Gleneagles is a golfer’s playground. With three of Scotland’s top golf courses and recent hosts of The Ryder and Solheim Cups, it’s easy to see why. The stunning golf courses are as much fun for novices to play as they are for the pros.
Carnoustie Golf Links is iconic and home to ‘Golf’s Greatest Test’. Only a 40 minute drive from Errol Park, golf has been played here since the 16th century. It was the Carnoustie natives who established the Professional Golfer’s Associations of America and Australia.
There are many other incredible golf courses to consider, a few favourites close by are the Rosemount Golf Course, situated in beautiful Perthshire. The course has stunning avenues lined with heather, pine and silver birch, and was originally designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, the renowned architect of the Augusta National course in the USA.
Centuries of golf have been played at Balcomie Links in Fife. Laid out by golf legend ‘Old’ Tom Morris and opened in 1895, the course combines stunning sea views and an often demanding course layout. With notoriously tricky holes including the devilishly challenging 5th, a 447 yard par four named ‘Hell’s hole’ that Sam Torrance claimed was probably the hardest par four in Scotland.
In short, whatever your level and course preference, you’ll never be far from fairways and greens suited to you. Follow in the footsteps of golfing legends during your stay at Errol Park.
