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.

    WHAT A GEM. I am a mid handicap golfer well used to new southern English courses maybe less than 40 years old. This course had views to die for; when I played there were still pockets of snow visible on the Cairngorm mountains in the distance. Despite being an overcast summers day the ball still flew well probably due to the course elevation at 1000'. I played well with gross 77 on a handicap of 14 on a par 67 course, so 4 under nett. So was I pleased with my round! My overriding memory were back to back par 3's on 15 and 16. 15 at only 91 yds, but over a road and a burn and with rough beyond, AND a drop of about 100' was stunning. Followed by 16 at nearly 200 yds uphill. 2 more contrasting par 3's you would be hard pushed to see anywhere else. And yes I parred them both hence the memory! If I visited the area again I would play there again and again. The staff were so friendly and the meal afterwards was both great value and delicious.

    Played the course in June '09. While it may seem like merely a challenging muni course for some golfers used to newer 7000 foot monsters, the scenery was astounding. I loved the blind shot over the ridge on the (??) hole, with merely a marking stake to guide you towards the green. And the bell you ring to announce to the tee box that you are leaving the green!

    The day I played was both sunny and drenching rain - on and off - and the wonderful folks in the clubhouse bought a drink for the crazy Yank (me) who didn't have enough sense to come in until he finished his 18!
