Moray Golf Club has teamed-up with one of Scotland’s most respected suppliers of spirits to offer golfers a chance to sample malt whiskies while going for a round.

 

The club claims to have the longest association with its own malt whisky of any golf club in the world with its own malt being created when the club was founded in 1889.

Many of the it’s founders were distillery owners who collectively laid down hogs heads of whisky for the club’s members to enjoy.

 

And within living memory, the club whisky was bottled on site with the practice only being abandoned after committee members were overcome by fumes emanating from the bottling process.

 

 

Now it is offering three new experiences, along with the launch of a limited edition 15-year-old Speyside single malt.

 

The formalisation of its relationship with Gordon & MacPhail was one of the highlights of the club’s 125th anniversary celebrations last year and has now been extended to a new three-year contract.

 

 

John Thomson, captain of Moray Golf Club, siad: “The link between Moray Golf Club and whisky has always been celebrated by the club, but the new packages take this connection to another level.

 

“The combination of championship links golf and whiskies from every distillery in Morayshire and Speyside is a big draw, and now our tailored packages give us the means of delivering a very special Scottish experience.”
