Day 3
Play at Grantown on Spey
The club was formed in 1890 and a nine hole course was laid out by A.C. Brown, a golf professional. In 1911 this was extended to 18 holes to a design by Willy Park, of Musselburgh. 1n 1921, James Braid was asked to advise on improvements to the course and the changes he recommended were incorporated and remain to the present day. From a humble beginning the clubhouse has also evolved over the years and in 1999 a major extension and refurbishment was carried out to upgrade it to the very best modern standard.
Situated in the Cairngorms National Par, the course measures 5710 yards, with a par of 70 and Standard Scratch Score of 68. Though not to long, it presents a fair challenge for every calibre of golfer. It is naturally split into three distinct sections – Holes 1 to 6 are played over flat parkland, holes 7 to 12 through moderately hilly woodland, whilst holes 13 to 18 reverts to undulating parkland.                                                                                                                               Overnight in the Mcdonald Highland Hotel.

Boat of Garten Golf Course

Day 6
Play at Boat of Garten
Established in 1898 and designed by on of the grand-masters of golf course architecture – James Braid, “The Boat” is not only a demanding test of sporting skills but also a magnificent setting for the game.
Rightly billed as the golf course that every single Scottish golfer should play, “The Boat” is very much worthy of its lofty status. Make no mistake, this course can show you its teeth to even the most talented player.
Sitting amongst the woods below the Cairngorms, with the River Spey, visible from a number of holes and the Strathspey Steam Railway running through the trees alongside the first seven, this course enjoys a truly majestic setting. Subtle alteration have been made to James Braid’s original design, but the tough, yet incredibly inviting challenge of this Highland gem still remains. The view from the clubhouse, over the 1st and 2nd fairways and beyond, to the Cairngorm Mountains – which such distinctive features as the Lairig Ghru and the northern corries of Braeriach – is incomparable, certainly within the realms of Scottish golf.
