Golf Course Review

The Moray Golf Club is located in the former port and fishing town of Lossiemouth, Moray, Scotland. The course sits on the North Sea coast, beside Lossiemouth West Beach, and offers spectacular views of the Moray Firth.

Moray Golf Club Early History

There are two courses on offer: The Old or Lossiemouth and the New. The Old Course (Lossiemouth) was known as one of the narrowest in Scotland due to the thick gorse bordering its fairways. In more recent times, it has been slowly repealed. It was laid out by Old Tom Morris and opened for play on March 30, 1889. The course is played as a single loop with the front nine playing away from the beach and more inland. The back nine plays on the lower ground near the Firth and back to the clubhouse.

The New Course was laid out by Henry Cotton and opened in 1979.

Moray Golf Club & Whisky

The club has a strong connection with distillers. Many early members worked in the industry and the club purchased whiskey by the hogshead (230-250 litres). The club whiskey was Glen Grant, then Macallan, and is now Glen Moray.
