Moray is home to a huge variety of beautiful golf courses to suit every kind of golfer. From the beautiful Cullen Links Course, to the upmarket Lossiemouth Club, to the popular Hopeman Course – Moray has a course for everyone regardless of budget, skill set or scenery preference!
The stunning Cullen Links Golf Course is one of the most popular in the Moray area – and it is easy to see why. The quality of the picturesque views surrounding this golf course are enough to make even the worst round of golf you’ve ever played feel like its going smoothly. There are beautiful views of the ocean, which are like something out of a painting on a nice sunny day.
With 10 par three holes – Cullen is the shortest links course in Scotland. However, the short course is full of adventure – winding its way up around a cliff-top, before twisting back down towards the shore where you can golf in between old sea stacks.
The Covesea Links is another course in the Moray area with fantastic views of the sea. The 9-hole course is nestled in a cove right on the coast between Lossiemouth and Hopeman – following the contours of the cove to offer stunning views of the coast.
Best Par 3 Hole in Scotland
Hopeman Golf Course is by far one of the most popular courses in the Moray area. In fact, it’s signature hole, The Prieshach, was voted one of the best Par 3 holes in Scotland by Sky Golf.
Although the 12th hole is the signature hole, there are several others that stand out as particularly brilliant – with the greens at this course being just as good as the far pricier courses in the area. It is no wonder that the course is so popular.
High End Courses
Moray Golf Course is one of the more high end clubs in the area. The clubhouse has some real old world charm, and offers some delicious food and drink – the most important part for me!
The course is of a very high standard – with the fairways and greens kept in excellent condition. It is a great challenge, especially when the wind is blowing, but you can treat yourself to an excellent meal afterwards.
Golfing for Better Mental Health
Not only does golfing help improve your physical health, there are strong arguments to suggest it works wonders for your mental health too. Research has shown that the sport can help you improve your confidence, self-esteem and anxiety levels.
Next week, on Friday 17th May, Living Golf will be hosting its Changing Lives in Moray event at Covesea Golf Links. The purpose of the event is to promote the sport as a way of improving mental health.
The event is open to everyone, regardless of ability (so even I might be able to give it a go!) Teams of four can play 9 holes at a cost of £5 per player. For more information, or if you have transport problems, you can contact Living Golf on 07570 139657 or firstname.lastname@example.org
