Map / Terrain

Spey Valley Golf Course is a mixture of typical golf course (tees & greens - please avoid both, they are marked with olive green 'out of bounds' on the map; fairways and rough) with good intricate moraine contour detail (2.5m contour interval). There are stands of Scots pine trees and heather moorland add to the mixture. The River Spey bounds the area to the south while the Speyside Railway forms the western edge of the map.
