In Their Words ...........
Strathpeffer Spa Golf Club was founded in 1888 during a period when the Spa was gaining in popularity as a health resort. Play was originally over 9 holes but in 1896 the Club resolved that it be extended to 18 holes. It lies in Ulladale among the hills on land belonging to the the Cromartie Estate, five minutes walk uphill from Strathpeffer village square. One of the original course designers was "the grand old man of golf" Tom Morris of St Andrews. In more recent times Peter Allis has described the course as a jewel in the Highlands of Scotland.
The 1980s heralded more improvements with the conversion of an old peat bog into a modern irrigation pond. New paths were laid across the course and a car park built at number 9 green to make it easier for elderly or infirm members and visitors to reach the top of the course.
In situation and scenery Strathpeffer Spa Golf Club is unique among Scottish golf courses. Most hazards are natural with 4 ponds coming into play. Fast sloping greens mean that very few bunkers are required and the course plays much more difficult than the 5001 yards (par 67) would suggest. Don’t expect to overpower this course with long hitting – the winner at Strathpeffer will always be the accurate player!
