Forres Golf Course is situated in the heart of Moray a region famous for its whisky distilleries and beautiful scenery. The course itself is a wonderful parkland golf course with spectacular views and aimed at golfers of all abilities. It is extremely well maintained and has a fine reputation in the area for the condition of its greens in particular.
From the back (white) tees it measures just under 6300 yards with a par and SSS of 70 for men. The front nine is par 36 but is actually the shorter nine. It is however quite tight with a number of tree-lined holes and great variety. The back nine is longer and at par 34 can be a real challenge but there is more room to open the shoulders. The signature hole is the 16th hole, a shortish par 4 played between trees and over a pond to a well guarded green.
The course off the yellow tees is just under 6000 yards with a par for men of 70 and SSS 69. The forward red tees reduce this to 5400 yards and off these tees the course for women plays to a par 72, SSS 71.
