Golf has been played in Lybster for 120 years. The present club was constituted in 1926 on ground which was previously used for golf.
The Wick Lybster railway, which was disbanded in 1945, passed though the course and the present clubhouse is the old ticket office. The route of the railway can be clearly seen from the course
At 2000 yards for its 9 holes Lybster is one of the shortest courses in the country but makes up for its lack of length by requiring accurate play. It is affiliated to the SGU. The course is adjacent to the main street of Lybster . Clubs and Trollies are available for visitors.
Lybster Golf Club welcomes visitors and the green fee of £15 per day provides good value for money.
