Golf Course Review

Muir of Ord Golf Club is an 18 hole, James Braid designed heathland/ moorland golf course 15 miles from Inverness, Highland, Scotland. The course provides stunning views of Ben Wyvis, Beauly Firth and the hills above Loch Ness. The Inverness to Wick and Kyle of Lochalsh railway line runs through the course and the Great North Rd alongside it. The course is essentially fit into 3 distinct parcels of land.

A 9 hole course known as The Muir was laid out in 1875 by Alexander MacHardy. It would be James Braid however in the 1920s who would make the course what it is today. He bunkered the original 9 hole course and added another 9. The 18 hole course opened for play in September 1927.

In 1996, the club purchased additional land which was used for the 9th, 10th and 11th holes with the old 16th and 17th being turned into a practice area. This removed the need to cross and indeed play across the Great North Road.

Muir of Ord Golf Club is an inland heathland where links golf reigns supreme. With Castle Stuart, Carnegie Links at Skibo Castle and Royal Dornoch headlining and James Braid's masterpiece at Brora nearby, most will pass on Muir of Ord Golf Club. It is, however, a change from what is ordinary with so many links nearby.
