    I feel that Tain is one of the best and most natural courses I played in Scotland and I will play again in 02....the alps played difficult into the wins and I liked my four...17 is a great 3 par.....a great course..playable but a task in the wind

    Tain Golf Course has undoubtedly shown a great deal of forward thinking with regards to the conditions of the course and the facilities that it now offers with it's new Club House. Congratulations to Jim Byars (Club Captain) and the wrest of the committee for offering it's golfers a superb opportunity to play probably one of the finest courses in the Highlands / Scotland.

    That #4 tee shot...made me a bit nervous...besides that the hole is named Long, but is only the #9 handicap...How about the approach on #11 (the Alps)...you have to hit it over two large mounds(hence the holes name) to a blind green on the Dornoch Firth(across from the Royal course). Great back to back par 3's at 16 17...hit an extra club, at least...the 18th(Home) is rated #18 and me thinks someone had a wee dram too many before rating this course...a beautiful layout, prone too casual water on a few holes...but so what...I loved it!
