Celebrating 125 years on the links at Fortrose & Rosemarkie
A visit to Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club in the Highlands of
Scotland is your opportunity to play on one of the most unique
links courses in the United Kingdom.
To mark 125 years at the links, Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf
Club will be hosting the Loretto Scottish Boys & Girls Under-14
Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship from the 11 – 12 August 2013
in addition to two other national tournaments in what is an
historic year on the links.
Established in 1888 as a six-hole course, Fortrose &
Rosemarkie was later re-designed by the five times Open Champion
James Braid in 1932 and in addition to its proud history, the Club
offers members, their guests and visiting golfers fantastic
practice facilities which includes a 300-yard long practice area,
driving bays, 3-bay practice nets, golf ball machine, practice
bunkers, short game practice area (with green) in addition to the
real ‘gem’ in the course itself.
This unique Scottish Links Golf Course is situated amid stunning
scenery being just 15 miles from the City of Inverness, 30 minutes
from the nearest airport at Dalcross which is beside Castle Stuart
Golf Links and only 45 minutes from the world famous Royal Dornoch
The course lies out on a narrow peninsula named Chanonry Point,
just north of Inverness – jutting out into Rosemarkie Bay –
protecting the entrance to the Moray Firth. The road to the
lighthouse divides the course in two, with just enough land either
side to accommodate a 5,890-yard long golf course which is soon to
be extended to over 6000 yards.
What Fortrose & Rosemarkie may lack in yardage is more than
made up for with its quick greens, strategic bunkering, dense
island gorse and the proximity of the sea at nearly half the holes.
Playing to one’s handicap, especially with the wind up on this
exposed sliver of land is never easy.
