New-look Nairn launches special summer 4-ball rate
The Nairn Golf Club in Scotland is giving UK golfers the opportunity to book a break with confidence this year with the introduction of a specially reduced fourball rate on the historic club’s newly-renovated Championship Course.
Renowned as a true test of Scottish links golf and located close to Inverness, Nairn has undergone a major two-year course redevelopment that has elevated its already lofty reputation as one of the best courses in the country. And golfers can now enjoy the full ‘Nairn Experience’ for themselves for the discounted fourball price of £380.
Available from April 1, the offer represents the perfect opportunity for golfers to enjoy a golf break without the difficulties currently associated with foreign travel. The special rate is fully refundable if circumstances mean that golfers are unable to travel.
“We are delighted with the results from the two-year remodelling of our Championship Course and we want to make sure that Nairn is accessible as possible, even in these unprecedented times,” commented Colin Sinclair, Chief Executive of The Nairn Golf Club. “There are understandable difficulties with foreign travel at present, so our special fourball rate means that golfers can still enjoy a golf break while experiencing everything that our club has to offer, including the wonderful highland hospitality.”
Investing £900,000 into the course remodelling project, Nairn enlisted the expertise of world leading golf course architects, Mackenzie and Ebert, who made significant alterations to the layout of the course, making it a tougher test for elite players while still offering an enjoyable and unforgettable experience for golfers of all abilities.
“The Championship Course has always been synonymous with quality putting surfaces and incredible views of the Moray Firth, but now we have a course that will ask many questions of the elite golfer and at the same time offer a fun experience for the higher handicapper,” added Sinclair.
Investment in the project totalled close to £900,000, with Mackenzie and Ebert tasked with elevating the course offering, while at the same time reflecting the ethos and history of the club. The architects recommended a move away from revetted bunkers on the fairways to a more naturalised style so that the fairway hazards would be less daunting. The project also included the decision to move the bunkers up and in to make Nairn a much tougher driving test for the game’s elite players, allowing it to continue to host major events such as the Walker Cup and Curtis Cup, which it staged in 1999 and 2012 respectively, and this year’s Amateur Championship in June.
Additionally, the course now boasts three new greens and 13 remodelled green surrounds. A total of 39 rough-edged fairway bunkers have been installed and 27 greenside bunkers remodelled and revetted, while a selection of remote bunkers have also been removed. Along with three relocated teeing complexes at the 2nd, 7th and 8th holes, there were a further 11 tees added to give the course a variety of yardages for players of all standards. Open sand areas have also been introduced at various parts of the course to incorporate biodiversity with the natural environment.
In addition to the 18-hole Championship Course, Nairn also offers the 9-hole Cameron Course, a comfortable clubhouse and well-equipped practice facilities.
