New Golf Director for Aviemore

25th July 2019

David Torrance

Macdonald Resorts are pleased announce the appointment of David Torrance as their Director of Golf at Macdonald Spey Valley Championship Golf Course. 

David, a Fellow Member of the PGA, has been based at Spey Valley since October 2018 running his own golf academy. In 2015 David was presented with the Scottish Golf Coach of the year award and has helped to develop some of Scotland’s most exciting prospects including Sandy Scott and Hannah McCook.  David was also coach to Russell Knox in his Junior Years at Nairn Dunbar Golf Club.

In David’s new roll his time will be mainly spent on the continued smooth running of The Club and promoting, as David describes, one of Scotland’s best and most stunning golf facilities.

Commenting on his appointment David said, “It is an honour and pleasure to be appointed as Director of Golf at one of my very favourite golf courses. The facilities at Spey Valley are second to none with the Dave Thomas designed Championship Course & 9 hole Academy Course and world class Practice Area. With the stunning backdrop of the Cairngorms I really can’t think of a more desirable place for anyone, of any playing standard, to enjoy golf more”. 

For all enquiries, David is contactable by e mail at or call the club direct on 01479 812920.
