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 great course

Played this with my 16 year old son. It was a great day, not too windy and hardly rained. I think it would be a lot more challenging in the wind. The rough isn’t too bad if your ball strays. There are some quirky par 3’s and the course is surrounded by beautiful scenery.

A Wee club, with a massive Heart....

Had to change my tee time, it wasn't an issue at all...so we rocked up at the new time.....it was a damp miserable day when I played but the gentleman in the pro shop couldn't have been more helpful.

I made a few souvenir purchases for friends, including 3 really nice shirts at a very reasonable price, unlike most places!

I then had a quick swing, putt and was away, some really brilliant par 3s. Each one was very different from the last or any others, twice they come back to back ...not often you have a downhill par 3 over a gorge, road, river and it's only 90yards!.
Tough in the conditions of high winds and torrents of rain we played in....stunning course scenery doesn't do it justice it blew us away of the 150 plus courses that I've played this one felt like one of the most magical yet! Even the rain did not stop us viewing and commenting how beautiful it was many times!

Despite the condition out there the course held up really well, allowed some run and the greens were magnificent and true....

Afterwards we warmed back up, next to the fire indoors, was served by a lovely lady who makes a mean cup of coffee. Chatted to some locals and the gentleman from the pro shop again....
Unbelievable price to join this course, of only I was a local...it's a no brainer, nothing was too much trouble.....thanks masses to all at Kingussie.

Love Kingussie

Kingussie is one of my favourite courses. It is set in beautiful countryside with amazing views. The condition of the course was excellent. There was a heavy due on the ground and the first few greens were very wet but the green staff were soon out swishing them. It is a challenging course with some holes a bit hilly but we’ll be back.

Beautiful highland golf

Fist time playing here after spending many a holiday up in this area. Cannot believe I haven’t played Kingussie before!

Super friendly welcome from the starter.

Great atmosphere out on the course with everyone seemingly enjoying the course as much as we were.

Unbelievably scenic holes with elevated tees on many holes.

Excellent condition, greens had been spiked but still played relatively true.

Great value for money.

Thank you Kingussie, I will be back

Wee gem

Always nice playing Kingussie. Unfortunately they started to core the greens on the day we played which I thought was a bit early, and subsequently putted on the majority of greens being cored. They halved green fees too, but I'd already booked, so they couldn't do anything about it. Hey ho! Great course though, might wait a bit longer before booking next year.

Cracking wee course

4 of us played on one of the warmest days of the year. The course was in beautiful condition. The holes weren’t too long and with the course being quiet, pace of play was excellent. Any golfers passing Kingussie really should consider stopping and playing. You won’t be disappointed. The views are spectacular. If I’m in the area again, I’d definitely play it again!
