The Highlands are remote but with golf courses such as Royal Dornoch Golf Club,
Carnegie Club at Skibo Castle, Brora and Nairn Golf Club, it\'s worth making this
area of the country part of your next Scotland golf vacation.

INVERNESS, Scotland (March 24, 2007) - Golf in Scotland is unlike golf anywhere
else. And golf in the Highlands is unlike golf anywhere else in Scotland
With its sparse population and dramatic landscape, the starkest and highest in the
British Isles, the Highlands feel far removed from the metropolises of Glasgow,
Edinburgh and Aberdeen. The pace of life is slower, allowing time to savor the many
local whiskies and play golf courses like Durness, the northernmost track on the
U.K. mainland.

Remote though they are, Highland courses\' combination of scenery and challenge make
them some of Scotland\'s worthiest plays.

Where to play
Royal Dornoch Golf Club: Royal Dornoch celebrates its centennial in 2006, but there
is evidence golf was played on the site as early as 1616. Dornoch native Donald Ross
worked as a greenskeeper here before embarking on his legendary course-design career
in America.

When Ross said, \"Give me sandy soil and slightly rolling terrain and I\'ll give you
the best courses,\" he could have been talking about mentor Old Tom Morris\' Royal
Dornoch design. critic Kenneth Scott suggested the course would be
a British Open site if not for its far-off location.

Though this is a coveted play for U.K. golfers, the atmosphere at Royal Dornoch is
informal, in keeping with the laid-back Highlands vibe.
