Cabot Unveils Name, Logo For New Golf Course In Scottish Highlands



The newest golf course at Cabot Highlands in Inverness, Scotland, officially has a name: Old Petty, a nod to the almost 200-year-old church that sits alongside the fifth hole of the Tom Doak design scheduled to open next year.

The Cabot Collection in 2022 acquired the Castle Stuart course, rebranding the facility as Cabot Highlands and announcing plans for a second 18-hole championship layout that threads along a tidal estuary near the property’s 400-year-old namesake castle.

In addition to the announcement of the name of the second course, Cabot unveiled the logo for Old Petty that honors the region’s distinctive highland cow known affectionately by the Scots as “Hairy Coo.”

Castle Stuart opened this week for the 2024 season, with guests not only getting to experience a course designed by Gil Hanse and the late Mark Parsinen that ranks among the Top 100 in the world, but onsite lodging (Golf Lodge or the Farmhouse) and onsite dining at Cabot Highlands’ art-deco inspired clubhouse that includes a bar, restaurant and top-floor lounge.

When Old Petty opens for preview play next year, it will do so along with the opening of an extended 11,000-square-foot clubhouse that includes a whiskey and cigar bar, clubhouse grill and chophouse restaurant. In addition to the castle and church, the Doak-designed new course features an old farmhouse and fishing boat, and unique elements such as the 1st and 18th fairways crossing directly over one another.

The reveal of the new course name at Cabot Highlands is the latest news from the Cabot Collection, which continues to aggressively expand its global presence.

Cabot Saint Lucia immediately jumped into GOLF Magazine’s Top 100 courses in the world upon its opening at the end of 2023, Cabot Citrus Farms in Florida opened its first 18-hole course and two accompanying short courses in January, and Cabot Revelstoke in British Columbia is in development with plans to debut next year.
