What we say
This little-known clifftop links has been around since 1877. It’s a short but never dull par 69 with undulating fairways, gullies and elevated greens, making the most of the natural contours of the land.
Strathlene is one of the oldest golf courses in Scotland first established in 1877. The ground was gifted to the town by Mr Bryson the factor of Seafield Estates at that time. The original nine holes were created between Portessie and Strathlene House, where two of the holes were situated in the area which is now the Caravan Site.
The original clubhouse was situated at the entrance to Portessie railway station. In 1936 the golf course was extended to 18 holes with the purchase of ground on the headland between Strathlene and the village of Findochty, and was designed by George Smith of Lossiemouth.
Strathlene is an interesting cliff top links-type golf course. Every hole has its own characteristics, of undulating fairways, gully’s and elevated greens, making the most of the natural contours of the land. Four of the original holes make up an enjoyable finish to the round.
