All in all Castle Stuart can be described as a throwback to golf as it once was – a simple walk through pleasing natural surrounds with some companionable and competitive rules attached to it.
We have sought to promote an expansive mindset during play, to minimise time spent looking for lost golf balls, to create greens that allow for aggressive and confident putting, and to present a pleasurable setting for all to enjoy during their round of golf.
Castle Stuart itself reflects an appreciation that the game of golf is more about error and recovery than it is about perfection. Its ethos is more about redemption than punishment. It reflects a perspective derived from the play of the 190 top professionals for whom statistics are readily available.
