Dufftown Golf Club is an 18-hole course set amongst the most breathtaking scenery in Speyside, the heart of the malt whisky country. Visitors return regularly to enjoy golf in this beautiful Banffshire setting where two of the holes (7th & 10th) feature in ‘Britain’s 100 Extraordinary Golf Holes’ by Geoff Harvey and Vanessa Strowger.

All holes have different playing tactics due to the undulation of the course. From the first tee the course appears to climb for the first two holes, but once you are on the second green any inclines after that are not too noticeable. Your thoughts are taken up with the challenge the course sets and the superb scenery and the overall experience is of rolling fairways lined with heather and heath.

The 7th hole is one of the shortest holes in Scotland at 67 yards off the tee across a deep gully and has been described as a testing picturesque little hole. The 9th tee is one of the highest in the UK at 1,294 feet above sea level, while the stunning 10th tee stands at 1,213 feet with a magnificent view of the town and has a vertical drop of 339ft from tee to green.

The 10th Hole also featured in Sam Torrance’s ‘Ultimate Fantasy Course’ and was in exceptionally good company as some other holes featured were from Royal Dornoch, Troon, Carnoustie and St Andrews!
