A message from our friends and business partners at Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Links in Scotland:
Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Links is recognised as one of the finest places to play golf in Scotland. Situated in the Highlands and only 20 minutes from the City of Inverness, we along with other courses (to quote just a few examples) such as Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart Golf Links and Nairn offer our members and any visitors playing here, a fantastic golfing experience whether the groups are staying for just a few days or for a week or more. Our passion on what is the 15th Oldest Recorded Club in the World (1793) is to provide all visitors who come to our venue with the most memorable round of traditional Scottish links golf possible.
Myself and other staff members represented Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club at the Scottish Golf Tourism Awards 2017 which were held at Turnberry last week and we were presented (as voted for by the public) as Scotland’s Best Golfing Experience (value for money). We have also only recently won an award from the Luxury Travel Guide Lifestyle Awards where we have been awarded with the accolade of Golf Club of the Year for Scotland. I can promise any golfing party visiting here next season and indeed in the future the best golfing experience as the staff who work with me are fantastic at what they do where they go that extra step to ensure that members and visitors who come here, enjoy their day as much as possible. On behalf of Scottish Golf we will also play host to the Scottish Boys Under 16s Open Championship (9-12 July 2018) which will bring together an abundance of golfing talent from the UK, Europe and beyond to our Scottish Links Golf Course.
We host both small and large golf groups/outings at Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Links and the package can be customised to meet your group’s needs;
• Breakfast rolls served with tea or coffee on arrival. • Soup & Sandwiches post golf. • Two or Three course meals post golf ranging from Fish and Chips to more specialised choices depending on the groups requirements. • Full use of our extensive range and practice facilities with range balls available for the groups to practice (our range is 400+ yards in length). • 18 or 36 Holes on our James Braid (re-designed) Scottish Links Golf Course. • Caddies (on request and I will arrange as required). • Trolley Hire, Golf Buggy Hire, Club Hire. • Professional golf tuition & demonstrations. • Whisky Tastings in-house post golf (this proved very popular in 2017). • We can also arrange for the groups to be bag piped off the course (this proved very popular in 2017) – the piper would be on-site for up to one hour. • We also have an 8 seat luxury/executive travel operator on our doorstep for golf, local tours and to take any groups further afield. Places like Loch Ness are popular as you know! • We can also assist with any Restaurant bookings where we have made bookings for golf groups (up to 24 people) given our familiarity with the area and where the best places are to go. • I also work with other clubs in the area to assist with any golf bookings given my knowledge of the golf courses and the area (it helps that I play off +1). • We have recently teamed up with the Pentahotel located in Inverness City Centre so I can assist with any accommodation requirements on your behalf whilst securing the best rates possible. • Another hotel we work closely with is the Kingsmills Hotel in Inverness. • We have flights which come into Inverness most notably from Amsterdam (2 flights daily), Heathrow, Gatwick, London Luton & Belfast amongst others.
Our Visitor Green Fee Rates for 2018 have been set at £55.00 per person on weekdays and £60.00 at weekends. Whilst playing in the Highlands of Scotland, the groups will experience what true links golf is all about so I am definitely in a position to direct you to the best golf courses depending on budgets. Did I also mention that we have a Dolphin Colony close to our 4th green and 5th tees? This just adds to the experience for any golfers playing on the 15th Oldest Recorded Club in the World (1793).
Thank you for your time in reading my e-mail and I attach some information for you about our historic Golf Club in addition to some images of our unique Scottish Links Golf Course in the Highlands of Scotland. The images (we have lots more) can be sent separately to for marketing purposes as I own the rights to them. I very much look forward to hearing back from you should you have any questions or queries. I am here to help in any way possible to ensure the visitor experience a special and memorable one. We will also have an brand new website in operation from the end of December 2017.
