This superb par 70 golf course at Inverness Golf Club measures at 6,256 yards and has previously hosted the Northern Open. There are plenty of great defining features that push your golfing skills, in particular the use of water which is unusual for the area as it mainly compromises of links courses. The highlight of the golf course is the dog-leg 14th hole that requires great accuracy due to decision you have to make off the tee, to go big and cut the blind corner or layup, either way you are facing a tough approach shot onto a double tired tight green. The Deoch an Doruis 18th hole is a true testament to the quality of the golf course, and provides an excellent finish to the round, with a long par 4 and plenty of bunkers towards the approach of the green.
Located just over 1 mile outside of Inverness, easily accessed via the B853.
We arrived in plenty of time for our round, and were greeted with a warm welcome by the Pro Shop and other clubhouse staff. After this, we witnessed the poorest etiquette demonstrated on the course. We were at the first tee for our slot, when a 4 ball, who I assume to be members, teed off without checking that they were before/after us. As an end result, the round took 3 1/2 to 4 hrs, for a course which should have only taken 3 hrs to play. This was also commented upon by another 2 ball playing behind us, where one of the players was a new member. Other than that, the general course conditions were in good order for this time of year. Only negatives that we had were having to cross a main road, with no pedestrian crossing in sight, and having to wait for the 17th tee to be clear prior to playing approach shots to the 16th green. Would happily play again, and would rate this course as one of the better ones that we've played in the surrounding area.
I recommend this course
