The Strathpeffer Spa Golf Club and Course was formed in 1888 and has an illustrious history. Originally laid out as 9 holes by the twice open champion Willie Park Jr. it was extended to the present 18 holes by Old Tom Morris the “Grand Old Man of Golf”.
The course features a number of unique challenges. The 1st hole features the largest tee to green drop in Scotland. The 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th holes are a superb series of Par-3 holes of widely varying distances, indeed, the course is renowned for its challenging Par-3’s which make it a much sterner test of golf than its length suggests. The long 9th requires both distance and accuracy to challenge par. The dogleg 13th is Stroke Index 1 and although relatively short requires two accurate shots. The 15th, 16th, and 17th holes feature rolling fairways and blind approach shots for most players and finally, the 18th which is steeply downhill and has a severely sloping green that you’ll have to contend with. Throughout the course there are numerous stunning views.
For more information, we have image galleries, course cards, and hole descriptions which you can find in The Course menu.
The Strathpeffer Spa Golf Club is located up above the historic victorian Strathpeffer Spa village and has easy parking in either the main or overflow car parks.
The current clubhouse was completed in 1978 and has recently been refurbished. The main lounge provides a comfortable environment for pre or post-round refreshments and food. On a sunny day, you can sit out on the patio and enjoy the stunning views down to the firth.
Before your round you can top up with golfing essentials from the shop or arrange to rent buggies or hire clubs.
If you’re planning on staying locally, there are a number of accommodation options in the village ranging from friendly B&B’s to more traditional Hotels.
