Designed by one of the grand-masters of golf course architecture, James Braid, "The Boat" is not only renowned as a demanding test of sporting skill but also a magnificent setting for the game.
Always wonderfully presented, the Course has been dubbed "the Gleneagles of the North" and, ever popular with visitors from both home and abroad, has become firmly established as a "must" for those enjoying a golfing tour of the Scottish Highlands.
The view from the clubhouse, over the 1st and 2nd fairways and beyond to the uniquely attractive surroundings of the Cairngorm mountains - with such distinctive features as the Lairig Ghru and the northern corries of Braeriach - is incomparable, certainly within the realms of British golf.
Depending on the day, this Highland grandeur can inspire high achievement or, more commonly, an acknowledgement that the Course has proved a stern test.
The Clubhouse, with its stunning views from the comfortable sun-lounge and bar, offers a warm and friendly welcome and a high standard of catering to the visitor. A well-stocked golf shop also serves to satisfy the golfer's every need. Two tennis courts, recently refurbished and well maintained, are available for those members and visitors looking for an alternative to golf.
