Rating N/A

The Ferntower Course is the 18-hole championship layout at Crieff Golf Club, which has been voted 29th best golfing facility in the UK by the readers of Golf World magazine. Ferntower is built on gently sloping parkland, with views over the Strathearn Valley that dramatically improve and unfold as the round progresses. With mostly wide fairways and the rough cut short enough to avoid prolonged ball searching, Ferntower appeals to all categories of handicapper. The par-71 golf course starts with a par-3 hole, a change from the norm. Although the opening hole measures 163 yards, it's all uphill, and there are three par 5s, among the remaining holes on the front nine.

Great course

Me and my friends are over here on holiday and have been playing the usual tracks in St. Andrews and surrounding areas but this one of the best. The greens were the best I have putt on while on this trip. Overall conditions of the course were excellent and I will definitely play here when I am back over. Scott in the pro shop was very helpful as well.

Lush Fairways & Greens

A very well maintained course with generous lush fairways ; this and the length of the course may suggest it is not a tough test for low handicappers. However the greens provide the difficulty. There is barely a straight putt on the course and even in wet conditions they run very smoothly.

Well worth the money

Crieff is a lovely course and always well presented. Great fun - fair and you can get away with the odd wayward drive.
