    March in Aviemore

    Looking at organising 2 rounds of golf in Aviemore in March for 4-8 people. Seen I can get Spey Valley and Boat of Garten for £135 per head.

    Anyone played these courses? I've heard a bit about Spey Valley but not of BoG.

    Also is there much for us to do at night or would it be a case of filling the van with a carry out 😂

    Are you golfing or skiing?

    We played BOG in May a few years ago, there was snow on the hills still.

    Fantastic golf course though.

    I loved Boat of Garten, really enjoyable course in an absolutely stunning setting.

    Not stayed there for years but I'd guess there must be a decent selection of bars and restaurants in Aviemore for all the skiers that are up that way every year?

    Boat is a great course with fantastic views. But i dont think I'd choose to go in March. Your signature suggests you are much closer to it than me, but check out the average weather stats for Aviemore. At that time of year there'll likely be more winter mountaineers & skiers than golfers. With just cause.

    He’s not kidding. I organised a golf trip up that way in the 90’s and we had to drop out of several bunkers that had snow in them. Beautiful part of the world, and worth the trip. Just be realistic about the conditions if they’re still a little arctic.

    At that time of the year I would be checking to see if they were playing mats on the fairways.

    Skiing or golf, I wouldn't book either until the day before in Aviemore at that time of year.

    Not played bog, but Speyside is fine in season. I think if I had to book in advance I'd be heading to the coast.

    both great courses Owen, but i would steer clear until May TBH. you might get lucky as we have been getting mild winters and great springs the last few years. but equally you could be under 3 foot of snow as well.

    Boat is short and requires plotting round, Spey long. well worth playing but in summers.
