Perthshire is home to a great many excellent golf courses. If you are up for a drive, then you can easily reach courses such as St Andrews, Carnoustie, Troon and Loch Lomand. However, just within a few miles of The Falls Of Dochart Inn, you can find some wonderful local courses to try your hand at.
Right on our doorstep, just a short walk from the Falls of Dochart Inn we are very lucky to have the Killin Golf Course. There are nine holes to play while surrounded by the majesty of Ben Lawers and overlooking Loch Tay. You can easily book a round online. Fees vary depending on the time of year, so check before you go...
Just outside of Kenmore is the Mains of Taymouth Golf Course, named for the country estate in which it sits. Here you can find a nine-hole course that has been designed to offer challenges to golfers of any level. When you have finished with your round, you can enjoy the hospitality of the bar and restaurant.
St Fillans golf course is home to two exciting nine-hole golf courses. For avid golfers, this course is worth a visit. It was designed by Open Champion and St Andrew’s professional Willie Auchterlonie. The course aims to be enjoyable for both weekend golfers and professionals alike.
The green fees are very reasonable. It’s £25 for the full 18 holes and £15 for 9. If juniors are playing with fee-paying adults then they get to go for free. There are buggies and trolleys for hire on site. If you didn’t bring your own clubs then you can arrange to borrow a half set, as long as you mention this when you are booking.
The clubhouse offers a range of full meals as well as light snacks so that you can stay fueled for your day on the greens.
The course at Taymouth Castle is currently being renovated. There is a whole new layout being planned. Unfortunately, there is no date for when the work is expected to be finished, so it is worth checking to see how it’s going, and if any of the holes have been opened up for play.
