THE COURSE

 

Due to the northerly latitude, in the middle of summer it never really gets dark. This means that we can play golf long into the evening and it is even possible to play at midnight if the weather is right.

 

Please note that the club is staffed by volunteers and facilities may not always be open. Please bring ball, tees and such like with you when you visit.

 

GETTING TO SHETLAND

 

Shetland is now better served by ferries than ever before, with departures seven nights a week in both directions on the Aberdeen-Lerwick route all year round, with three calls a week at Kirkwall, Orkney, en route. For full details and bookings visit the Northlink Ferries website.

 

The two 'cruise ferries' on the route - the Hjaltland and the Hrossey - are very comfortable boats with an extremely punctual service: you'll be in Lerwick at 7.30am on the dot (although you don't have to leave the ship until you've enjoyed a leisurely breakfast). Because the 12-13 hour crossing is overnight, you gain two days on your Shetland holiday - days when you'd otherwise be travelling to airports, hanging around to check in - and typically spending more time on the ground than in the air.
