Founded in 1895 as a 9-hole course running along the south bank of the River Tay, it was extended to 18 holes  in 1995.  Now crossing the river it provides challenging golf during the summer months.  In winter the 10-hole course on the south side of the river is open and offers one of the best golf deals in Scotland at only £10 per round with no membership fee.

In summer you can play the full 18-hole course on your golf vacation, crossing the footbridge to the north side of the river.

Dramatic scenes full of lavish forests and magnificent mountains provide a picture-perfect backdrop not only for players on the course, but also for guests who can sit back, relax and enjoy a delicious, freshly prepared meal in the clubhouse.
