Great success at the Tomatin 54 Hole Pro-Am 2015

Last week more than 200 golfers from across the UK and Europe teed off in a prestigious event over three of the Highlands’ leading links courses.

The annual Tomatin Single Malt 54-Hole Pro-Am was held from 28-30 September at Castle Stuart Golf LinksThe Nairn Golf Club and Royal Dornoch Golf Club.

In all, 52 teams of four from Scotland, England, Wales, Switzerland and Denmark took part in what is now an established and much-anticipated event in the golfing calendar.

Entertaining commentary from We Film Golf - some cracking shots...and some pretty terrible ones too!

Each quartet includes a leading pro from the Professional Golfers’ Association Scotland Order of Merit who played alongside local business people as well as tour operators.

Stephen Bremner, Sales Director at Tomatin, said:

We are delighted to have again sponsored this renowned event played over three magnificent links courses.

The mix of a quality golfing experience and spectacular scenery is the ideal showcase for the Highlands and is a perfect fit for us and our markets at home and abroad.

Castle Stuart Golf Links will host the Scottish Open in 2016 for the fourth time in six years.

Nairn Golf Club, which hosted the Walker Cup in 1999 and the Curtis Cup in 2012, will also be home to the 2016 Home Internationals competition and in 2017 it will welcome the Boys Amateur Championship.

Royal Dornoch’s Championship Course is one of the top ranked courses in the world and recently won plaudits for its hosting of the Jacques Leglise Trophy, the annual amateur boys’ team golf competition between Great Britain & Ireland and the Continent of Europe.

The three clubs are part of the Highland Golf Links partnership which also includes the Kingsmills Hotel and Culloden House Hotel, Inverness and the Royal Golf Hotel in Dornoch.

The partnership offers attractive packages for visitors to enjoy the finest links golf and luxury accommodation while exploring a unique and beautiful part of Scotland.

Neil Hampton, General Manager of Royal Dornoch Golf Club, said:

"The Tomatin Pro-Am is a major event for the Highlands and our three leading links courses in particular.

Whisky and golf go together very well and we are indebted to Tomatin for its generous support for the tournament."
