Review for Castle Stuart

Reviewer Score:


If I could choose one place to play golf forever, Castle Stuart would be on the shortlist. I am lucky enough to have played it 4 times this year, over 3 different days, and each time it was majestic.

The only thing is lacks is history - tails of Old Tom, old battles, Seve doing something magical - and you really shouldn't fault something just for being new, can you?

For me, short par 4s with strategy choices are the best holes in golf, and there's a plethora here to challenge you. The green complexes are superb, with lovely run-offs if you land it in the wrong place. And the framing of the greens - it felt like 17 infinity greens (it wasn't quite that, but not far off!) and one framed by the castle.

It is just superb, I can't recommend it enough.
