Kinross Golf Courses - The Montgomery Course
The Green Hotel in Kinross, Scotland, is home to two championship parkland golf courses, the Montgomery and the Bruce, set in the beautiful countryside along Loch Leven. The courses serve as an affordable, parkland option while staying in Perthshire near Gleneagles and St. Andrews.
Originally called the Blue Course, it was relaunched in 2006 as the Montgomery. The name comes from a family that has owned the estate around Loch Leven for the last three centuries.
The Montgomery is 6,508 yards and par 71. Undulating greens, streams and ponds are spread throughout the course. A number of holes have views over Loch Leven to the hills beyond. You can catch those sites through glimpses of the tree-lined fairways, which are on all of the holes - a mixture of cherries, oaks, beech, ash, pine, larch and spruce.
The Montgomery underwent various design changes in 2006, adding 19 new bunkers, four new white tees and a pond, all of which have enhanced the layout and made a difficult course even trickier. The keepers of the course are so confident of the changes they've made, they offer a "Montgomery Challenge": Anyone breaking 80 gets the next round free.
Kinross Golf Club has been in existence since 1888, but, like most courses in the area, the original course was lost to World War II.
Visiting golfers, clubs and societies are all welcome and tee times can be reserved at weekends as well as weekdays. Special discounted green fees are available for the residents of both the Green Hotel and the Windlestrae Hotel.

We played the Montgomery and were not disappointed ted with the course layout and conditions..in particular the greens were exceptional, some of the best greens I have played on in over 40yrs of playing golf!
It was unfortunate that we were playing behind a number of 4 balls as we were a two ball..this created us waiting on every hole sometimes up to 10mjns to tee off….
Would definitely recommend the Montgomery and would return to play the Bruce course..
Played in November so bit soggy underfoot. This didn’t distract from our round. Beautiful autumn scenery and we had a lovely warm welcome from the pro and clubhouse staff. Great coffee afterwards. PPI etc in place.
4 ball ahead did lead to a back up of players on the course!
Good Challenging Course
First time playing in Kinross. Lovely course and a good challenge. Really enjoyable round. Will be back for sure.
First Class Experience
From the moment we arrived everything was exceptional. Made to feel welcome in the shop as we checked in, pro gave us a couple of local tips which was helpful. Course itself was very well maintenained and we thoroughly enjoyed our round. Looking forward to our next trip already.
Fantastic test of your game
I was a member here as a boy when the two courses were called the red and blue, this course was known as the blue course. It was the first time I had played the course in about 7 years and may I just say the greenkeepers are doing a great job best I have ever seen the course and was a joy to play. It was a test before but now the trees have got bigger it's more of a thinking course. I don't think you will find better finishing holes in Scotland. Hope to get back in the near future
I would highly recommend this course to anybody. The course was in great condition and the Pro gave out some great advice pre-round advising our group of the blind hazards. Great course!
Challenging course with some tight fairways. The course is one of the best I’ve played and you won’t find many for the price either. Staff were great also on arrival, course was immaculate. We will be back thanks.
