The original 9-hole golf course was designed by the legendary Old Tom Morris in 1891. Located in an elevated position, the course offers spectacular views of the Cairngorms, a stunning mountain range in Scotland. This initial 9-hole layout is undoubtedly a testament to Old Tom Morris's expertise and passion for golf course design.
Later in 1908, the course underwent significant expansion and development. It was extended to a full 18-hole course, thanks to the efforts of Harry Vardon, another prominent figure in the world of golf. Vardon was a renowned golfer himself and went on to become a successful golf course architect, contributing to the expansion and enhancement of many courses during his career.
With the addition of the extra nine holes, the course has become even more challenging and offers golfers a broader range of holes to test their skills. The combination of Old Tom Morris's original design and Harry Vardon's extensions creates a golfing experience that is both scenic and demanding, making it a popular destination for golf enthusiasts seeking an enjoyable and memorable round amidst the beautiful landscape of the Cairngorms.
