What the club says: This majestic course covers 7,153 yards of heathland, woodland, links and inland terrain - a wonderful combination of beautiful landscapes and challenging terrain.

Some of our holes are famous for their outstanding natural beauty; our 5th hole boasts the longest hole in Scotland (at 635 yards) and our 6th spans a lake which has been adopted as a nesting site by a bird colony. When you reach the 12th at the start of the home stretch, the Spey Valley opens up before you like a film set, whilst the 16th presents a real challenge for even the most experienced golfer. You'll need a long, accurate tee shot to carry the water hazard and the flowering purple heather is standing by to punish a poor shot. However, the most spectacular of all has to be the 18th; with its two bunkers designed to mirror the undulating corries of the mountains beyond, this is our raison d'être.



Most Helpful Review

Really nice course and a great layout. Some of the scenery is stunning.

The start is quite tricky but then feels like it opens up a bit which is great if wild from the tee.

The greens and bunkers are excellent. - Apr 29 2017

Stunning golf course in stunning condition.

It seems tight but not too penal so all abilities can enjoy this course.

Fairways and greens in tip top shape.
