New home of the 2011 Barclays Scottish Open is Castle Staurt Golf links in Inverness, Scotland. This newly built master piece by Mark Parsinen and architect Gil Hanse was recognized as one of the top 5 best new courses in the world. This championship course overlooks the Moray Firth and well-known landmarks that are synonymous with Inverness and the Black Isle - Kessock bridge and Chanonry Lighthouse perhaps the most notable.
Chris from our office recently returned from a 12 day golf trip to Scotland and had the opportunity to play Stuart Castle Golf Links. This was one of his favorites of the trip that included playing at St. Andrews, Carnoustie, Royal Dornoch, Royal Aberdeen, Western Gails and more. Below are some pictures he shared with us from this course and has us waking up early to checking out highlights of this European event.
