Cabot Highlands Unveils New Tom Doak Course Name & New Visuals!

The new course, Old Petty, represents an authentic celebration of Inverness’s rich history. Doak’s routing threads along a tidal estuary, bringing golfers even closer to the 400-year-old Castle Stuart. The course name is a nod to Old Petty Church, built in 1839, which borders the green. Old Petty’s new logo honors the region’s iconic highland cow (or “Hairy Coo” as the local Scots affectionately call them) and rich colors.

Old Petty will open to golfers for preview play in 2025, along with the opening of an extended 11,000-square-foot clubhouse with a whisky and cigar bar, and clubhouse grill bar and chophouse restaurant. Currently, Cabot Highlands welcomes guests to play the iconic Castle Stuart Golf Links (named among the top 100 courses in the world by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine), stay in charming lodging onsite and explore the incredible natural beauty and ample outdoor activities of the Scottish Highlands.

This season Cabot Highlands recently kicked off its 2024 season on April 1 in Inverness, Scotland. Following Cabot’s acquisition in 2022, “Cabot touches” around the property include the beloved signature Cabot couches behind the 18th hole and thoughtful offerings such as Scottish shortbread cookies on the first tee. Onsite dining can be enjoyed at Cabot Highlands’ unique art-deco inspired clubhouse, which includes a bar and restaurant as well as a top-floor lounge. As the perfect home base for exploring the region, guests are welcome to stay in charming lodging onsite, with options of the Golf Lodge or the Farmhouse.
