Kingussie Golf Club

 

Golf has been played at Kingussie since 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 course is still very much as it was - Highland Golf at its very best ! Indeed, Kingussie offers exceptional quality and prides its value-for- money reputation.
