Inverness Golf Course is a well presented course with a relatively simple opening hole at just over 300 yards, followed by a par three that is tightly guarded with bunkers. The tee shot at the next hole, the first of two par fives on the outward half, is best with a touch of draw, and then follows the toughest of par fours (458 yards) with the entrance to the green very narrow. At only 305 yards, the 6th hole requires caution from the tee as a long drive may reach the burn that guards the green. Two more par threes have to be played before the outward half is completed, but at 174 yards and 196 yards they are not easy, particularly the 7th. The out-of-bounds fence is just a few yards left of the raised putting surface.

Feature Holes

The 11th hole dog-legs slightly to the right while the 12th tee shot is played from an elevated position down into a valley. The 14th “Midmills” is a hole of exceptional quality. Dog-legging to the right, cut off too much from the tee and the green is shut out from view by tall trees. The burn plays its part in the second shot, flowing along the length of the fairway on the right as it narrows towards the green. At 475 yards, the long par four 18th brings you home (five for ladies) and is a demanding finish, especially into a north east breeze.
