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.

Played Torvean GC 15th May 2015. Course was good for time of year though a bit bland on some holes at the start of the round. Hospitality very good. For the money it's worth a go.

this is a decent small local course however the welcome at the starters office was poor, not interested in making visitors welcome more interested talking with members who hang around.

Great atmosphere, freindly memebers. Don't be fooled by the short yardage, it makes up for it with small greens and tough par 3's. last three holes could make or break the score card.

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... More

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.

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.
