A course once described as the place where 'Golf, beauty and the social life, go hand in hand' . In the warm summer months when the skies are clear it has some of the most uplifting views to be found anywhere in the world. Although not one of this fair country's longest courses, if a golfer achieves a score under par here, he or she will have played exceptionally well. With the winding fairways climbing up the hillside, across the gorges and valleys, before leading back down to the club house and finishing over the meandering burn, you will know that you have played over a good golfing challenge.

Pitlochry the return

As I’ve only been playing four years and having played the course when I first started I was keen to find out how I would handle the course. Pleased to say after a poor start I shot 88 which for a 23 handicapper I was pleased with. As regards the course itself it is one of the most pleasing courses on the eye with some stunning views, however with my gammy hip it’s hard work with the hills, next time a buggy for me. If you find yourself in the area which is a great place to holiday give the course a try it worth the money.

Pitlochry Golf Course

Very enjoyable course and easy to follow for first time playing it.
Due to the continual heavy rain for the week prior to us playing there were a couple of wet fairways and run off areas on the course where we have to lift the ball, however the majority of the course was in great condition for the time of year and greens were exceptional.
Good course for outing/societies - drive well and be rewarded. We will definitely be returning.

Excellent as always

Absolutely brilliant as always - definitely one of the best value for money courses in Scotland, couple of fairways struggling but not enough to impact the experience. Excellent clubhouse service and pro-shop, highly recommended

Pitlochry in Autumn

A wet day at Pitlochry but nonetheless the course looked brilliant in stunning autumn colours. Greens rolling very well given the amount of rain.
Warm welcome in the pro shop and great facilities.

Stunning Views

Played last week after a lot of rain course was in excellent condition, a joy to play great views and some great elevated tee positions, would definitely play again, the only gripe was the price of the buggy £27 , apart from that a 10/10 experience.

Well Worth It

First time playing and will definitely be back again. Course was in great condition. Greens really good and course setup well. It was busy and there were a couple of 4-balls in front of us (3-ball) but the pace of play was fine, took us around 4 hours. Course was hilly but not too strenuous. A most enjoyable day and the views and scenery alone are worth it.

2 days of golf for 3 ball intermediate and high handicap

Two days of golf, couple of longish holes and short par 3’s with par 4s. Course obviously well cared for with nice greens with some challenging runs. Approach to greens made interesting with bunker obstacles. Fairways overall quite forgiving. Great views. We enjoyed lunch in the clubhouse with staff doing their best to make us welcome despite corona restrictions. Look forward to returning.

high handicap visitors

Only started playing during Covid. We were a three ball high handicap group visiting for two days of golf. First time playing this course. Really enjoyed the course, well maintained greens with some forgiving fairways. If you struggle walking up hill you may be challenged but there are buggy’s available. Short game made interesting with some well kept bunker obstacles. Staff were friendly. We enjoyed lunch and refreshments

Course with a view

Although this is not a long course, it was challenging in many ways, with the first few holes uphill before flattening out. It felt longer than the yardages suggest, with the greens in good condition but with subtle reads and relatively quick. The views of the surrounding countryside can only be described as stunning. Got teamed up with a couple of other guests who were good company and, although they had much better handicaps than me, also found the course tricky. All in all, a great course that gives a perfect flavour of golf in Scotland.

A great course in the heart of the highlands.

This is a must-play course. Recently voted the best golf course under 6000 yards. One of the best golf courses under 50 pounds. A friendly atmosphere, great course conditions, super clubhouse, great practice facilities, nice shop... What more do you need.
A great day out with friends.
Highland Golf at it's best.
Highly recommended.

Great course. Friendly staff. The only criticism I would have is paying over £5 for a cup of tea and a round of toast.

The best £20 you'll spend on a golf course

This was stunning golf! You can stop at every tee to take a photo of the amazing Perthshire scenery.
The first few holes are quite a climb but once you have played those the reward is fantastic. The greens were in excellent conditions so to were the fairways. At this time of year the clubhouse was closed but the amenities open were first class. Both members of staff were very friendly and efficient.
The only complaint as a visitor was that it was difficult in places to know where the next hole was. It would help if the holes were numbered so not sure we played exactly the course we were meant to, but did it matter. not really because it was a great day.
