Spey Valley Golf Course
Spey Valley's signature hole is the fifth, the longest hole in Scotland at 635 yards. However, several other holes deserve a mention for their natural beauty. The sixth spans a lake, which has been adopted as a nesting site by a bird colony.
The 12th is the start of the home stretch, where the Spey Valley opens up like a film set. The most spectacular of all is likely Spey Valley Golf Course's 18th, with its two bunkers designed to mirror the undulating corries of the mountains beyond.

Beautiful weather, challenging course
27 degrees a bit on the hot side in such an exposed area but course was well designed and entertaining. Longer than we anticipated and make sure to hire a buggy. Only gripe we would have is that as first timers without a map we missed a couple of the dog leg holes until after we had hit driver. Watch out of the 18th, we had a bunch of cyclists who cycled right in front of (despite signage) us just as were about to drive - could’ve been nasty!
Excellent course and good value for money, great views of Cairngorms
Course had nor recovered from a long winter when we played it (16/4/21), the grass being almost completely dormant. Will be better in the summer no doubt.
Greens very good, tough pins !!! Tees a wee bit rough. The heather is penal - avoid at all times. Par 3s tough, long irons / hybrids to all. Long walk but beautiful surroundings and I was round in just over 3 hours so that was good..
Excellent course and stunning views
Really enjoyed the course which certainly makes you think, then relaxes you with stunning views between shots.
Great Course overall.
Fantastic highland scenery with great wildlife for a background to a demanding course. Every hole has a different stamp to test all golfers.
Played 3 days this week all in beautiful weather. Having played last year in April I did find that the course I guess due to the covid crisis has lacked a little maintenance. Despite that I really enjoyed playing here again. The scenery is breathtaking and you can not beat it anywhere. You definitely know you are in the highlands of Scotland. There is deer and all sorts of other wildlife. It is a challenging course and I was glad to say that I was able to play to my handicap. The staff are all very nice and make you feel very welcome. I would most definitely recommend anyone visiting aviemore to play on this course. You will not regret it for sure I look forward to my next visit.
Ill be back!
Great place to play golf. Plenty interesting holes and the views/setting is very special! Will be back again! Hopefully still at £30
Golf shop was closed when I arrived to play, so did not see a member of staff before I teed off.
Course condition (tees and fairways) were in poor condition. Greens were fine.
Many tee shots would benefit from a marker (post) for optimal direction of Tee shot.
Been lucky enough to play this course twice this year and would highly recommend! Great mix of incredible location and fantastic design along the Spey valley. Currently the best value course in Scotland?
Good Test of Golf
Very Good course - word of warning though - you need a buggy - long walks between green and next tee especially 1st to 2nd 300 yards and 17th to 18th 350 Yards - but course in excellent condition and a beautiful setting amongst the hills of the Cairngorms
Fantastic layout, but the greens were really poor condition.
The best course layout in the area, but the greens were very poor. Staff advised the condition of the greens was due to snow, but we played Grantown-on-Spey a few miles away and the greens were fantastic there.
Could do better
This is a great lay out despite the couple of quirky holes, especially for the better player.
The staff were brill and the situation could not be better.
Sadly the super fast greens were threadbare and did not putt truly - with a pro tournament in 2 weeks this must be a worry. The weather can’t be blamed because the greens at Boat 5 miles away were perfect.
The fairways were good and I liked the definition provided by the wispy rough.
Why oh why however had none of the bunkers been raked, not just on the the day but seemingly for a long time?
This meant many players hadn’t bothered raking either (rude) .
It’s a premium price to play here so I would expect premium conditions
Spey Valley was in great condition. Despite heavy rain earlier in the week, there ware virtually no wet spots and the greens were excellent.
Greens very good, suffered from moss the last few times I played but this has been eradicated. Great course.
