Situated one mile from the city centre and only 6 miles from the airport Inverness Golf Club provides an excellent test of golf. The course, which has been used for The Northern Open, measures 6256 yards and although considered short by modern day standards it has many fine features which makes it a most enjoyable test of golf. The highlight of the course has to be the dog-leg 14th hole. At 475 yards it not only demands length and accuracy off the tee but an extremely narrow entrance into a small green normally requires the steeliest of nerves with a long iron or wood. The Clubhouse built in November 1997 has an upstairs lounge and dining room offering wonderful views of the course and surrounding areas.
