Architect

James Braid

Boat of Garten was designed by James Braid, one of golf’s famed Great Triumvirate of the early 20th Century along with Harry Vardon and J.H.Taylor. Braid was also a grand-master of golf course architecture and at “The Boat” created 18 individual holes winding their way through birch trees, heather and whins. He maximised the natural landscape to produce a beautiful and challenging course – not the longest by modern standards but it is renowned as a demanding test of sporting skill and sets an enjoyable test which only the most accurate golfer will match. The Boat regularly features in listings of the best courses in Scotland and was recently rated as 4th in UK for courses with a green fee under £50. Dubbed “the Gleneagles of the North” and with Nairn, Castle Stuart and Royal Dornoch all within easy reach, Boat of Garten is just 30 miles south of Inverness.

Excellent, challenging course in the stunning foothills of the Cairngorms. No wonder it won Best Course Under £50 in the Scottish Golf Tourism Awards in October 2016...its a bargain at the price. Not long but it tests every club in the bag. Pleasant clubhouse and catering....if you are in the area playing Castle Stuart, Dornoch or Nairn then I recommend you play here also. A return visit is guaranteed.
