The Spey Valley Championship Golf Course is an 18-hole course that meanders through ancient Caledonian pine forests and along the banks of the sparkling River Spey.
At 635 yards, our 5th hole is one of the longest holes in Scotland and the 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.
Our membership packages are designed to suit the way you golf. There are options for 7-day, 5-day, couples and juniors. Plus, you'll enjoy plenty of exclusive member discounts, special offers, and preferential rates for hotel stays and golf breaks too.
