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.

Stunning course in the heart of the cairngorm mountains complete with low flying fighter jets. The scenery here is beautiful and the fairways and greens are a credit to the greenkeepers

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!

Not as good as last time !

As we had played the course twice last year we fancied a game there again. There had been some heavy rain in the morning but the forecast was correct and the sun came out for our midday tee off. The course is quite challenging for walking and also playing , with some good holes .... but despite playing well from tee to green no putts where holed unfortunately due to the greens being in poor condition (they needed cutting , and rolling and were very patchy ) and a true roll of the ball was out of the question. The course was first class last year but maybe the greens were poor because of the warm weather not arriving as yet in the Highlands !

Fantastic condition.

Played this course a number of years ago & again on 6th Spey 2021. The course condition was superb, tees good to play off, fairways lush, & greens in excellent condition - a massive congratulations to the greens staff. The course itself is a good challenge for all standards of golf with a number of risk & reward holes that can punish but reward in equal measure.

Brilliant course.

I am new to the game so very inexperienced but this course was brilliant. Well worth the money. I played the weekend before aswell and enjoyed it that much we went back this weekend. Unfortunately the greens had been sanded so where a wee bit disappointing as the greens the week before where awesome. But saying that it’s the time of year to get done and it needs to be done to keep such a high standard that the course is at and shows the amount of upkeep it takes to keep it in such good nick! I will Definetly be back.

Will be nice in the summer

Greens had just been cored and dressed so that was disappointing. It's essential maintenance that needs doing so just bad timing for us. Had we known we might have just decided to play elsewhere and then play Kingussie on another occasion. Arrived to a closed Clubhouse and when we finished we weren't allowed in to use the toilet as a funeral party was expected. Hope you have a strong bladder !!! I'm sure if we return at a different time of year it would be a 4 or 5 star experience.

Gem

We had a wonderful round. The course itself was in fantastic condition, loved the layout and the scenery was beautiful. I can think of few courses I’ve played which I’ve enjoyed as much as Kingussie. I would like to get back to play as often as possible. Loved it.

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.
