Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

A truly delightful little course beautifully maintained. No need to be too ambitious off the tee better playing for position and enjoy the lovely undulating fairways. Loved it!

“Little Gem with a warm welcome”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

I don't golf but had booked a couple of days at Boat of Garten with my other half who golfs. I regularly go with him golfing when were away for the day out. Having recently broken my foot we hired a buggy to explore the course. Course was in fabulous condition. Great layout and in a fantastic setting. Ross the Pro was very friendly and has good stock in his shop. We stayed for dinner at night. It was curry night. Curry and a drink for £10 bargain. Great facilities, friendly warm welcome and a great setting. Loved it and would go back. From a golfing perspective my other half said it was a fantastic course to play and the greens staff had it in tip top condition. Genuinely it's the best thing in Boat of Garten!

“One of the Best Golf Courses I have Played”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

I have played many golf courses in at least seven different countries but Boat of Garten must rank in the top three. Each hole was different and memorable for something different: perhaps the view from the tee, the tightness of the tee shot, the undulations of the green, many differnt features make this a tough but fair challenge. Add to that the friendliness of the staff and the warmth of the welcome and it becomes a wonderful experience. Well Done.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Lovely club house and staff, rather tasty breakfast rolls as a warm up. Course is first class, superb design, lovely natural terrain and incredible views. Greens are great with an even pace throughout the course. A golfing must visit.
