NAIRN

Golf Monthly - - Rory Mcilroy -

It had been some years since my last round at Nairn, and my abid­ing mem­ory was a need not to slice early on. This was eas­ier said than done into a fierce wind, but I man­aged to keep my ball off the beach flank­ing most of the open­ing stretch on the right. This is a su­perb links, play­ing over a slen­der Firth­side strip with a mi­nor tri­an­gu­lar in­land de­tour from 13 to 15. There are many ex­cel­lent and of­ten well-bunkered holes, plus some mag­nif­i­cent views, es­pe­cially from the tee of the long par-3 14th play­ing back down to­wards the Firth – a hole I strangely had lit­tle rec­ol­lec­tion of from pre­vi­ous vis­its. Stats: par 71, 6,441 yards W: nairn­golf­club.co.uk GF: £120 per round; £180 for two rounds in four days
