Traditionally, the James Braid designed,
Boat of Garten Golf Course
always been popular amongst golfers who appreciate a stern challenge
combined with unrivalled scenic beauty, and of course the occasional passing
of the Strathspey steam train.
The recently built

will surely become one of Scotland’s top competition courses.
offer very pleasant 18 hole courses, and for a more leisurely day out,
are delightful 9 hole venues.
For a bit of fun,
Craggan Golf Club
is a par 3 - 9 hole course – great for beginners or for a fun day out.
Further afield, there are great courses at Forres, Elgin,
Lossiemouth, Inverness, Rosemarkie and Dornoch.
