 Forgotten Golfing Greens Of Scotland

Westness Farm, Rousay.



   “It is not known how long Rousay has had a nine hole course, but a guess would place it’s commencement at the start of the century or even earlier. This course, which falls from the high ground to the seashore, is situated to the west of Westness, and in it’s contours it is a miniature Braid Hills, for that reason, it is the most sporting of the Orkney courses. Every hole is different from it’s neighbours, and calls for great expertise. The scenery is outstanding – Eynhallowin the near distance, and beyond, Birsay and Evie.”


The Course was located at Westness and along the shore at Point of Skeo on the left hand side of the map. The course was also sometimes referred to as Westness.
