Nairn Dunbar is highlighting the benefits of ‘joining the club’ by enjoying unlimited golf as a member following the lifting of coronavirus restrictions.

With golf one of the few sports now allowed to be played safely in Scotland, provided social distancing and safety measures are adhered to, Nairn Dunbar is delighted to have re-opened.

While the clubhouse remains closed and visitors unable to tee up initially, only members can play the renowned links in small groups – meaning there has perhaps never been a better time to take up the club’s fantastic membership offers.

With full membership attractively priced at only £60.38 per month for adults over the age of 30, new members are welcome to join immediately and play by booking online tee times.

This represents incredibly value, while juniors under the age of 16 can also join for an annual fee of only £40.

After over two months of “stay at home” messaging given the global Covid-19 pandemic, golf is one of the best sports to boost both your physical and mental health and safely social distance in the great outdoors.

Nairn Dunbar – which will co-host The Amateur Championship with neighbouring The Nairn Golf Club next year and boasts an improved links test following course improvements – is heavily reliant on the local populace to purchase memberships and is now calling for more support given their finances have been hit hard in recent months due to closure.

Kieran Maclean, Club Manager at Nairn Dunbar, said: “It’s been a difficult and sad time for everyone in society, but we are now delighted to have re-opened our doors to members of the golf club. We know how much our members have missed their golf and it is a credit to our Course Manager, Richard Johnstone, that he has managed to keep the links in great condition during the period of lockdown. 
“Given only members can currently play at the course, there really has never been a better time to be a member here and enjoy unlimited golf with our fantastic membership offers which are available from now and represent great value for money.”

Recent restorations to Nairn Dunbar, including holes 9, 10 and 11 offering a more links feel, have been well praised. Through sustainable management, the club have also worked hard on producing more firm and fast greens and undertaken a rough, gorse and tree management programme. 

Maclean added: “We thank everyone who has supported the club during this period and look forward to our members enjoying the course over the coming weeks in a safe manner, before we can encourage visitor play when we are safely allowed to do so.”

Initially a 9-hole course from its founding in 1899 before its extension to 18 holes in 1924, the course offers views across the Moray Firth to the Black Isle and beyond to the mountains of Sutherland, as well as inland to the neighbouring Cawdor Hills. The par-72 layout offers a fun and enjoyable test, characterised by holes such as the picturesque par-3 8th.
