Moray - Old Course
The Moray Golf Club was formed in 1889, although it is known that golf was played on open land adjacent to the present courses a number of years before that.
It is situated on the southern shores of the Moray of Firth, in a remarkably favorable climate. It is not unusual for golf to be played every day of the year. In recent years the club has played host to many championships, both amateur and professional, and numerous ‘stars’ from the professional world have visited the course before playing in the Open. Moreover, HRH the Duke of York has been a regular visitor.
The championship course has long been regarded as an excellent example of a traditional Scottish golf links, and like numerous links courses in Scotland (notably St. Andrews), the course starts and finishes within the town boundaries, and from most of the course excellent views across the Moray of Firth prevail.
The course is a seaside links, designed by Tom Morris, with gorse-lined fairways, deep revetted bunkers and grass covered dunes along the coastline.. The rolling links is easy on the legs and would suit all ages. There are also tees available for every caliber of golfer. It has been known for golf to be played all year round because of the excellent climate that the Moray Coast can boast. The course layout uses all the points of the compass, with each hole having its own identity.
