Nine holes £12 

Just seven miles from Gleneagles, Dunning Golf Club is located in the heart of Scottish golfing country and has two sets of tees for those looking for options. It’s not straightforward though, as you have to watch out for the Dunning burn, which meanders through the course and creates an additional hazard to stay aware of.



Nine holes £10

A friendly club on Scotland’s Golf Coast in East Lothian, its course sits at the foot of Lammermuir Hills and is renowned for the quality of its greens. Surrounded by mature woods and farmland, watch out for the Speedy Burn, which comes into play on several holes.



Nine holes £10

A picturesque layout designed by Dr I. McCammond, it offers a variety of challenges in the heart of Argyll and, as such, is an excellent test of golf. If you play during the week then no booking is required, the weekend can be busier however, so booking is recommended.


Machrie Bay


Nine holes £10

A high quality and challenging nine-hole course, it boasts a spectacular setting on Royal Deeside. To shoot low, you’ll find the course to be a challenge to your ability to keep the ball straight, as well as your short game. Afterwards, you can enjoy the family friendly atmosphere in the clubhouse.



Nine holes £20

Sitting on the shore of the Isle of Arran, its layout is an interesting mix of links and moorland. While not being the longest, it is both challenging and undulating with a bucket load of charm waiting to entice you back again.



Nine holes £16.50

Formerly known as Kenmore Golf Course, it’s a course that offers beautiful panoramic views across the Perthshire countryside. Its design follows the natural contours of the landscape with each hole set to test your shot-making ability.
