Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club is a James Braid design that measures nearly 6,000 yards from the tips. It's not long, but the golf course's small, deceptive greens and strategically placed bunkers will keep things interesting. Players will also have to reckon with the public road dissecting the course, the proximity of the sea to eight of the holes and the thick swaths of gorse that punish wayward shots. The par-5 fourth hole is one to watch out for, arguably the toughest challenge on the course.

Simply Superb

Played for the first time today and from start to finish loved the golf club. The course is excellent, not too long but with many tight fairways that need placement more than length, greens in excellent condition and the scenery is simply stunning, we were lucky enough to see dolphins walking onto the 5th green! Clubshop is super stocked given it's size and the pro shop staff and clubhouse staff were so friendly and helpful. Would love to play again!

Stunning

Brilliant course in excellent condition. Stunning location with some tight holes which means you need to be accurate off the tee. A true links course which is well worth a visit for anyone local or visiting the area.

Wonderful old links

Researching the oldest courses in Scotland I found this one, which only claims the age of its current layout from the 1880s, but has evidence of play as far back as 1702, making it one of the very earliest golfing grounds. The spit of land is a textbook links site.

Got a great deal through GolfNow (£18 for early afternoon in June!) which made the friendly and helpful pro shake his head ruefully. Practice ground across the road, basic but serviceable.

The course is tight with lots of gorse. A couple of blind shots, but otherwise it's pretty clear where you should hit it, though my own success at that was, shall we say, intermittent.

Beautiful spot on charming & scenic Black Isle,. The course was in good shape and fun, an interesting layout with a real sense of history. Didn't see any Moray Firth dolphins, but otherwise had a splendid time.

Highly recommended.

Well worth a visit

A real hidden gem with breathtaking views and some lovely holes. Able to be enjoyed by everyone but still throw up some challenges. Don't pass it by - you won't regret it!

Where else would you rather be ?

Sunshine, warmth, light winds - where else would you rather be ? Scotland like this is the best place in the world ! We have played here before and have always enjoyed the course, club and people. Previously the greens were very fast and firm but at the moment they're much more playable which resulted in my excellant score. If you're up here or are palnning a trip - do yourself a favour and come and play this absolute gem.

Great James Braid Course

Good and well looked after course. Bit "up and down" in places but some really interesting holes. On a sunny day the view would be stunning.

Beautiful course,beautiful views

Straight hitting off the tee essential as gorse abundant and conditions often windy.Short course,easily walked although buggies available for hire.Typical Scottish links,bunkers,gorse & wind the main hazards.Views over the Firth to Fort George & snow capped mountains are beautiful. Nice welcoming clubhouse,local members very friendly .Definitely a five star experience
