Alness Golf Club is located on the shores of the picturesque Cromarty Firth and is only a 20-mile drive north of Inverness International Airport. The Alness golf course has been around since 1904 and has undergone some significant changes in the last 100 years. The most significant was the 1997 extension from nine to 18 holes. At 5,013 yards, the golf course accommodates a range of skill levels. Every golfer will love No. 14, arguably the most beautiful hole on Alness. Its two fairway and two green bunkers also means Alness is a tough test of golf. The Alness Golf Club facility includes a pro shop and a clubhouse. Lessons are available.

Picturesque, Challenging and friendly

Alness Golf Club in my opinion is the most friendly and challenging course in Ross-shire. Beautifully manicured greens and a tight fairways really makes the course taxing but enjoyable. Beautiful views from the 9th tee looking all the way down the Cromarty Firth with all the Cruise Liners only a couple of miles away and the view from the 14th is a joy even though the following drive of that said hole may not be so enjoyable. Heartily recommend Alness to locals and tourists alike

Perfect weather

A thoughful course

The course was short, hilly and technical due to its narrow fairways, small greens and tight driving holes. Its hard to be certain of the lines from the tee as some are deceptive and narrow looking. Greens in excellent condition with few but well placed bunkering. Many holes leave you wondering how to keep the ball in play, which we liked as a test. If you like to lash a driver off the tee you will not get the best from this course. Give it respect and you will enjoy it more.
