400 Years of Golf

In 2016 Dornoch will celebrate 400 years of golf by holding different events throughout the year. The events will highlight the aspects that make Dornoch, the club, the town and the community an international destination for visitors. 

Supported by Royal Dornoch, the community of Dornoch, local businesses, the local schools, community groups and sports clubs, the year will be filled with concerts, exhibitiions and events that celebrate the culture and sporting history of the area.

The 400 years of golf celebration tees off on the 2nd January 2016 with the Captain of Royal Dornoch 'driving in' using a special hand crafted hickory club and feathery ball. It will be rounded off with visits from the Royal Clubs around the world in September and the club Captain sinking the final putt on the 18th green at the Captains weekend in October. During the interim months there will be something for everyone: visitors, locals and golfers will be able to attend music, drama, and art exhibitions at Royal Dornoch Golf Club and throughout the town - everything from a themed street party to a gala dinner.

Keep up to date with events, news and activities happening in and around the town, throughout 2016 here and on Dornoch400
