In Their Words ...........
In 1979, the original 9 hole course was extended to the full 18 holes when land was purchased on the opposite side of the A82 Fort William road. Although initially somewhat bland and uninteresting, the back 9 has matured over the years and many features such as additional bunkers added together with a significant tree planting programme being undertaken. The result is unique with the first 8 holes being centred around Torvean Hill and bordered by the Caledonian Canal with the last ten having a very different and more open feel.
This combination, albeit unintentional, has created the wonderful Torvean golf course enjoyed by many thousands every year. The condition and improvement accelerated dramatically, when in June 2002 the Club agreed a 20 year lease with Highland Council to administer and maintain the course. The acquisition of a dedicated green keeping staff has, in the last 10 years, transformed the course into a wonderful golfing experience with many challenging holes and a layout to test golfers of all abilities.
Before your round, we provide possibly the best practice facilities in the Highlands of Scotland which is, in effect, a small golf course in its own right. Our ‘Grade A’ listed clubhouse is a warm, cosy and welcoming retreat for golfers coming off the course and those wanting a delicious homemade meal or drink. We provide a comprehensive menu to suit most tastes
