The course, designed by Donald Steel and Tom Mackenzie, offers the golfer a rare opportunity to play a links course which remains firm and fast. It requires a broad repertoire of shots, not simply the modern style of aerial bombardment golf, and demands that any golfer, regardless of standard, is rewarded for thoughtful and skilful play rather than for power.

At 6,833 yards from the back tees, the course is not long by modern standards, but in a wind, it will test even the mightiest of players. Its varied layout takes the golfer past exceptionally rare wildlife habitats which have been carefully retained and protected and are now managed to ensure their future. Birdlife abounds and with the sea on three sides and the hills of Sutherland and Ross-shire all around, this course must have one of the finest settings in the world of golf.

    having played cypress point and pebble beach of which i thought were bordering on fantasy golf, i thought the very recent redesign of the carnegie club course was a visual masterpiece. The 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th have all been altered and redesigned, with rivetted bunkers and wispy fescu grass being the order of the day. Simply the best course i've played.
