Scotland is the home to golf and with so many courses set in stunning scenery there are certainly plenty to choose from. Aberfeldy is central to Scotland making it the ideal base to also visit St Andrews and Gleneagles – home to the Ryder Cup 2014. Following are some of the golf clubs in our area.
Aberfeldy Golf Course – 18 hole course
Situated in Perthshire, Aberfeldy Golf Club was founded in 1895 and, until 1995, was a 9 hole course which ran along the south bank of the River Tay.
In 1993 the Club decided to extend the course to 18 holes. Aberfeldy is a very scenic, flat parkland course, suitable for all ages.
However there are plenty challenges to overcome with lots of water hazards meandering through the course.
Mains of Taymouth Golf Course – 9 hole course
Mains of Taymouth Golf Course (formerly Kenmore Golf Course) which surrounds the Mains of Taymouth Country Estate, has been designed to be a challenge for all levels of golfer. Beautiful panoramic views give this course a wide open feel, but don’t let this fool you – each hole will test your shot making ability!
Strathtay Golf Course – 9 hole course
The course was laid out in 1909 by Captain Steuart of Ballechin and saw only minor alterations for almost one hundred years. During 2008 the club decided to add nine additional tees to mark the imminent centenary of the club and the new layout has been very well received by members and visitors alike. Each tee marker tells a little of the history of that hole
Pitlochry Golf Course – 18 hole course
Pitlochry Golf is dedicated to becoming one of the finest inland golfing facilities in Scotland and we welcome everyone to be a part of our great golfing experience – from the fantastic course with sweeping views of the Tummel Valley to our state of the art clubhouse serving great food and drink – delivering fantastic service and value.
