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.
