Perthshire is home to some of the finest inland golf courses in the world and with 40 to choose from … you'll be spoilt for choice!
Perthshire has a long golfing legacy, indeed it is ironic that James IV of Scotland, who tried to ban the game as it conflicted with archery practice, made the first recorded purchase of golfing equipment - a set of clubs from a Bow Maker in Perth in 1502!
This golfing heritage and recent course developments ensures that there is a wide range of options for golfers of all ages and abilities. Choose from scenic Highland layouts, idyllic parkland settings, world famous centres such as Gleneagles and Rosemount at Blairgowrie and many 'hidden gems' spread throughout the area. The main challenge won't be navigating your way successfully around the course, more keeping your eye on the ball amidst such stunning surroundings.
Perthshire is also an excellent golfing holiday base as there are over 60 further courses in surrounding Angus, Dundee and the Kingdom of Fife including St. Andrews and Carnoustie, all of which are within one hour's drive. The accommodation service from our Tourist Information Centres can suggest the perfect place to relax for your next golf holiday or short break!
