In their Words…….
Strathlene is one of the oldest golf courses in Scotland first established in 1877 when the ground was gifted to the town by the factor of Seafield Estates, Mr Bryson. The original 9 holes were created between Portessie and Strathlene House, in 1936 the course was extended to 18 holes with the purchase of ground on the headland between Strathlene and the village of Findochty, and was designed by Mr George Smith of Lossiemouth.
A cliff top links course, Strathlene is notable in that it combines modern with old. You’ll play recently redesigned holes that will give players a unique challenge, while heading in, you’ll play some of the original holes – more than 120 years old. More than the play, however are the incredible views of this historic course.
Strathlene Golf Club features brilliant views of the Moray Firth, and as an added plus, your day will be highlighted with views of the many dolphins that call this area of Scotland home.
At the same time the original clubhouse was dismantled and relocated on to the cliff top overlooking Strathlene, where the current clubhouse, built in 1974, now stands. With its lowered windows the upstairs seating offers an excellent view of the golf course and surrounding countryside on one side and a spectacular panoramic view across the Moray Firth on the other.Strathlene Golf Club
