  • 'A Great Warm Up for Dornoch Trip'

    A truly delightful little course beautifully maintained. No need to be too ambitious off the tee better playing for position and enjoy the lovely undulating fairways. Loved it!

    'One of the best golf courses I have played'

    I have played many golf courses in at least seven different countries but Boat of Garten must rank in the top three. Each hole was different and memorable for something different: perhaps the view from the tee, the tightness of the tee shot, the undulations of the green, many differnt features make this a tough but fair challenge. Add to that the friendliness of the staff and the warmth of the welcome and it becomes a wonderful experience. Well Done.

  • 'Little Gem with a warm welcome'

    I don't golf but had booked a couple of days at Boat of Garten with my other half who golfs. I regularly go with him golfing when were away for the day out. Having recently broken my foot we hired a buggy to explore the course. Course was in fabulous condition. Great layout and in a fantastic setting. Ross the Pro was very friendly and has good stock in his shop. We stayed for dinner at night. It was curry night. Curry and a drink for £10 bargain. Great facilities, friendly warm welcome and a great setting. Loved it and would go back. From a golfing perspective my other half said it was a fantastic course to play and the greens staff had it in tip top condition. Genuinely it's the best thing in Boat of Garten!

  • "Delightful golf course in a beautiful setting"

    Every hole is a little gem. Very pretty. Local knowledge is helpful with some shots. The proshop is very helpful and the merchandise is quite reasonable.

  • "Fantastic"

    Lovely club house and staff, rather tasty breakfast rolls as a warm up. Course is first class, superb design, lovely natural terrain and incredible views. Greens are great with an even pace throughout the course. A golfing must visit.

  • We just turned up and played an enjoyable round until the thunderstorms went over and soaked us. You have a lovely yet challenging course which plays a bit harder than it looks and is all the more entertaining for it.

    Just a note to say we had a great day on Friday and all of us really enjoyed the course & hospitality.  We had a warm welcome & the weather was very kind to us.  Many thanks.

    Quick email to say thanks to all at the Boat for a wonderful day on Saturday. The day flew past and before we knew it we were being chased up by the B&B (at 10pm) to see why we hadn't got there! The course was in great condition and the surrounding scenery was spectacular. Our party had a great time.  Thanks for doing your bit in organising the weather, it was ideal for golfing! We were glad we were not heading out Sunday am.

  • “A blissful course in a spectacular location.”

    If you want a 7000 yard plus course, this is not for you.
    If you want a traditional Scottish heather lined course with spectacular views of the snow capped Cairgorms, this is for you.
    Immaculate condition, friendly clubhouse staff and a proper golfing challenge.
    For steam railway lovers, the icing on the cake is the Strathspey Railway running alongside the early holes!
    You may even see an Osprey overhead as this area is renowned for them.

  • “Excellent in all repsects”The course is beautiful, fair and challenging, surrounded by magnificent scenery, has views of the River Spey alongside several holes as well as great views of the Speyside heritage steam-railway. What's not to like?

    Add to that the excellent and well-stocked pro-shop, a friendly and helpful professional, and a very comfortable clubhouse, with excellent food and service, and the welcoming club-members themselves.
