The Renaissance Golf Club
Designed by Tom Doak the Renaissance Club has been crafted to meet the standards of a world-class course. A traditional links course which is equally as beautiful as it is challenging and the back tees are certainly not for the faint hearted (particularly on a windy day!!).
The service and attention to detail both on course and in the clubhouse is of the highest standard with many Club House kitchen staff trained to Michelin Star standard.
The Lodge is the luxurious accommodation located on The Renaissance grounds with spectacular views across to Fidra Island – the perfect way to unwind after a day on the course.
It’s the little touches here that really set it apart.
