September 2018

We had a wonderful time, and greatly enjoyed both of nairn’s courses. But I wanted especially to comment on the welcome we received at both sites. Everybody was so kind and friendly it made what was an enjoyable experience memorable!
Please pass on my gratitude and congratulations to the relevant persons / departments. You are a true example for all involved in tourism!
Once again many thanks and best regards.

No problem. Hope to get back some time. We played Castle Stuart, yourselves, Peterhead and Moray. Nairn Dunbar blew the rest away completely.

Hi there

Just a quick email to say that we played the course a few weeks ago through the SPRA deal.
I’ve played courses the length and breadth of the county but think I will struggle to play many better than Nairn Dunbar.
Our day was amazing.

Visitor Feedback from Robbie Stephen 

Hi Kieran,

As it was so late in the season, I was more than pleasantly surprised on the condition of the course for the time of year! The greens were like lightning, but, very true.
From start to finish the course was excellent, and the hospitality at the end was very pleasant also.

Leading Courses -

A job that in my view deserves a higher rating than the 6.9 of now! The job reminds me of the golf course in Knokke (Belgium). Has the same kind of holes with slightly lower altitude differences!
When we played, the course had a lot of water to wear and so some fairways were quite wet and in some places big pee. However, this could not conceal that this is a beautiful golf course where everyone can have a nice golfing day! Greens were very good and everything looked looked after! Det er ikke en dramatisk kurs men meget subtle kursus! It's in this job in the small finesses!

Also received very kindly and unfortunately afterwards you can not stay longer due to time off at Nairn Golf Club. But also Nairn Dunbar thanks for a great golfing experience and I hope you get something up because a 6.9 is really too little and you deserve better!

5 Star Reviews

31/03/2017 - Cracking course, challenging holes in great condition The greens are fantastically fast and a true roll Friendly staff and a great lunch.

I recommend this course

15/03/2017 - Good course with more features than the normal links
Played here in March the course was in good condition for the time of year. We were required to move the ball of the fairway to semi rough which seams a very sensible option instead of using fairway mats. The cousre layout is great lots of separation between holes which gave us the feeling we had the course to ourselves although the car park was full. I would have no hesitation in going back to Nairn Dunbar.

I recommend this course

Friday 28th April

We had the great honour of having the ex LPGA Joyce Kazmierski (Hall of Fame) and her lovely group of ladies to our course on 28/4/17. We have some feedback from her and her group below:

Dear Kieran,
I must thank you, your Staff and the Nairn Dunbar Members for the wonderful hospitality shown my group. They thoroughly enjoyed their lunch and then the golf, and many expressed how much they enjoyed the course itself. You made them feel quite special and welcomed and there is no doubt I'll be booking with you on our next trip up North. I will also not hesitate to recommend Nairn Dunbar to any who may be looking to book golf up in the Highlands.
Wishing you an enjoyable and prosperous Season and rain only in the evening times.
Sincere regards,
Joyce Kazmierski

Mr D. Duncan and Mr D. Lawson enjoyed a great round of golf at Nairn Dunbar leaving us some great feedback. Mr D. Duncan commented "Excellent course conditions for late October" and Mr D. Lawson commented "Great Day Out" 

 Strutt & Parker's Kevin Maley (Partner of the firm) summary of the Charity Event held on the 30th September

The key to the success of an event such as this is preparation. From our initial meeting we felt totally comfortable that we were in safe hands and that Nairn Dunbar was the right venue for us and our clients. Having looked at other venues, we felt based on the warm welcome, professionalism, facilities and the condition of the course that this was the right choice for us. Ultimately the success of the day would be a reflection on us and more importantly Strutt & Parker.

 We had regular meetings and discussions in the run up to the event to make sure everything was falling into place and that nothing was left to chance. We wanted to make our golf day a relaxed, memorable and fun day out for everyone whilst raise money for our chosen charity. Robert and his team allowed us to focus on getting the teams together, arrange prizes, etc. whilst he and the team organised the day itself from the choice of food to the nearest the pin competition. This allowed us to focus fully on promoting the event in the knowledge that everything was being taken care of by Robert Kay, Donnie Duggie, Stuart Henderson, George Anderson and the team.

 Every single person at the club from catering staff to the golf professional were committed to making the event a success and nothing was a bother such was the desire to make our day go to plan. On the day itself everything fell into place. With the best part of 80-90 people turning up to take part in the event, their every need was catered for from the moment they arrived which allowed all of the Strutt & Parker team to relax and simply enjoy the day.

 All of the senior committee team and management staff from the club made themselves available on the day putting up signage, setting up golf swing video analysis and explaining how the day would work. Once everyone had their bacon rolls and coffee it was off to their respective tees to get started. Thankfully we were blessed with a fantastic sunny day, having rained almost the full day before. The course was in outstanding condition and a joy to play. Having played the course previously only once many years ago, the improvements are significant.

 As everyone filtered back to the clubhouse after an enjoyable round of golf, food was served. A great selection of hot food and generous servings into the bargain to enjoy whilst talking over all those missed putts and dodgy golf shots. Donnie had arranged a whisky tasting event hosted by Royal Brackla Distillery and this was a great success and proved very popular. This was followed by our prize giving and charity auction and a thanks to all who had taken part.

 A very enjoyable, successful day which raised over £6,000 for Strutt & Parker’s chosen charity which wouldn’t was been possible without the commitment and incredible support from all of the team at Nairn Dunbar. Since then we have had countless calls and emails from those who took part thanking us for a wonderful day which is an indication of the effort that everyone at the club made to make the day such a success.

We invited them to play the course and review/rate us. They did and left us some amazing feedback below.

"Martin and I were VERY impressed with the course yesterday. The course presentation - bunkers and greens in particular - was as good as any I've seen anywhere this year on my travels."

3rd October

James Ellwood had a great round and gave us his feedback " Loved the course, Staff first class, the day was a little spoilt by an aggressive gent behind us. Admittedly we were slow but there was no call for rudenss and pressure. THIS HAS NOT PUT US OFF!" 

Thank you to James for the feedback, and can assure him that the gentleman who was rude and pressured this group has been taken aside and spoken to about their behaviour and reminded about proper golf ethics.

I have now played golf for 30 years and the welcome we had at Nairn Dunbar was superb. The Course was in superb condition and the staff and members could not have been more helpful. I would have to say it was “second to none” – Well done! I have to make a special mention for Stephanie who took my call at 6pm the night before and sorted out an am tee time to keep us dry. Exceptional service.

Hello Mr Kay, In answer to the survey you emailed, I don’t do facebook but am happy to reply. I found the service in the pro shop 1st class. The course was in excellent condition and very enjoyable. Several of the members chatted to me on the way round, I was also allowed to play through 2 groups which isn’t always the case and overall found the club very welcoming. I would certainly recommend the club and course to anyone and would be happy to post a review on the scottish courses site
Thanks Nicol Auld
