This championship links course with heather-lined fairways, superb turf, fine greens and subtle qualities is the seaside course of the Glasgow Golf Club, which was established in 1787. The course was opened in 1892, making the Glasgow Club unique in having two courses 30 miles apart, although the current layout was completed in 1912 by Willie Park Jnr. It is a final qualifying course for the 2009 Open Championship and will be co-host to the 2012 Amateur Championship.

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.’
