are... More
