Kingussie Golf Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1891

Kingussie Golf Club: The Cairngorm mountains in the Scottish Highlands can boast one or two thoroughly interesting, gloriously scenic and challenging golf courses - Kingussie is one of them. The name Kingussie comes from the Gaelic term meaning "Head of the Pinewood", and true to form the golf course emerges from pinewoods and onto the early slopes of the Monadhliath mountains, which lie to Kingussie's north.

This predominantly hill type course will perhaps be unlike anything you've experienced before, unless you are well acquainted with moorland golf. Small birch and pine trees, copious amounts of heather and longer grass lie in wait for shots that are seriously offline, although generally there is sufficient space to work the ball from the tee-boxes onto the undulating fairways. The mountain scenery may well supply your most abiding memories of playing at Kingussie, a golf course that's been successfully established on rugged terrain, and one that will adequately test all aspects of your game.
