Thurso Golf Club

"Thurso Golf Club, the most northerly 18-hole course on the British mainland.

The tree lined parkland course offers golfers of all abilities an excellent

challenge. There are lush fairways, generous well-manicured greens as well as

some beautiful whin bushes which you do not want to go in! After your round,

you can enjoy a refreshing drink in their comfortable lounge bar which boasts

magnificent views over the course.

The present course was established as a 9-hole in 1921 and was extended to

18 holes in 1963. Over 100,000 trees have been planted which gives the

course a parkland feel. Because it is located on a hill above Thurso, several

holes are tough tests into a prevailing wind. The signature hole is the 13th

over a burn with heather on the left and the rough on the right. The green is

drivable but with a strong wind against the fairway is sometimes out of reach.

The 15th green has a fine view of the Pentland Firth, Orkney and Dunnet Head"
