Loch Ness Golf Course was opened in June of 1996 and has gained a reputation as an excellent test of golf for players of all abilities. With generous fairways and large greens you may be fooled into thinking that the course was easy but the putting surfaces are some of the best in the Highlands and have developed both subtle and obvious borrows that mean you have to place your ball in the correct position on the fairway to attack the flags.

Under the expert guidance of our Course Manager, Raymond Houston, who also undertook all the construction works, small improvements have been made each year so that the course moves on at a pace that guarantees its excellent condition as well as providing new challenges. At Loch Ness Golf Course there are now three possible routes that golfers can play depending on the type of outing or challenge that they are looking for.

Golfers on Loch Ness Golf Course For instance, if you want to have a quick game with the family, nothing too serious, or have a practice game during an extended lunch break, then the nine-hole par 29 family course is ideal. With seven par 3's and two par 4's it won't take long to play but with small undulating greens and deep bunkers its will test all your short game skills. If you are looking for a more serious game then the one of the two 18-hole options are ideal. You can try either the 5900-yard New course or the existing Championship length Old course. The 2 courses combine several holes so there is a great variety from the 550 yard second hole to the 76 yard hole called Chance. It is played over a deep gully so there is nowhere to go except on the green. In the novel combined design Chance is hole 14 on the Old course and it is the 12th on the New course.

All the courses use water, in ponds or burns, as a natural hazard and this attractive development combines an exacting test of the golfer's mettle with some stunning views over the Beauly Firth, Inverness and The Great Glen. The splendid facilities provided at Fairways gives everything the visiting golfer needs before and after a game.
