Golfing in the Cairngorms!

Where can I golf when visting the Cairngorms?… what a choice!

Golfing in the Cairngorms is a must-try. Having lived and golfed in the area for well over 20 years I can honestly say there are great golf experiences to be had in and around Aviemore. From award winning Championship courses to 9-hole challenging tracks. There is without question something for everyone.

“What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I find in the flight of a good drive.” – Arnold Palmer

 Due to the quality courses,more and more golfers are heading North for that special experience. Our guests regularly give us positive feedback after their rounds. Many play several courses during their stay, some on the same day! They really are that accessible!  We even have guests who ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon, where else can you do that with the scenery we have?

“Don’t play too much golf. Two rounds a day are plenty.” – Harry Vardon

What about Lodges close to the first tee?…..

That close you can walk! Here are some to try. Holly Lodge to Spey Valley, Salmon Run Lodge to Carrbridge or Pine Ridge Lodge to Boat of Garten! What a treat to have a wee meal & drink before walking home whilst discussing the highlights, good shots (and not so good shots)!

“I don’t let birdies and pars get in the way of having a good time” – Angelo Spagnolo
