Tain Golf Club is a beautiful 18 hole links golf course designed by Old Tom Morris in 1890 in the Royal Burgh of Tain, Ross-shire, Scotland. Tain's fortune is that so many of Old Tom's original holes survive.
Five Morris holes remain in each half. Going out, these are the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 7th and 9th. Coming home, they are the 10th, 14th, 15th, 16, and 17th. Indeed,the 17th hole is rated probably the finest of all Tom Morris short holes anywhere. Not surprisingly, therefore, Tain is fondly referred to as Old Tom Morris's Northern Jewel, which treasures the Grand Old Man of Golf as its founding genius.
My partner Carole and myself wanted to drop you an email to thank you for your hospitality and praise your beautiful golf course.
We played Tain on Tuesday 15th June for the first time and we both loved every minute of it.
The staff in the clubhouse were so friendly, your professional was so helpful giving us tips and guidance about the course, the green keeping staff we met as we played all spoke and pointed things out about the course and the members we met who were working on the course were so nice and chatty.
Finally the course itself was in absolutely fantastic condition. I found the greens to be some of the best I’ve ever putted on. Overall though the condition of the course is fantastic.
I’m back playing Tain in August with my long time golfing buddy and we both can’t wait.
Wishing you all good health.
Yours in golf,
David Anderson & Carole McKenna
