Perthshire is home to some of the oldest and most prestigious golf courses in Scotland. Tee off on championship courses and discover hidden gems that offer memorable rounds of golf amongst spectacular scenery.

Perthshire’s foremost golfing destination is without a doubt Gleneagles, the only venue in the UK that can claim the distinction of having three championship courses. The sprawling PGA Centenary, the youngest of the trio, was designed by legendary player Jack Nicklaus, and is the venue of the 2014 Ryder Cup. It’s the first time in 40 years that The Ryder Cup has returned to the ‘Home of Golf’ and is expected to attract 45,000 spectators each day. The Queens Course offers its fair share of tricky moments whilst the classic Kings Course, laid out by celebrated golf course architect James Braid, has challenged the abilities of the world’s finest golfers.

Auchterarder sits adjacent to the PGA Centenary Course. With an easy-walking layout, it poses a unique test for golfers who can enjoy the magnificent views towards Glendevon and the Ochil Hills as they play.

Perth’s South Inch is said to have been the location of the world’s first golf course, played by Scottish monarchs during the 14th century when the city served as the country’s capital. Today you can test your swing on the North Inch Golf Course, a parkland course and one of the oldest in the country, set against the picturesque backdrop of the Fair City of Perth. You can also test your golfing prowess on the King James VI, a relaxing 18-hole tree-lined course in the middle of the River Tay only accessible via a walkway on the railway bridge.

A five-time winner of the Open Championship, James Braid designed a further four of Perthshire’s impressive courses, all of which embrace the natural contours of the landscape. These include the Rosemount at Blairgowrie - host venue of The 2014 Junior Ryder Cup - Alyth, Ferntower at Crieff, and Taymouth Castle at Kenmore (which is currently closed for major redevelopment work).

Be sure to seek out some of the region’s lesser-known gems such as St Fillans golf course on Loch Earn, a favourite of Open and Masters Champion Sandy Lyle, and Killin Golf Club, the 9th hole of which has been described as one of the most breathtaking in Scotland. The courses of Comrie and Muthill are also fantastic choices for those seeking a gentle round of golf over nine holes.

And don't miss the picturesque course at Pitlochry which is set in the gateway of the Highlands. The 5,700-yard course, with views down the Tummel Valley, features undulating greens which will test every element of your game

Get the most out of Perthshire's fantastic golf courses by picking up the Golf Perthshire Pass which offers three, five, or seven rounds of golf at 22 excellent 18-hole venues as well as discounted admission to some of the region’s finest distilleries.

The Golf Perthshire (9-hole) Pass can be used at 13 of the region’s 9-hole village courses, all of which offer stunning scenery and are located within easy reach of one another. The pass also offers discounted entry to the distilleries.

Finally, when booking your accommodation remember to look out for the Golfers Welcome scheme. They accredit accommodation providers that offer dedicated golf facilities like secure club storage, weather updates and details of local golf suppliers.
