Rating 0.0

Kingussie Golf Club was established in 1891. In 1908, Kingussie sought the advice of Harry Vardon and extended the course to 18 holes. While some improvements and modifications have been made, the golf course is still very much as it was - Highland golf at its best.

Kingussie offers moderately easy walking on upland terrain, with a few short climbs at the fourth and eighth holes. In general, the fairways are of a generous nature, but the golf course is deceptive and position off the tee is an important consideration.

Kingussie Golf Club's signature hole is No. 4. Although only 475 yards long, the par-5 hole is deceptively difficult. It is the only par-5 hole on the 18-hole course, which measures 5,615 yards from the white tees. Par is 68.

A wee gem

Played whilst on holiday in Aviemore. Excellent course really well maintained and super fast greens. Warm welcome and a few tips from the lovely lady starter. Some quirky par 3s which added to a great experience. Some excellent views throughout. Will definitely play here again.

Great day out

We play Kingussie a couple of times a year but must say the course is in as good condition as it ever has been, more so considering the damage the floods did a couple of years ago.
We played as a 2 ball behind a local 4 and got round in 3 hours 5 mins. Even more impressive was the 16 man visiting party which kept up the pace with us.
If Carlberg did days on the golf course...........

Great highland course

Kingussie is relatively short but always enjoyable. There are great views from the higher parts of the course and some really interesting holes.

Great views - great hills !

Superb views but a lot of stiff hill climbing too. Nice springy highlands turf and good greens but if you've a heart condition - go play nearby Newtonmore which is flat. Staff all super friendly but food only average. As the previous reviewer says - all the par 3's are special !

A Golfing Gem

A must play! There are many grander courses in this part of the world, but don't forget the hidden gems. Kingussie is an excellent example in this category. It's not long, instead you have to think your way around these beautifully scenic golf holes. In particular you will remember all of the short par threes. If you are in the Highlands it would be a shame to miss Kingussie from your golfing itinerary.
