THE HIGHLAND GOLF DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY STORY
What is Golf Highland?
Golf Highland was founded in 1999 when a group of like-minded members of various golf clubs across the north of Scotland came together with the aim of spreading awareness of the golfing delights to be discovered in the wild and wonderful area to the north of Inverness.
After an enthusiastic start, life got in the way and the group disbanded. It came back with a flourish in 2016 though, with the digital information age firmly established. Since then, this remarkable collective effort has been instrumental in drawing a great deal of attention – and visitors – to over 30 golf clubs in the Highland region.
Golf Highland is completely run by volunteers and supporters who give freely of their marketing skills and talents, for the love of The Highlands and golf.
What does Golf Highland Do?
This website has been professionally designed and developed as the major tool used by Golf Highland to showcase what’s on offer for golf enthusiasts of all ages and abilities in the bountiful golfer’s paradise that is The Highlands of Scotland.
The aim is to spread the word about the fascinating hidden golf courses waiting to be played that are tucked behind Munros, hidden in glens, hugging lochs or spread along sandy stretches of coast in this spectacular part of the UK.
The site also provides a database of information about the individual golf clubs and courses that belong to the Golf Highland collective, along with links to their respective official websites so you can explore their facilities and tee-time booking requirements in more detail.
Grand & Glorious Scottish Golf
If you’re planning a trip to The Highlands for business or pleasure don’t forget your golfing gear (though most of the clubs have hire equipment available).
Many road-trippers exploring the increasingly popular North Coast 500 route (Scotland’s equivalent of the USA’s Route 66) are using Golf Highland’s convenient collection to combine a unique golf experience with scenic sight-seeing.
Even if you’re an armchair traveller you can enjoy a virtual journey around the quirky and challenging Highland golf courses courtesy of the Golf Highland collaborative.
There’s more to the grand and glorious Scottish golfing tradition than St Andrews, Prestwick and Royal Troon – head north for a golfing Highland fling you’ll be talking about for years to come.
