Nine holes £12

A traditional scenic golf course found in the Perth and Kinross countryside, it’s an undulating inland course with lush fairways and impressive greens. The club has added new tees to three of the holes to give more variety and, although accuracy is placed at a premium, it is a forgiving course with room  for the odd wayward shot.

Opened in 1990, Rothes Golf Club is found in the heart of the Spey Valley on the famous Whisky Trail. Perfect for combining the two, it’s built on parkland and its fairways are tree-lined as the Spey Valley lies in the distance, offering fantastic panoramic views.

Nine holes £9.50

A municipal layout with wide fairways, it’s not the longest of golf courses. Strategic thinking is the best way to conquer this layout and the only real chance you’ll get to smash driver will be on the 405-yard par-4 sixth.
