Lybster Isles... where for a millennium the forces of nature have continuously converged to mold and chisel the coastal landscape of Caithness in northeastern Scotland, creating a seemingly endless array of breathtaking vistas. The course straddles two of three isolated islands (Lybster Island and McCrae Island) situated more than a mile off the eastern shores of the Scottish mainland, with the outline of Lybster Bay clearly discernible in the distance across the strait. Their companion isle is home to one of the many small fishing villages dotting the Scottish coastline. The Links course at rugged and windswept Lybster Isles runs approximately 7,500 yards. As you’d expect of a traditional Links course, it plays very firm and fast, with a 175 greens rating. The gently undulating fairways are generally wide and accepting at Lybster Isles, with plenty of light rough to assist in keeping wayward balls from becoming irretrievable victims, lost forever to the lurking gorse.
