CASTLE STUART NAMED AMONG EUROPEAN ELITE
Castle Stuart Golf Links
Castle Stuart Golf Links has been named among the 100 best places to play in Europe by a prestigious magazine.
The course is placed 33rd on the list compiled by the editors of leading German publication Golf Journal and adds to the accolades bestowed on the renowned links.
Castle Stuart Golf Links hosted the Scottish Open for three successive years from 2011, with the 2013 competition, won by Phil Mickelson, reaching a television audience of more than 500 million. It was announced last month it will also host the 2016 event.
The course is part of the Highland Golf Links (HGL) partnership which promotes Play and Stay destination breaks in the area. Two other HGL courses are also in the Top 100 list; the Championship Course at Royal Dornoch Golf Club is ranked third and The Nairn Golf Club 81st.
The Kingsmills Hotel and Culloden House Hotel, in Inverness; the Royal Golf Hotel at Royal Dornoch; and the Golf View Hotel and Spa in Nairn are also part of HGL.
The Golf Journal list is a further endorsement for the Highland courses, which in May were all named among the 40 best places to play in Great Britain and Ireland by Golf World magazine.
Castle Stuart, Royal Dornoch and Nairn also feature in the 54-hole Tomatin Single Malt Homecoming Pro-Am which will be held from 30 September to 2 October, just a few days after this year’s Ryder Cup. Former Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher will lead a field of nearly 300 golfers taking part in the 2014 event.
