Blairgowrie (Rosemount)

While famed for its seaside delights, most of Scotland’s courses are to be found in-land, with the Rosemount at Blairgowrie among the best of them. Its holes are immaculately cut through dense woodland, providing a pleasant sense of peace and tranquillity to this jewel of Perthshire.

The course is extremely challenging; with the stunning forest potentially turning into a fatal hazard for wayward drives, it will find favour with players that can boast accuracy in their arsenal. Having been touched by the likes of James Braid and Dr Alister MacKenzie (designer of Augusta National), there is an undoubted quality and a genuine sense of class at Blairgowrie.

It is one of the best non-links experiences to be had in the country.

Looking for a Scottish golf break?
Scotland is home to some of the most iconic golf courses in the world, and while the likes of Kingsbarns & St Andrews arguably reigns over them all, there are some seriously highly underrated courses that equal the classics in both quality & class, and at a fraction of the price.
