Dalmunzie golf course was for the personal use of Sir Archibald Birkmyre and his family.
In 2014 an enquiry by Neil Crafter of the Mackenzie Society led to the discovery of a commercial brochure issued by Simpson Arana, golf architects based in Spain in 1946. Among the list of courses credited to renowned architect Tom Simpson is a private course for Sir Archibald Birkmyre. Birkmyre bought Dalmunzie Estate after the 1914-18 war and commissioned the golf course making it apparent that Simpson is the one and only architect of the Dalmunzie golf course.
Dalmunzie Golf Club was formed in 1946 and has almost 100 members from all over the world. If you are a regular guest or know Dalmunzie well maybe membership is for you.

The Golf Course is now open to all including our cottage residents, hotel guests, local golfers and visitors.

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our holiday at the Dower House – the children in particular loved playing by the river and between us we managed to cover most possible activities – Munros were climbed, fish pursued, pools and waterfalls jumped into, tennis played, tracks walked and birds, stoats and voles watched with interest. We were very comfortable – appreciated the fire on a couple of nights.Emily Malcolm
