Ladies Enjoy A Tour De Four(ce) In The Highlands

High 9s Pitlochry ladies tour

Our High 9s initiative recently attracted four members of Pitlochry Golf Club to tee up at four 9-hole courses in the Highlands.

Kay Fleming, Di Barbour, Louise Kelly and Ann Mailer embarked on the trip, which Ann labelled the Tour de Four(ce), after Kay had read about the High 9s on social media.

Ann said: “It was a brilliant idea.  Booking the four selected courses was made very easy by helpful members in every club and we could not have been made more welcome. We will de definitely be back.Again, thanks to all.

“The 9-hole courses allow golfers to enjoy a round in beautiful settings but still have time to explore other places of interest in the area or move on to golf pastures new that same day.

“We loved that. For example, we played two courses on Sunday and on Monday – after playing at Aigas Golf Club, we visited Beauly and spent a couple of hours that afternoon in a wonderful cafe and then the night at Chrialdon House which is a most fabulous B&B.”

The four courses visited were –

Abernethy Golf Club “We found all at the club very friendly, especially the kitchen staff and their food was delicious.

Portmahomack Golf ClubVery hospitable members, one member kindly gave Louise his electric cart to use on learning that she had injured her leg. The views as you go around this course are incredible. Well worth a visit.”

Bonar Bridge and Ardgay Golf Club “Warm welcome and tasty food. A very beautiful course with many challenging holes. If you are heading north from Tain, a detour to Bonar Bridge would be very rewarding.”

Aigas Golf Club “This is a little gem, beautifully laid out on former farmland. It must be wonderful to play this course in autumn when the foliage must be even more colourful. The owners were very welcoming and helpful.”

High 9s Tour

Donnie Swanson and his grandson, Baxter Macintosh (11), both members at Aigas Golf Club, recently undertook Golf Highland’s High 9s Tour, visiting nine 9-hole golf courses in the Highlands. Here is how they got on:

We signed up to the tour around the middle of June at Aigas Golf Club.

Bonar & Ardgay Golf Club
Bonar & Ardgay Golf Club

Myself, my son-in-law, Michael Macintosh, and my grandson, Baxter, had finished a round and were talking to Jessie, Mine Host, in the clubhouse.  She mentioned this new event aimed at encouraging golfers of all abilities to visit other 9-hole courses around the Highlands.

Baxter, having only taken up golf last year, showed more than a degree of interest, not only in the golf – he’s a competitor – but the geography as well.  With the school holidays imminent, I, being retired, decided we should give it a go. Michael works away a lot, so could not commit, but Baxter and I signed up. And so, the journey began.

1stJuly. A day at the beach for the ladies of the family and golf at Bonar & Ardgay for the boys in the morning. Portmahomack in the afternoon.

Two very contrasting courses, Bonar with its woodland fairways and the Port being wide open and dry. Both courses had good greens considering the scorching weather.

10thJuly. We made the long trek to Sconser, Isle of Skye Golf Club. Beautiful setting, nestled between mountain and sea. Peaceful, even the Raasay ferry runs in stealth mode.

Scoring did not match our previous outing. The course was too close to the sea for my hooks and slices. But we still had a wonderful time and I’m sure we will return.

18th& 19thJuly. Our mode of transport for our journey was my motorhome and this trip was to involve an overnight stop. We were heading for Lybster and then Durness.

Lybster is a short course with heather separating the fairways (I don’t enjoy playing out of heather), and ditches traversing them. All this led to a mediocre score for both of us. The clubhouse is unmanned but you are welcome to have a cup of tea or coffee and biscuit, paying via an honesty box. Having travelled far, we were looking for a little more sustenance and found a lovely café down by the harbour. Worth a visit.

We left Lybster and headed for Thurso and west to Durness. We overnighted there. Some lovely German tourists decided to reverse into the motorhome while I was booking in. No real damage done that I can tell. In the morning we played Durness. Again, unmanned with refreshments available using the honesty box system. Scoring not great but we did like the course. The rough looked demanding but was quite forgiving. The views on some holes were gorgeous with a backdrop of white sandy beaches. We returned home and by the time we got there we’d almost completed the NC500.

23rdJuly.Ullapool and Gairloch. Played Ullapool in the morning. Not our best, but, for once, I played better than Baxter. He got his revenge at Gairloch in the afternoon. Of course he arrives relaxed while I am stressed having to do all the driving. Cannot fault the scenery on both courses. As for the golf, that’s another story.

27thJuly. Abernethy, our final destination. Beautiful day, beautiful setting and almost beautiful golf, at least until the 7thwhen the wheels came off my game and I had to concede to Baxter once again, both on the day and on the Tour.

Overall, we would highly recommend the Tour. Contrasting courses in magical settings and meeting friendly people. We had a great time and look forward to trying again next year, when hopefully we will remember where we are going.

We would love to see a grandparent/grandchild competition. I mentioned it to Baxter who told me I would have to buck up as I am the weakest link!
