Scotland's Skibo Golf Course

Carnegie Club at Skibo Castle is home to an outstanding golf course designed by Donald Steele. Located on the edge of the Dornoch Firth with breathtaking views of the Struie Hills, the golf course merges seamlessly with its beautiful surroundings. It is difficult to believe that her golf course has not been around forever! Andrew Carnegie's original nine hole private golf course does not exist any more. However the current course has been recently reconstructed to provide an outstanding eighteen-hole championship links. The restyled championship links course offers magnificent views of the surrounding woods, hills and moors along with a memorable game of golf!

The club house too has been recently refurbished and provides luxurious facilities, including a bar, terrace, dining room and lounge, all with fabulous views particularly of the game on the eighteenth hole. The well stocked library is a treasure trove of golfing history for those who wish to catch up on their reading after a round. Carnegie Club is for members only. You can visit Skibo Castle just once as a guest.

The Carnegie Links represents everything that is wonderful about Scottish golf. The traditional links and the friendly, intimate and warm Golf House add to a memorable day’s play. In addition to the delightful Scottish Championship links course the property has access to The Monk's Walk, a parkland course at the foot of the Castle. The close proximity to the Royal Dornoch Golf Course makes for a memorable golfing vacation in this part of Scotland.

The Skibo Golf Course is one of the few links courses that provide a golfer the rare chance to play on a course which remains firm and fast. The golfer has to play more with thought and skill rather than power. It requires a repertoire of shots even though at 6,671 yards from the back tees, the course is not long by modern standards. One has however to factor in the wind and the course will prove a challenge even anyone.

An added attraction of playing at Skibo is that the varied layout includes rare wildlife habitats that have been thoughtfully protected by Scottish naturalists.
