Designed by Willie Park (Jnr) & Old Tom Morris
When you book a tee-off time at Strathpeffer Spa Golf Club you’re in for a treat. Lying resplendent on a hilltop in the heart of the Scottish Highlands north of Inverness, accessed via the A834 – our impeccably maintained 18-hole golf course has a stunning vista of the Cromarty Firth and beyond.
This magnificent golfing haven has been named one of the UK’s hidden gems by Golf Monthly, and also dubbed “A hidden Gem in the Highlands” by no lesser person that the late, great Peter Alliss – legendary professional golfer and highly respected golf sports commentator.
The course layout itself owes its provenance to golfing legends too – originally designed for the club’s founding in 1888 with nine holes by twice Open Championship winner Willie Park (Jnr), and in the early 1900s extended by Tom Morris, “the Grand old man of Golf” to 18 interesting holes.
Strathpeffer draws members from across the local area – from the Victorian spa village of Strathpeffer itself, Dingwall, Contin, Maryburgh, Conon, Muir of Ord, Evanton, Tore and Culbolkie.
We have a warm welcome waiting for visitors from near or far, both on the greens and in our cosy clubhouse with its selection of beverages and hearty Highland menu.
If you’re visiting its best to book in advance here on our website to make sure you reserve your optimal tee-off time. We hire out clubs and pull trolleys for those who haven’t come prepared.
You can also book our clubhouse for your special event, from weddings and anniversaries to corporate dinners.
If you live in the area and don’t yet belong to our historic club, join up today. You’ll enjoy our regular competitions and other events, not to mention the social side of club life, with reduced guest green fees, practice facilities, a loyalty card, and reciprocal deals with other courses in the area.
Besides the stunning surroundings and spectacular views, the unique enchantment of playing the short Strathpeffer parkland course lies in its undulating fairways, beset with an array of natural hazards that obviate the need for many bunkers.
The fun begins right from the opening hole, which features the longest drop from tee to green of any course in Scotland. Club choice is a dilemma at this dramatic driving hole, with its burn and small green with a tricky out-of-bounds on the right.
With a total of 5001 yards and seven par 3s, there are plenty more challenges to overcome, and after your round the club house offers the perfect place for a play post mortem over a cold beer or a drop of the hard stuff.
Strathpeffer is more than just a golf club – it’s one of the world’s most thrilling and enjoyable golfing experiences.
