Visiting Newtonmore Golf Club

You’ll be welcomed with open arms when you visit the picturesque Newtonmore Golf Club, laid out on undulating land alongside the banks of the River Spey in the Scottish Highlands.

The Club makes it easy to play and stay, offering visitors favourable packages for green fees, catering and local hotel stays, tailored to suit any size golfing party or individual travellers. Contact the Club to arrange a deal.

If you’re travelling through Scotland by car or coach it’s easy to find Newtonmore village (which is on the A86) by turning off of the main A9 route onto the B9150, travelling south from Inverness, just 12 miles south of Aviemore. If you’re approaching from the Perth side, look out for the B9150 turning to Newtonmore just beyond Etteridge.

You can also conveniently reach Newtonmore by train, because it has a station – just a short walk from Golf Course Road – served with regular Abellio ScotRail and Avanti West Coast trains running on the Highland Main Line. Even the Caledonian Sleeper calls at Newtonmore’s single platform station en route to and from London Euston.

Things to Do and See in and Around Newtonmore

You may have come primarily to enjoy the golf at Newtonmore, but don’t rush away too soon. There is plenty to see and do in the village itself and the surrounding area, particularly if you’re a lover of the great outdoors.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Catch a game of shinty – an ancient and fast-moving sport similar to hockey that has been played in Newtonmore at the Camanachd Club for centuries.
  • Visit one of the nearby whisky distilleries such as Dalwhinnie or Tomatin Distillery.
  • Step back in time at the Highland Folk Museum, where you can explore the homes and lifestyle of Highlanders from the 1700s to the 1950s.
  • For a dose of dramatic Highland history visit the Clan Macpherson Museum and discover the fascinating stories and achievements of Clan members through the generations.
  • Have some family fun by seeking out the Scottish Wildcat on the Wildcat Experience. Dozens of models of the wildcat have been scattered through Newtonmore in surprising spots. There are prizes up for grabs for tracking them down.
  • Explore the Cairngorms National Park and get involved in walking, cycling, kayaking – even snowsports in the winter.
  • Just six miles away you can enter the thrilling world of the Highland Wildlife Park and meet a collection of endangered species such as the UK’s only polar bear, red Pandas, Bactrian camels and European bison.
  • For a truly great day out with the kids head for the Landmark Forest Adventure Park – walk through a tropical hot house and meet life-size dinosaurs.
