Heart of Angus

Just north of Dundee and Perth, there are five golf courses just waiting for you to come and test your skill. They are all ideally placed for you to remain in one base for the duration and only around half an hour of travel is required between each golf course.

Strathmore Golf Centre

This is a relative newcomer to the Scottish golf scene. Rannerloch is an 18-hole course that offers a great test of golf whilst the 9-hole Leitfie Course is ideal as a warm-up or for those needing to put in a bit more practice before the final round.

Golfers make their way up the fairway at the Glenisla Golf Course, Alyth, Perthshire.

Glenisla Golf Club

This course is set amidst 180 acres of undulating parkland and has been described as 'presenting one of the best tests in the area.' Glenisla features over 40 bunkers and five water hazards, providing a superb challenge to golfers of all abilities.

Alyth Golf Club

James Braid expanded the course at Alyth from 13 to 18-holes just before the start of World War II. The emphasis is on precision golf rather than distance, so golfers should look out for the tree-lined fairways and diverse terrain around the course.

This superb heathland course is another of James Braid’s inland classics. The course is undulating, with tree-lined fairways and excellent greens. The 15th hole, known as ‘Braid's Best’, is the signature hole of the course.
