Pitlochry Course

Brant och vacker bana utanför den pittoreska byn Pitlochry som anses vara ett av Skottlands vackraste. Golfbanans kvalitet är lite ojämn men den är klart värd en eller två rundor.

Lansdowne Course

Wer es ganz klassisch haben will, einen Parkland-Kurs wie ausm Bilderbuch, wer eine Runde spielen will, die sowohl sportlich wie auch vom Ambiente her gesehen, in besonderer Erinnerung bleiben soll, der ist hier richtig. Ein toller Platz. Hingehen, spielen, glücklich sein.
