Enjoy a Relaxed Half Round

Whether you’re slipping in some golf while touring the Highlands or exploring the North Coast 500, visiting the area for business, or just dedicating yourself to the pleasure of a Scottish golfing holiday 9-hole courses are ideal for a casual, stress-free half-round.

Strolling a pleasant nine-hole course is far less taxing and time-consuming than traversing a full 18, giving you time to enjoy the scenery and concentrate on your technique. It also leaves you plenty of time to wet your whistle at the clubhouse and chat up the friendly locals.

That’s why Golf Highland picked out nine special 9-hole courses to advocate as their High9s Golf Tour. These courses – most of them 100 years old or more – may have only nine holes, but it’s a matter of quality, not quantity – and you can always go round twice!

Booking & Green Fees

All of the High9s courses welcome visiting golfers of all ages and abilities. Being relatively small clubs, they appreciate some advance warning, so it is best to book tee-off times in advance of a visit. In most cases this can be done online on the relevant club’s website (see links above), or you can telephone them.

Green fees for a round of nine holes vary, but average around £15-£20. In most cases hire clubs and trolleys are available. Fees are payable at the club house when you sign in, but some of these courses – such as Ullapool, Durness and Isle of Skye – trust visitors enough to use an honesty box at the entrance if they arrive when the clubhouse is closed.

Facilities include plenty of parking, changing rooms, practice areas and a café/bar where food is available throughout the day.
