Course Information

The easy-walking parkland course at Grantown-on-Spey Golf Club sits proudly amongst a number of great golf clubs in the local area including Boat of Garten nearby. The course is set in what could roughly be broken down into three sections of 6 holes. The first 6 are set out on flat, open parkland that seems to ease you into the round. The second third wind their way through a more hilly area of woodland where tall pines line the fairways and guard the greens. To finish off the round the course reverts back to parkland with a little more undulation than found on the first 6. Just over half of the eight par-4 holes play less than 400 yards and sum up the fact that accuracy over length is thw order of the day.

    Tricky Braid

    This is a course that is most attractively situated, in excellent condition. Unusually for Scotland, though, it puts bunkers and hazards right on the landing-area of my Senior 17-hcp second shots, 'forcing' me to play most of the par 4s as 5s (not all, of course). This is typical of the modern courses of Spain and Portugal, though the customary James Braid subtleties attract and irritate in equal measure! It's still fun, but since we were also held up for quite a while behind a competition, that explains the "Good" rather than "Excellent". Longer hitters will certainly enjoy the course a lot.

    Lovely Course

    Booking with Golf Now was a waist of time and incurred a booking charge which could have been avoided by booking direct with the club. Not sure I'll use "Golf Now" for future bookings!! Yours Jenny

    We enjoyed our round of golf. We were allowed to play earlier than our teetime as the course was quiet. We were made to feel welcome. The course was in good condition and definitely value for money. I had some delightful scampi and chips after our round of golf. A fair course for both men and women.

    Great variety in the course layout.

    Loved the variety in the course layout which was like 3 sets of 6 holes. Par 3's were testing and overall pin positions acted as a good defence for the course where length is not a problem. Beware of tee shot at 15 as the out of bounds is a lot further in than you think!

    A Hidden Gem

    Tucked away in the Highlands, with the Cairngorm Range as a backdrop, this course is a real treat on the eye. After you get over the scenery, be prepared to be punished if you're not accurate off the tee. Well protected and challenging greens add further to the challenge. If you are in the area and have a few hours to spare, this course is well worth a visit. Friendly staff and a welcoming club house only add to the experience.

    Highland golf to savour

    Set in a beautiful part of the Scottish highlands, this course is cleverly designed through trees and heather and although in the hills it is not too difficult terrain to master on foot. Like most Scottish courses of this vintage (1890) what it may lack in length it more than makes up for with interesting and clever holes and tricky but fair greens. This is not a 'grip it and rip it' course. It requires thought and guile to place your tee shot properly and to then work out your best approach to the greens. Failure to do this will cost you strokes! There are a variety of really interesting holes and my favourite was the par 3 eighth. A straight shot up the hill into the wind trying to find a beautiful saucer- like green shaped and surrounded by mounds and bunkers. Take a club more than you think! A fine traditional clubhouse with friendly staff and good food made this an excellent golfing experience. I thoroughly enjoyed my day. You may pass through Grantown on your way to its more illustrious neighbours on the Moray Coast, but I recommend you stop and play this one. You won't be disappointed.

    Classic heathland in a beautiful setting

    If you play only links in the Highlands, you're missing half the beauty of this remote & magical part of Scotland. The River Spey winds through rolling hillsides of the Cairngoms National Park and produced a handful of worthy, classic inland courses. Grantown on Spey is a treat to play: very easy to walk and has a few wonderful views from elevated tee shots. On a whole, I would opt for nearby Boat of Garten over this course, but it's still a very charming, laid-back round of golf.
