Spey Valley Golf Course

Located next to our sister resort is the spectacular Spey Valley championship golf course.

Recently voted one of the best in Scotland, Spey Valley features some of the most breathtaking views in the world, offering a glimpse right into the very heart of the Scottish Highlands.

Designed by Dave Thomas and host of the European Challenge Tour's Scottish Hydro Challenge from 2009 to 2018, the Spey Valley Championship Golf Course combines the challenging aspects of the sport with the unique Highlands environment, making the course an ideal venue for high-profile golf tournaments and charity fundraisers.

Not only have we been voted 'Most Picturesque Golf Course in the UK' we've also been awarded 'Scottish Highlands Golf Course of the Year 2018' by Your Golfer Magazine. Come and visit us and see why we're award winning.

The Course

YARDS: 7153 | PAR: 72

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.
