Situated on the southern shores of the Moray of Firth, in a remarkably favourable climate. It is not unusual for golf to be played every day of the year. In recent years the club has played host to many championship, both amateur and professional, and numerous 'stars' from the professional world have visited the course, before playing in the open. Moreover HRH The Duke of York has been a regular visitor.

The championship course has long been regarded as an excellent example of a traditional Scottish golf links, and like numerous links course in Scotland (notably St Andrews),the course starts and finishes within the town boundaries, and form the majority of the course excellent views across the Moray of Firth prevail.

The club welcomes all visitor. Trolleys and clubs are available for hire. The professional is available for tuition. Full bar and catering services provided.

Course Details

Course Name: Old Moray Holes: 18 Yardage: 6643 SSS: 73
Seaside links, with gorse-lined fairways, deep revetted bunkers and grass covered dunes along coastline was designed by Tom Morris. The rolling links is easy going on the legs and would suit all ages. There are also tees available for every calibre of golfer. It has been known for golf to be played all year round because of the excellent climate, the Moray Coast can boast. The course layout uses all the points of the compass with each hole having its own identity.

The 18th a 400 yard, par 4 without of bounds in the gardens sown he right hand side while the left is riddled with bunkers, the fairway itself has been called 'The Humpiest' in the world. A deep revetted bunker aptly named 'hell' guards the green left while there is gorse on the right. The approach shot is played uphill to a plateau green in front of the clubhouse.

Course Name: New Moray Holes: 18 Yardage: 6004 SSS: 69
Sharing the same piece of land as the old course with some holes played within its boundaries, this course was designed by Henry Cotton. It also shares the same characteristic of having gorse winding fairways. The course was designed with every golfer in mind, young, old, high or low handicap.

At the furthest reaches of the course is the 14th, a par 5, 512 yards long. The drive from an elevated tee back towards the town of Lossiemouth, is like the 14th at St Andrews. The fairway is in a shallow valley with gorse on either side. A deep-sided ditch some 80 yards short of the green is resting place of a miss-hit or misguided 2nd/3rd shot (depending on wind direction).

    I played the old course last September ( 2000). It's an good links
    course. I'm from Canada and I played with my cousin who is a member.
    Although the fairways could have used some improvement, I enjoyed my
    round nevertheless. It's too bad the RAF has a base next to the course
    probably distracting many tournaments, but I'd recommend it. A good
    challenge.My mother is from the area and my father played here many
    years ago.My grandfather played it also as a member. He had a
    hole-in-one there probably 80 years ago ( Colvin ). I found the staff
    less than friendly compared to elsewhere in Scotland.

    The course is absolutely first class but if you intend to play it beware of the very unfriendly hazard just before the first tee The starter tried his best although he did ultimately fail to spoil our day. Come on Moray a course as good as yours should do better than that man.

    Playing this course now in September 1997 I have to say that both the old and the new has their charm. We paid 30 for both, but if you only want to play one I strongly suggest the old course. Especially the 18th hole has a fantastic feeling wandering up towards the green and seeing the clubhouse behind the green. It looks and feels like St Andrews but cheaper and hassle free. (I've played St Andrews Old Course as well). I will take this opportunity to recommend Cruden Bay which is the most fantastic course I ever played.
