King James VI Golf Club
The King James VI Golf Club, located in Perth, Scotland, is a historic and unique private golf course also open to visitors. It was founded in 1858.
The Tay River setting is notable as it is the country's only self-contained course on a river island. The Island course is only accessible by foot by a sidewalk on the side of a train bridge crossing the Tay.
Founded nearby at Perth's South Inch, King James VI was relocated to Moncrieffe Island in 1897. It was designed by Tom Morris, the legendary winner of multiple British Open Championships and a noted course designer.
Morris was noted for incorporating natural features such as walls, burns and heather into his designs, and players of his new island golf course had to contend with many mounds and banks as well as some trees and bunkers. King James VI is set on well-drained, parkland. Although it is set on an island, the water is not always obvious, as a wide variety of trees border the fairways and line many of the banks.

Nice Course difficult access
Had a nice round at this course. Issues getting a trolley and clubs to and from the course would mean it’s unlikely I’d recommend to female friends.
Staff friendly. The course is a bit of challenge to get to but I will say that actually made it more interesting and we where intrigued to find what was hidden on the island. The course is a short couse with a few interesting holes. On the whole 7/10 .
Gem - Great Course and Friendly atmosphere
Second chance to play the course as rain interrupted the last experience. Very welcoming club, fantastic staff, good food and a wonderful varied course. What golf should be about!
Nice course, in good condition. Managed to get round two hours thirty minutes, very quiet in early afternoon.
Played this course and although not most accessible due to its location it is definitely worth playing was in great condition,not hardest you will ever play but enjoyable and flat and lovely scenery will be back again
You must play The Island
This is a great set up. Doable but not easy. Flat, and set in mature tree lined fairways.
Clubhouse staff very helpful.
If you have never been you are missing out. If you have been then you know I am right!
Average for this time of year
Autumn leaves everywhere could still lose your ball even hitting middle of the fairway, winter green and flooded course on 2 holes from the tay so they were closed.
cracking wee course
Nice layout. Greens were great considering the weather, a credit to the green staff.
