Attraction details
Owner description: Set on the outskirts of the city of Inverness, Torvean Golf Course is a joy to play. Overlooking the historic Caledonian Canal and River Ness, the course comprises approximately 400 acres of well-maintained mature parkland with geologically important Torvean Hill being the central feature. It is a registered SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). We are lucky to be able to share our course with some of the abundance of local wildlife with deer, red squirrel, hares and rabbits a common site, along with the odd otter! Swans, ducks and even red kites have set up home at Torvean.

I am a Member of another course in inverness. I was invited to play today with a couple of members. I loved it so much, I joined up right after my round. This is a stunning course with superb greens and some nice water features. Delighted to now be considered a member of this course. Also. It really does live up to the reputation of being a friendly course. Felt right at home. Straight away. Thanks guys.

“Municipal Golf Club in Average Condition”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

Municipal Golf Club in Average Condition on the outskirts of Inverness. Nice small clubhouse and friendly members. Okay as a course to play on holiday but no where near the calibre of other North of Scotland golf courses.

Thank you for visting and taking time to review. I would suggest that, perhaps, November is not the best month to review a course this far north. With winter greens and fairway restrictions, no golf course is at its best. Please come back and visit in late spring or summer and I'm quite confident that you will form a much better impression of our course. Incidentally, Torvean has not been a municipal course since 2002.

Three of us booked to play last Sunday. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. The course was of a good standard. All in all we had a great time and am happy to commend.

“Lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Picked up a voucher for my brothers birthday t o use. The facilities and although they were very busy that day they went out of their way to accommodate us . Maybe bar a little tired and in need of a makeover however great setting. Can't comment on the course as I am not a golfer but. The staff were very. Friendly and made you feel welcome.

Many thanks for your kind comments. We do pride ourselves as being the friendliest Club in the North of Scotland. We will, hopefully, be moving to a new clubhouse within the next few years but, that apart, we will be refreshing the clubhouse this year so, hopefully, you will find it not quite so tired when you next visit us.
