With views across the Dornoch Firth, Tain's setting is dramatic with the estuary on one side and the mountains of Easter Ross on the other. John Sutherland revised the layout, but there are still 11 of Old Tom Morris's greens in use on the 6,404 yard lay-out. It's a links course with heather and gorse while the Aldie Burn meanders through the course, starting at the 391 yard par four second. The par four 11th (Alps) has blind approach shot over two dunes to a hidden green and then there are s...

Duff House was planned by James Braid in 1910 before Alister Mackenzie redesigned it in 1923. It is a flat, beautifully manicured parkland course with little rough and big two-tiered greens. The emphasis is placed on natural beauty rather than artificial features. There are no steep hills on the undulating fairways and few blind approach shots. There is always an alternative route for those not wishing to take risks over long carries. Two feature holes are the seventh, a 460-yard par four al...

The PGA Centenary Course is a modern classic, combining the best of both the Queen's and King's, created in 1993 by Jack Nicklaus, with five different tees at each hole, the championship markers spanning the 7,088 yards that will be used for the 2014 Ryder Cup. American-style, formerly known as the Monarch's, with some long walks between greens and tees, it's a big stadium course, the longest inland course in Scotland with huge undulating greens, bold bunkering and several risk and reward hol...

James Braid fashioned the Gleneagles Hotel King's course that opened in 1919 set in the splendour of the Perthshire hills in Scotland. It has matured into one of the best moorland lay-outs in Scotland with majestic views of the Ochil Hills, Ben Vorlich and the Trossachs. The holes blend perfectly into the landscape, the springy fairways wind through heather and gorse. Mature pines, silver birch and rowan provide natural amphitheatres on several holes. One great hole follows another through ro...

Arguably the toughest links course in Britain. The Open Championship has been held here on 7 occasions, most recently in 2007. The present golf course was fashioned in 1850 by Alan Robertson of St Andrews. Gorse, broom, open ditches, pot bunkers on almost every fairway and tricky, speedy greens ruin cards and handicaps. The Barry Burn is an additional hazard over the final three holes. In the wind it is a monster off the back tees. The complementary Burnside and Buddon courses that weave arou...

Monifieth Medal is the major of the two courses - the lesser is the 5,100 yard Ashludie, while 6,650 yard Medal course is used as an Open Championship qualifying venue. It is the most westerly of three renowned links on the Angus coastline, the others being Panmure and Carnoustie. The course is built over undulating links with ridge dunes covered in gorse covered and, unusually, for a links course many holes also have tree lined fairways. A tough test, it has a railway line running on one sid...

The Old Course at Edzell is set in 120 acres of ideal terrain. In 2001, an additional nine holes were laid out and the new course is called the West Water. Edzell is an inland course of real beauty and one of the best holes is 'Majuba', a short par three which needs a well played short iron to reach the green, which has a deceptive slope. It's three-putt territory above the hole. There's a flavour of Gleneagles, but the fairways are more tree-lined and there are a few blind shots. For valu...
