Welcome to the website
of Grantown-on-Spey Golf Club.
eighteen hole golf course was formed in 1890.
course was designed by Willie Park with assistance from James Braid. Situated in Strathspey, the course is approximately thirty five miles south east of Inverness and is around half an hour's drive from the Castle Stuart Golf links, new home of the Barclay's Scottish Open. From a humble beginning the golf club has evolved over the years and in 1999
a major extension and refurbishment was carried out to the clubhouse to
upgrade it to the very best modern standard. The clubhouse was provided
with new locker rooms and an enlarged lounge bar and dining area. The
golf club also has a well-stocked golf shop with a good range of all golfing
equipment and clothing.
Situated in the Cairngorms
National Park, the course measures 5710 yards, with a par of 70 and Standard
Scratch Score of 68. Though not long, it presents a fair challenge for
every calibre of golfer. It is naturally split into three sections - Holes
1 to 6 are played over flat parkland, holes 7-12 are played through moderately
hilly woodland, whilst holes 13 to 18 revert to undulating parkland. The
'signature' hole of the course is Murdie's View, the 275 yard 9th, a short
downhill par 4 with the spectacular backdrop of pine trees and the Cromdale
Hills. Elsewhere on the course, magnificent views of the Cairngorm range
may be observed and wildlife abounds.
Grantown is the capital
of Strathspey and is a small town with a history of tourism. Visitors
are always welcomed at the Club.
||Other activities in
the area are fishing on the world famous River Spey, walking the Speyside
Way and the surrounding forests, the Strathspey Steam Railway, the
Cairngorm Mountains, and of course the Whiskey Trail, visiting whisky
distilleries such as Cardhu, Glenlivet, Glenfarclas and Glenfiddich.
