Architect James Braid originally designed a nine-hole golf course at Muir of Ord Golf Club, but it's since been extended to 18. Today Muir of Ord is a heathland course with snug fairways and difficult greens that demand accuracy.

The club is open to visitors, and the facility includes a bar and changing rooms. Clubs are available for rent.

For golfers looking to do a little warm-up before their round, there's a practice area and putting green.

A true gem of a course

Played this course for the second time and it was great, just like the first time. I just wish I stayed in Muir of Ord to be able to play this course every day.
The staff could not be friendlier nor more helpful.
The terrain makes it a true test of golf, interesting breaks on lots of greens.
We will be back.......

Well worth a visit

Really a gem of a course, first three holes are a bit tight but opens up to some lovely (and a few quirky) holes. Condition of course was fabulous and greens running true. Scenery is also beautiful around the course.Lovely little clubhouse with friendly staff in shop and clubhouse. Will definitely return.

Little Gem

Lovely course to play. After the first 4 holes the course really is great. Each hole is unique and lots of elevation changes. Amazing value...definitely one to play if you are in the area.

Great wee course even when the greens are frozen

I played early in the morning on a very cold December day. Play was off the normal tees and normal greens. Only restriction was not to hit off the fairways. This was great value at £10 and is a great wee course. Layout is good but not too challenging. Only problem was chipping onto frozen greens is a bit of a lottery - but that isn't a surprise. I'd strongly recommend this course at any time of the year if you are staying anywhere near Inverness.

Short But Testy

First time playing which happened to be after the area had snow, rain, and frost the previous week. There are only a few challenging holes of any real distance. Greens were quite slow and bumpy due to weather from previous week. The majority of holes are not particularly challenging - if you know where to hit your tee shots! I enjoyed the course layout so much that I played again one week later after the course had dried out and greens were much faster and true. Now with a little "course knowledge", I was able to drop 11 strokes from the previous round. Others have said the course layout is difficult to follow, but I had no problem using the course map on the back of the scorecard. Highly recommend.

Best of Ord

Played this course twice last year.
Couldn't wait to play it again and was not disappointed. Staff were very nice and had a great game on a great course. Well laid out and some great feature holes. A joy to play here.
Will be back soon.

Wet weather
Used cart

Even when very wet this course played well

We arrived in pouring rain and requested a delay to our booked start time. That was immediately accepted. We waited for the weather to abate enough to go out and by that time a buggy was available. We shared some entertaining conversations with the locals whilst waiting. The rain was incessant but the course still played well with little standing water anywhere. Although soaked to the skin the golf was enjoyable and thoroughly worth the green fee. Recommend to anyone in the area, but take care to pick your lines from the tee carefully!

Short but challening which suited my game

First time playing here as I was in the area and really enjoyed it. First four holes are set out well to get you into your game and no need for driver, all about being straight rather than long. Driver came out later on slightly longer holes.
Was obvious it had been raining heavy in recent days as on occasions underfoot conditions were a little wet but nothing that bothered me.
Greens were really good and easy to stop the ball, pity my putting was woeful even on the practice green afterwards.
I would easy return to play again hopefully on a deal though, didn't mind paying full price as I really enjoyed the course and layout.

Friendly course, quite hilly

An enjoyable course, fairly good condition and fun. Good value for the money. It is quite hilly and a number of fairways are very close to each other. Keep your eyes open. Power carts are available if hills are an issue for you.

Very enjoyable

Shortish course that has some great quirky holes (12th,13th) and some scary shots where you are in danger of variously - hitting a train, firing the ball onto the main road or braining a cow - well you are if you're me. Make sure you have one of their tasty bacon rolls before/after you play.
Staff very welcoming; fairways still recovering from a difficult winter when we played (early May '17).

Great Heathland course

I was recommended to play here by the Pro at Fortrose and Rosemarkie gc.
Definitely worthwhile a great test of golf not to long but demanding tee shots along the rail line. Small greens makes your approach a challenge protected by bunkers with plenty of sand. Winter golf doesn't get any better as the condition was great. Didn't get to try the facility's as had to dart but if it was as friendly as the pro the it wouldn't be half bad. I will definitely be back to avenge the beating my son handed me.

Muir of Ord

A really nice short par 68 course. Some tight tee to fairway holes with out of bounds on to a main road and railway line a various points on the course. Windy at times making some of the lengthy holes a challenge. Back to back par 3s can also be emotional.
