Thurso Golf Club has been in existence for over 100 years but the golf course has moved locations during that time. The present course was established as a 9-hole in 1921 and was extended to 18 holes in 1963 and it is the most northerly 18 hole course on the British mainland. Over 100,000 trees have been planted which gives the course a parkland feel. Because it is located on a hill above Thurso, several holes are tough tests into a prevailing wind. The signature hole is the 13th over a burn with heather on the left and the rough on the right. The green is drivable but with a strong wind against the fairway is sometimes out of reach. The 15th green has a fine view of the Pentland Firth, Orkney and Dunnett Head. The course is normally not available before 2pm on a Saturday and not before 11am on a Sunday. If you have an official handicap certificate why not join one of our Open competitions.
