The original Duff House Golf Club was formally constituted on 1st March 1910 to a plan by the late James Braid. The brilliant Golf Architect Dr. Alister Mackenzie (who later went on to design the World famous “Augusta National”) redesigned the course in 1923, finishing the project in 1924.
The course is a flat, beautifully manicured parkland course with little rough. The large “Mackenzie” two-tiered greens, many well positioned bunkers and trees make the course a severe but fair challenge to golfers of all abilities.
The North East of Scotland is renowned for its rugged beauty and the course at Royal Tarlair is no exception. Situated in the town of Macduff, the course commands panoramic views of the coastline.
Cullen was founded in 1870 and designed by Old Tom Morris. The course is centrally situated between Aberdeen & Inverness on the Moray Firth Coast. The course is 4,597 yards long and has a Par of 63.

At 4,597 yards long, it does manage to fit in a 510-yard par-five 15th. A traditional seaside links course incorporating many blind shots Cullen offers great views of the coastline, Cullen Bay and beyond.
