Castle Stuart Golf Links stage for final day
The design that opened in 2009 hard on the shores of the Moray Firth is kind off the tee with contoured fairways that feed all but the most errant shots back into play and a litany of scenic options including perfectly framed views of Castle Stuart, the firth and the Canonry Lighthouse.
The best quirky perk, however, was the soda machine halfway up the steep hill from the 12th green to the 13th tee. Before you tee off at the first the starter gives each player a token for the machine and the break is much appreciated.
