LAWRIE WELCOMES ‘BEAUTIFUL’ REDESIGN OF ROYAL DORNOCH 7TH

Former Open champion Paul Lawrie has officially opened the stunning new seventh hole on the Championship Course at Royal Dornoch.

While the par-4 hole, known as ‘Pier’, has been in play since the end of 2019, the global COVID-19 pandemic put paid to Royal Dornoch officially unveiling the hole until September.

In further enhancing the stunning championship test over the links, the new hole, which measures 485 yards from the blue tees, has been pivoted to the right so the sea is in view for the entire length of the hole. It also features a green with only the sea and sky beyond it, a replica of the previous one.

Lawrie, who made birdie on his first playing of the hole, said: “It’s a really, really nice golf hole and they have done a great job with it. The old hole was further left, so it’s gone further right with better views of the sea, which is beautiful.”
