Aimee Smith’s first Royal Dornoch landscape features “Foxy” – the 14th hole on the Championship Course.

She settled on the legendary 14th hole on the Championship Course - known as “Foxy” - for the first of her landscapes, which will be for sale as an original and as limited-edition prints.

Apart from a painting of the iconic 18th at St Andrews, this is Aimee’s first venture beyond the USA, where her portfolio includes Pebble Beach and Spanish Bay.

“Everyone I have ever met who is familiar with Royal Dornoch or who has been fortunate enough to play there, raves about it,” said Aimee, whose husband Steve hails from Edinburgh.

“They dip back into their memories and you see their eyes light up. It is a very special place.

“From an artist’s perspective, the history, the landscape, the water and the light and shadows all come into play.

“Like so many people, we are looking forward to getting over to Scotland again this summer after the troubles of the last two years.

“Hopefully the trip will coincide with the gorse at Royal Dornoch being in full bloom.”
