It’s the timeless setting that makes Royal Dornoch such a pleasing place to play golf.

The pure white sandy beach divides the links from the Dornoch Firth and it all feels very humbling.

Most famously was Jean Van De Velde’s catastrophe in the Barry Burn on the last day of the 1999 Open Championship, where he made a triple bogey. Carnoustie poses a stiff test even for the most seasoned of golfers with meandering burns, formidable bunker combinations and ferocious rough.
