    Fantastic course good challenge a bar for everyone nice food. Good room for the juniors with small bar, pool table, TV and video game. Excellent facilities, putting green and range. Pro-shop has great stock my favorite hole has to be the nice easy par 3 eleventh. The green staff do great job.

        Par 3 11th at Nairn Dunbar is no longer easy (still nice). It's changed direction into the prevailing wind, is considerably longer than it was, coming out of the woods next to 10th Green. Nairn Dunbar has now only one weakish hole, the Par 4 14th. What makes it easier than Nairn - despite its greater length - is that there are fewer bunkers and that it's somewhat more sheltered.

    We played this course in mid-May,1997 after four days of high wind and rain, the course was in great shape. The pro was more than accomodating, allowing us to start in the middle of the course so as to get our round in faster. We started at 6:30 pm from the 14th tee, arrived back at the club house at 7:00 and teed off on the first hole. We enjoyed it so much we came up the 18th at 10:15, it was just getting dark and the full moon was glowing over the Morray furth. Not bad, 23 holes walking in less than 4 hours. A great value round which included club rental. Members were also very friendly. Just keep it out of the gorse!

        Yes, it's a great course, with friendly receptions for visitors - but pleaseb note it's on the MORAY FIRTH!

    I have had the good fortune to play Narin Dunbar three times over the last five years. It is a fine golf course. It's the course local folks play. The length is impressive, especially since the new holes have been opened in the last few years; not just a change but an pleasant change. This is a combination of links and parkland course with large greens and multi-levelled fairways. Woodland and gorse raise there ugly heads to keep players on there toes.
    I was fortunate enough to be sent out for a round of golf with three players from the area one Sunday afternoon. They welcomed me and treated me as well as I have been treated anywhere. I felt just a bit nervous when teams were selected and a small wager was laid. Was I being 'set up'? Yes, set up with Billy, who was a formerly played Walker Cup for England, probably the best golfer I have ever seen. One of the best experiences I have had on or off the golf course.
