ARCHERFIELD LINKS GOLF CLUB

A members’ golf club an hour’s drive from Edinburgh, based around the beautiful country retreat of Archerfield House. With two links golf courses, the Fidra and Dirleton, meandering along the edges of the Firth of Forth at the point where it widens into the sea, this is one of the finest settings to play golf. Fidra was believed to have inspired Robert Louis Stevenson`s `Treasure Island`.

 The 7,000-yard Fidra and 7,000-yard Dirleton courses, laid out by senior tour professional David J Russell, opened in 2004 and 2006. The courses are fringed by pine trees and sand dunes and open out onto spectacular views of the Forth Estuary and the Bass Rock. 

The estate is rich with ancient heritage. Named after the archers of King Edward I, who pitched their tents here during the English invasion of 1298, the estate enjoyed a period as a stately home before being taken over by the British Army shortly after the outbreak of World War II. 

The property also has a variety of accommodation such as lodges and individual rooms that can be let.

Club Of The Month

Royal_Dornoch_1ROYAL DORNOCH

Royal Dornoch is known as the gem of the north and one of the world’s great courses. But for its remote location in the Highlands, this outstanding links, originally the work of Old Tom Morris, would have hosted many big championships. Bordered by the Dornoch Firth with views of the mountains of Sutherland, it’s not long by modern standards at 6,514 yards but it’s more than a test for the finest golfers. Five times Open champion Tom Watson said of it: ‘It was the most fun I’ve had playing golf in my whole life.’
