We have appointed Stuart Rennie of Rennie Design to assist us in improving the golf course. Stuart, who is based in Bishopbriggs, Glasgow, is no stranger to the Highlands, having played his junior golf in the area. He is currently working on projects at Blackpool, Cowglen, West Kilbridge and the new Torvean Golf Course, Inverness.
He will begin our project at the start of March appraising the 18 holes and our aim is to display a masterplan of proposed enhancements to the course by the time of the 4-day open at the start of July. Stuart is looking at all aspects of the course, from bunkers to tree management and from the length of the par 3s to improving safety on the course. More here on the appointment.
