"Immaculately kept, the course's layout feels entirely devoted to feeding off of the venue's natural beauty. The fairways run high above the promontory-studded Meadows of Dan in the valley below, inviting the player to stop and admire the view before attempting that next shot."

John Scott Lewinski, Modern Luxury

"When I first saw Primland, it reminded me of the highlands of Scotland. I knew this was the perfect spot for a truly exceptional course."

Donald Steel, Course Architect
