The fishing town of Buckie in the North East of Scotland has been keeping one of Scottish Golf's best kept secrets for many a year - its links style course. Slightly elevated above the sea, it boastssuperlative views across the Moray Firth towards the hills of Caithness. Built on sand, Buckpool has fast, rolling fairways, often lined by tall mature gorse bushes. Swailes and hollows are littered around the approaches to slick undulating greens, so precious some are protected by cavernous bunkers.
Founded in 1906, Elgin Golf Club is a testing heathland course measuring 6449 yards, with par of 69, and a standard scratch of 71, fully justifying its claim to be one of the finest inland courses inthe northern part of Scotland. The course, a test to low and high handicap players alike, is kept in immaculate condition by the green-staff and there is the added beauty of the view to the hills stretching to the distant Cairngorm Mountains.
