The Struie course shares with the Championship Course the incredible natural landscape that defines golf in Dornoch and the tranquillity of this unspoilt northerly location. The Struie course may always be the Championship course’s little sister, but she has now blossomed into mature womanhood as a course worthy of considerable respect in her own right. In 2011 Golf Digest ranked the Struie as 50th best links course in the Great Britain and Ireland.
The Struie is a relatively flat course played over links land that allows considerable roll when you keep your ball in the fairway. The rough can be fairly forgiving of errant shots but several holes are also lined with deep gorse. The bunkers are appropriately, even strategically, placed and the greens all putt fast and true. The five greens of new holes constructed at the turn of the century are exceptionally large, moderately undulating and are an adventure to putt.
While the Championship course offers views of the sea and Tarbetness the Struie provides the hills to the west and the Royal Burgh of Dornoch with the cathedral as the central point.
The 18 holes each of character and challenge can be enjoyed by the average player, but offer repeated and fresh challenge to the expert to make a good score.
