The course condition varied
On the day we played the parkland part of the course was very heavy with clumps of cut grass left where cut, which left the ground heavy and difficult to play through. Also where the pin holes had been changed, some of the previous pin positions were poorly filled in and the area was left raised. My playing partner and I had to remove soil from around the newly cut pin hole on one green before we could putt toward the pin.
Lovely Scenery - unmanned clubhouse
This was my first time playing garmouth, but I’ll certainly return.
A good mixture of short and long holes throughout with excellent points of interest along the way. The 10th is rather confusing which green you’re aiming for, with an unmanned clubhouse and the scorecard not showing a course layout, my SwingU app showed the green to be the 12th (perhaps a recent layout change?).
It would be remiss of me to not mention the 15th which is tight against the river Spey, picturesque to say the least.
I’ll be back soon, thank you
Great natural beauty, a Gem to discover.
The course was overall good, the greens have a lot of moss which had turned black most likely to treatment so I'd imagine that in 4-5 weeks the new grass should show through, greens were slow but again most likely due to treatment, bunkers were raked and presentable. Very quiet on the course during the week. Some beautiful scenery to appreciate. Unfortunately the course has been subject to natural erosion from the river which has eaten into the course.
