Castle Stuart Golf Links

Inverness, Scotland

A stunning and wildly fun modern links minutes from Inverness Airport


Any one can build a hard course. What few are able to do is create a course that challenges all without overwhelming any. Castle Stuart is a modern links built above and below a seaside bluff just minutes from Inverness Airport. It’s a stunning course in a mesmerizing location. And with wide fairways that present a multitude of strategic options, it’s a course anyone can enjoy playing from the  fairway. Of course, there are preferred routes for low scores. But Castle Stuart is a rare modern course that puts playability above all else.
