Royal Dornoch Golf Club House

Royal Dornoch Golf Club House

Following the success of the new clubhouse at Swanston Golf Club, Jefcoate Anderson Architects were shortlisted along with a number of U.K. and international architects for the design of a new club house for the world famous Royal Dornoch Golf Club.

The course is consistently rated in the top 20 of the world’s top 100 courses.

Of the six designs that were submitted by each architectural practice the Club Management Council unanimously judged our proposal to be the winning design.

The club council were particularly impressed by the way we had interpreted and understood their brief and the way in which our design demonstrated a clear understanding as to how they wished their golf club house to function.

Building aeshetics were of great importance to the club and it was judged that our design best reflected the image and aspirations of Royal Dornoch Golf Club and future generations of golfers.

The aim of the design of the clubhouse is to provide a building that is both elegant and functional.
The design draws upon the architecture of the original 1909 clubhouse and creates a contemporary golf clubhouse design that is both modern and timeless.

A requirement of the brief was that the original clock tower should be incorporated in the building and we chose to give the clock tower a very prominent position referencing the central location it enjoyed on the roof of the 1909 clubhouse.

The high level clerestory glazing above the dining room references the original double dormer of the 1909 clubhouse and allows daylight to penetrate deep into the floor plan and provide natural
ventilation.

Generally materials are taken from a traditional pallet including natural and dressed local sandstone, white render, scottish slate and
standing seam natural zinc roof cladding; all of which require little maintenance and are durable in coastal locations.
