Tain has arguably one of the best settings of all the golf courses in Scotland. It overlooks the Dornoch Firth with the sea on one side and the backdrop of the mountains on the other.
Located in Ross-shire 9 miles south of Dornoch, home to Royal Dornoch. It is only 34 miles north of Inverness in a sheltered location, which ensures favourable weather for most of the year.
Tain Golf Course was designed by Tom Morris in 1989 and opened in 1890 with 15 holes.
It wasn't until 1894 that more land was acquired and the golf course extended to 18 holes and at that time it was called St Duthus Golf Club.
In 1911 the name was changed to Tain Golf Club and John Sutherland made later revisions to the course.
Tain golf course is a combination of links and heathland and demands some long carries over deep heather to the tight gorse lined fairways.
Tain Golf Club measures 6,404 yards from the white Medal tees and presents the golfer with and enjoyable but very stiff challenge and an ideal choice for a golf package in Scotland that includes the highland golf courses.
