Disapointed

Beautiful setting.nice welcome.however if you like blind shots and uneven lies then this is for you.the 7th is a very poor hole and 6 is unfair with a ridge in front of the hreen means uou have to carry a superhuman second shot onto the green. Not for me.a fun bounce game couree only

Correctly called the hidden gem of the Highlands. A challenging, though not long, course with a number of tricky tee shots. Green fees are rather high (?40+) in my view. Greens excellent.

A good course in excellent condition. Lacking feature holes and a little on the expensive side compared to other courses in the area.

We received a very friendly welcome from everybody at this club. The course is very interesting to play with a good variety of holes. Superbly maintained it is a good test of your golf.

Nice enough course though £49 for the weekend is very poor value for money especially when compared to what is on offer at the other Spey Valley courses particularly Grantown.

Another top course in a great setting, with the Strathspey Steam Railway chugging along next to the opening holes.

We played it the day before Spey Valley - it's shorter and tighter, with lots of links-type shots and bounces. The first 7 holes were played into a stiff wind - very difficult, anything loose is gone. Easier downwind on the way back.
