Hole 1: Culcabock

Friendly opening par 4 with a generous fairway.

 

Tip:- Don’t be too greedy off the tee.

Hole 2: Quarry

Inverness Golf Club Hole 2 full

Clever little par 3 well bunkered with trouble left.

 

Tip:- Take enough club from the tee and don’t miss left.

Hole 3: Drakies

Inverness Golf Club Hole 3 full

Short par 5 but tree lined left and right. Good tee shot can set you up for a birdie, but be aware out of bounds looms tight left and rear of the green.

Tip:-

Might be worth a lay up with 2nd shot as bunkers left and right short of the green are troublesome.

Hole 4: Whins

Inverness Golf Club Hole 4 full

Demanding par 4 (5 for the ladies) because of its length and narrow entrance to the green. Having played a good tee shot you may still have to settle for dropping a shot.

Tip:- Tee shot important to avoid the double bunkers on the right which encroach the hole.

Hole 5: Pump

Inverness Golf Club Hole 5 full
Another short par 5, great possibility for birdie.

Tip:- You must avoid the bunker off the tee left and right for the longer hitters.

Hole 6: Wyvis


Short par 4, but tricky. Tee shot is blind and the approach to the green is over water.

Tip:- Select a club for 220 yards maximum. The burn is 285 yards off the tee. Favour right of centre and allow for a considerable forward roll. Try to achieve 80 yard approach shot to allow maximum spin control.

Hole 7: Spion Kop

Inverness Golf Club Hole 7 full
Fantastic par 3 typical target golf hole. With out of bounds tight left.
Tip:- Club up as it is easy to be short on uphill target.

Hole 8: Meadows

Inverness Golf Club Hole 8 full
Classic dog leg to the left with water on the right (tee shot for ladies over water) tight well-bunkered green with out of bounds 3 yards left of the green.

Tip:- Hit plenty club to try and position your tee shot on right side of the fairway to open up the green.

Hole 9: Kellys Copse

Inverness Golf Club Hole 9 full
Another demanding par 3 over water with a difficult bunker front right.

Tip:- balls landing front right will catch severe slope, so club up!

Hole 10: Kingsmills


Good par 4. Great driving hole. Well positioned bunkers off the tee which must be avoided if you are to reach the green in par. Out of bounds skirts the full length of the hole.

Tip:- favour right side of fairway but be aware of out of bounds tight left of green with approach shot.

Hole 11: Seven Sisters


Classic par 4 with gentle dog leg left to right. Perfectly positioned bunker on right side of fairway. Big driving hole.

Tip:- avoid bunker right with a sensible tee shot through club selection, even if it makes your 2nd shot club selection longer. It is easier to make par from a pitch and putt than when recovering from a fairway bunker.

Hole 12: Kessock Bridge

Inverness Golf Club Hole 12 full
Fantastic par 4 Tight dogleg from left to right. Whins and trees on right hand bank with tall poplars on left side of fairway.

Tip:- Play conservatively off forward tee position as fairway narrows with left hand poplars encroaching. Off medal tee driver is the only club.

Hole 13: Diriebught

Inverness Golf Club Hole 13 full

Another tough Par 3 well guarded with bunkers.
Tip: Club up again!

Hole 14: Midmills

Inverness Golf Club Hole 14 full
One of our stand out holes and a tough Par 4 (Par 5 for Ladies) with a dog-leg left to right. For longer hitters a drive with a fade can put you in ideal position for a mid iron onto the tight green. Beware of out of bounds just on the right of the fairway stretching all the way from the tee to the green.
Tip: a par or a bogey is never a bad score on this hole.

Hole 15: Curling Pond

Inverness Golf Club Hole 15 full
A fairly short par 3 with a narrow green, bunkering to the left and a right slope with out of bounds lurking.
Tip: Trust your swing. Tough hole.

Hole 16: Leys

Inverness Golf Club Hole 16 full
Blind tee shot. Medium length par 4 with generous fairway and plateau green.

Tip:- Favour left side of the fairway off the tee. Do not fall victim to the steep slope at the front of the green. Club up.

Hole 17: Ridge

Inverness Golf Club Hole 17 full
Short par 4 one of the few easier holes on the back 9 but still tricky with tight tee shot.

Tip:- Important to see pin position on green in relationship to bunkers. Narrow entrance, worth a walk to the top of the hill.

Hole 18: Deoch an Doruis

Inverness Golf Club Hole 18 full
Long par 4 to bring you home (5 for the ladies) demanding tee shot with well bunkered approach shot. Testing hole when into a north east breeze

Tip:- Left centre gives you the best approach but beware of large bunker on the left on your tee shot.

Inverness Golf Course

Highland Golf Course

Located in the heart of the Highland capital, Inverness Golf Course is a splendid parkland course with tree lined fairways and generous well manicured greens. Established in 1883 and designed by George Smith and J J Fraser, with alterations made by the renowned course designer and Open Champion James Braid, the course provides an enjoyable and challenging test for any golfer. The Mill Burn poses a challenge at several holes.

Parkland Golf at its finest

Inverness Golf Course is a well presented course with a relatively simple opening hole at just over 300 yards, followed by a par three that is tightly guarded with bunkers. The tee shot at the next hole, the first of two par fives on the outward half, is best with a touch of draw, and then follows the toughest of par fours (458 yards) with the entrance to the green very narrow. At only 305 yards, the 6th hole requires caution from the tee as a long drive may reach the burn that guards the green. Two more par threes have to be played before the outward half is completed, but at 184 yards and 196 yards they are not easy, particularly the 7th. The out-of-bounds fence is just a few yards left of the raised putting surface.

Feature Holes

The 11th hole dog-legs slightly to the right while the 12th tee shot is played from an elevated position down into a valley. The 14th “Midmills” is a hole of exceptional quality. Dog-legging to the right, cut off too much from the tee and the green is shut out from view by tall trees. The burn plays its part in the second shot, flowing along the length of the fairway on the right as it narrows towards the green. At 475 yards, the long par four 18th brings you home (five for ladies) and is a demanding finish, especially into a north east breeze.
