Alyth Golf Course, situated in the Perthshire countryside, offers a fantastic Scottish golf experience. Alyth Golf course was established in 1894 with Old Tom Morris laying out the original nine holes and James Braid adjusting and extending the course to 18 in the 1930s. The result is one of Carnoustie Country’s most impressive and popular heathland courses which is located in beautiful surrounds.
A combination of tree-lined fairways and diverse, rolling terrain means a premium is placed on precision rather than distance, although both are required. Although this Scottish golf course has many testing and interesting holes, the back nine includes a trio that stand out; the 9th, 10th and 11th.
But the most compelling aspect of Alyth must be its tranquil setting. Within the pines, silver birch and heather overlooking the hills of Angus, it is easy to lose yourself in the joy of a good game.
Enjoy a Scottish golf break in Perthshire and explore the surrounding area while you are here. Visit Glamis Castle, the legendary setting of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, or take a trip to Reekie Linn waterfall and take in the stunning view. There is also a variety of places to eat in and around Alyth to suit all tastes.
