Few destinations are quite as well equipped to cater for top Scottish golfing holidays quite like the stunning Perthshire Highlands.
Resplendent with a wealth of Scotland’s best golf courses, all surrounded by truly breathtaking scenery, highly acclaimed restaurants perfect for that post-game celebratory meal, and of course, the finest boutique hotel accommodation, Perthshire really does have it all.
Whether you’re planning a relaxing game as part of your short weekend break, or dedicating yourself to cramming in as many rounds as possible, here’s your complete guide to the area’s top 9 and 18 hole courses.
Aberfeldy Golf Club
Taybridge Road, Aberfeldy PH15 2BH
Less than 18 miles away from our luxury Scottish hotel, Aberfeldy Golf Course has long been described as one of Highland Perthshire’s best looking courses.
There’s a good reason for that..
With the River Tay rushing through its centre, this flat, parkland course offers magnificent views of lush forests and soft hills rolling away into the distance.
Let’s be honest however, you didn’t plan a Scottish golfing holiday just to stand around taking in the view. You want to tee off and enjoy the challenge of a good game.
In that regard, Aberfeldy Golf Club have got you well covered.
The club pride themselves on offering a course which is suitable for all ages and abilities. Though the holes over the Moness Burn bridge is officially closed, the 9 hole game still offers plenty of enjoyment for both beginners and seasoned players alike.
Golf packages begin from just £37 per person, with regular open competitions running throughout the season.
Strathtay Golf Club
Donfield, Strathtay, Pitlochry PH9 0PJ
A firm favourite with recent guests at our luxury Scottish Hotel, this short yet undoubtedly remarkable par 63 course is just 22 miles away via local B roads.
If the incredible, panoramic views of the Tay Valley don’t stop you in your tracks, you’ll find each of Strathay’s nine holes to be equal parts challenging and delightful.
Based just on the outskirts of Pitlochry, this is one course that is an absolute must for anyone taking their Scottish golfing holiday seriously.
Dunkeld & Birnam Golf Club
Fungarth, Dunkeld PH8 0ES
A little further afield, you’ll find Dunkeld & Birnam Golf Club roughly 40 miles away from the Dunalastair Hotel Suites. In our opinion, making the journey down the A9 from Kinloch Rannoch is well worth it for the chance to enjoy nine holes on one of Highland Perthshire’s most unique courses.
Whether it’s the picture perfect views of nearby Dunkeld Cathedral, or the native Osprey flying over heard before resting in the nearby nature reserve, each hole offers something new to captivate and delight in equal measure.
Golfing begins at £25 per round or £40 per day, with reasonably priced equipment hire also available.
Pitlochry Golf Club
Golf Course Road, Pitlochry PH16 5QY
Pitlochry Golf Club’s renowned golfing academy and driving range make this one a popular choice for novice golfers or those looking to play for the first time during their short break in Scotland.
Not that those with a few more rounds under their belt won’t find plenty to enjoy here.
Acclaimed as one of Scotland’s most impressive and best loved 18 hole courses, Pitlochry is the perfect place for both beginners and long-time enthusiasts alike.
Whether you’re perfecting your game at the golfing academy or putting your best swing forward on the par 69 course, be sure to head to the luxurious clubhouse afterwards. There, you can njoy a delicious menu serving the best in freshly made Scottish cuisine.
Blairgowrie Golf Club, Wee Course
Golf Course Road, Rosemount, Blairgowrie, Perthshire, PH10 6LG
50 miles from your boutique hotel in Perthshire sits Blairgowrie Golf Club, where you’ll find several different courses available.
Whilst the Par 72 Rosemount and Lansdowne both offer dramatic views and an exhilarating challenge for more serious players, it’s the club’s famous Wee Course that serves as our personal favourite.
Surrounded by lavish greenery and miles upon miles of clear blue skies, this 32 par course is ideal for those just starting out, or who simply prefer a gentle, amiable game whilst taking in the fresh Highland air.
Killin Golf Club
Aberfeldy Road, The Golf House, Killin FK21 8TX
An hour’s drive from Kinloch Rannoch via the spectacular Tay Forest Park, the quiet, picturesque village of Killin is one of Highland Perthshire true hidden gems.
Nestled around the western side of Loch Tay, the village is as peaceful as it is wholly unassuming, so visitors may be surprised to find that it’s also home to one of Scotland’s most beautiful nine hole golf courses.
Vast hills and gorgeous mountain ranges sit proudly beyond each hole, serving as the backdrop to a course which is a true joy to play.
