Royal Dornoch was by far the most popular destination in the North and North-east for visiting golfers during the 2010 season on the figures available from a selection of golf clubs' balance sheets across the area.
The most northerly world-ranked links took in £644,126 in green fees last year - an increase of almost 20 % on its 2009 figure.
Royal Dornoch's figure was more than twice that of the next best - the Walker Cup (1999) and Curtis Cup (2012) venue of The Nairn Golf Club whose 2010 figure was £303,294.
The unofficial league table of income from visitors' green fees for 2010 reads:
1 Royal Dornoch £644,126.
2 Nairn £303,294.
3 Boat of Garten £196,290.

11 Elgin £55,925.

+The Editor does not claim this is an completely accurate list because the 2010 visitor green fees' figures for several of the leading clubs in the North and North-east, such as Banchory, Cruden Bay, Forres, Fraserburgh, Murcar Links, Peterhead and Royal Aberdeen were not available.
+If the officials of any golf club not listed above wish their club's 2010 visitor green figure to be included in the table, please E-mail the information to
