Designed by Open Championship winners James Braid and Willie Park, the Par 70 course is just less than 6300 yards from the tips providing a good test for golfers of all abilities. Forres Golf Course is a beautifully maintained, picturesque and interesting layout that will satisfy all who play it. The course is full of memorable holes; none more so than the 16th, aptly named Pond. This is a spectacular hole where a watery grave awaits errant tee shots. In its recent history Forres Golf Course has been honoured to host events such as the Scottish Professional Championship, the Northern Open and the Scottish Young Professionals Championships - a testimony to its quality.
