Brora makes historic purchase

Following a four-year process, Brora Golf Club has secured the ownership of its famous links course in the north of Scotland.

Following a four-year process, Brora Golf Club has secured the ownership of its famous links course in the north of Scotland.

The club, which celebrates its 130th birthday this year, has completed work to buy the land from Sutherland Estates thanks to the support of members following an EGM and work with local organisations.

Led by club president Andy Stewart and a dedicated working group, Brora is no longer a tenant on the stunning links course and is, instead, owners – giving them greater financial security and surety of access.

The move has been achieved with the help of the trustees of Kilbraur Windfarm, thanks to their grant of £25,000, recognising the role the club plays in bringing tourists to the village as well as being one of the largest employers.

“To become the owner of the land on which our course sits is a proud moment in the 130-year history of Brora Golf Club,” said Stewart. “It is of huge significance for the club. It should be celebrated like a married couple buying their first home.”
