Review for Nairn (Championship)

Reviewer Score:


I couldn't help but contrast the experience of playing Castle Stuart, which we had the day before, and Nairn. Castle Stuart was like a bright new shiny penny and Nairn seemed like the dark keeper of the flame. Well, that all seems a bit flamboyant, so let me just say this: I loved Nairn. It is a true championship course (reflected in the many great championships played there). Unlike another reviewer, I found no bad holes, and we had the pleasure of watching a fellow competitor play two from the beach and still make bogey. Nairn offers a sturdy test with holes that are challenging in the extreme, punctuated by some real risk/reward types (eagle possibilities, depending on the wind). Among the Highlands courses we played, I rate it only behind Royal Dornoch and not by much. If you visit, play them both. Twice. BGD
