With wonderful views of the glorious Cairngorm mountains, Grantown-on-Spey Golf Club naturally splits into three equal sections. The first six holes are open parkland in character and provide a gentle introduction. The course tightens considerably over the second six which pass through fairly hilly woodland. Coming off the 12th green, you emerge onto undulating parkland for a particularly pleasing closing stretch which, though comparatively benign, still contains considerable danger.
Despite the grief you'll encounter from the bumps and hollows and whins and revetted bunkers, the Old Course at Moray Golf Club, designed by Old Tom Morris, is absolutely stunning. You can't help but fall under the magical spell of what is indisputably one of the world's finest links courses. What's more: Because of noise from the RAF screaming into the adjacent Lossiemouth air base, green fees at Moray are possibly the best bargain in the whole of Scotland, Clive Agran writes.
