Exactly how links golf should be and a great reminder of how the game was played in the 19th century, the Old Course at Moray offers a traditional seaside layout that won’t be matched by many other golf courses in Scotland. 

The holes on the Old Course run between gorse with fast, firm fairways and its charm, particularly as you approach the greens, is what sets it apart.

Redesigned by famous architect Dr. Alister MacKenzie between 1923 and 1924, you’ll find that Duff Hosue Royal is a flat but beautifully manicured parkland. 

MacKenzie left is stamp on the course with the large two-tiered greens and along with undulating fairways and strategically placed bunkers, Duff House Royal offers a fun challenge.

Martin Hawtree, the man behind the design of Trump International described his masterpiece as five percent his own work and 95 percent of Mother Nature’s. 

There are many highlights to Hawtree’s design, including the first of the short holes, the par-3 third, offering a fantastic tee shot framed by the dunes but the green is ever so near the sand and sea. 

Overall, none of the holes can be described as poor holes and the course offers a thrilling experience.
