Torvean Golf Club, Glenurquhart Road, Inverness. (1962 – 2019) 

The original nine-hole course opened in 1962. It was extended to eighteen- holes in the 1980s. 

The course closed in 2019 to make way for a new road development. A new course is to be provided by the Council to replace the old one. 

The main feature of the course was the nearby canal. Golfer’s also needed to cross two main roads during their adventurous rounds.  

The club first appeared in the Golfer’s Handbook in the mid 1970s but little information, except the name, was provided for several years.
