Course Review and Comments
I was a full member during 1981 when as part of my degree course I was based at Dounreay and lived in Reay, in a cottage called Drummore, next to the shop and filling station (these places might be closed now).
I loved this course and it never suffered from rain and I never saw it get closed by the weather. It is a real test of golf, and it had a par of 69 at the time, but felt more like 71 or more. The first hole, which if a westerly wind is blowing, this par three is barely reachable in one. This course also has some fine par 5s. At the time this course was excellent value and I would recommend it. The clubhouse also serves as the villages only pub and I have had many good nights in there. The members were really friendly and this Englishman was made more than welcome and a friendly rivalry was made with me and the young (young then) lads. I can't remember all the friends I made in Reay, but a couple of names I can remember are James Hendersen and cheeky Mike Smith and I think captain was Bill Vivers. Anyway thanks for playing golf with me I have some fond memories of my year there. I can't to wait to visit you again and see you again.
If anyone wants to contact me using my e-mail address please do.

Much under-used peach of a small golf course - a must for anyone travelling to caithness.
