The course is calling.

Dismal River is links golf in its purest form. With the White Course and the Red Course each having their own personality, the diversity of play is unlike anything you've ever experienced. The tees provide magnificent views in all directions and the scope of the land makes each hole seem like a world all its own. Both courses have been named “Best New Course” by Golf Magazine and are nationally ranked in a number of top publications.


Designed by Jack Nicklaus, the White Course offers elevated championship tees with magnificent views in every direction. Playing at 6,994 yards from the tips, this Par 71 features 18 unique holes. Experience it for yourself.

“The experience of arriving at the Dismal River site was like stepping back in time and seeing what the dunes of Northeast Scotland must have looked like a hundred years ago. In every direction I looked, I saw great golf holes.” ~ Jack Nicklaus


The Red Course was discovered and designed by world-renowned architect and friend Tom Doak and his team at Renaissance Golf Design. The 18th hole delivers breathtaking vistas of the clubhouse, cabins and 400-foot sand dunes overlooking the river itself.

"The best designs of all are organic, evolving from the subtleties of the ground they inhabit." ~ Tom Doak
