BRITAIN'S BEST SHORT COURSES - 1. Comrie, Perthshire

"Why you should play it: Just down the road from the mighty Gleneagles so you can imagine the setting. It is simply sensational, with magnificent views over the Strathearn valley. Comrie has been around since 1891 and is undoubtedly one of the finest and most scenic nine-holes in the UK. James Braid played a lead role in its creation and each of the nine holes has its own distinctive character."

The views of the village and the surrounding Perthshire hills are stunning, and the course, at over 6000 yards from the medal tees, presents a challenging yet thoroughly enjoyable test to golfers of all abilities. Every hole has its own interesting features, as may be expected of a course in whose design James Braid had a hand, and no two holes are remotely the same. Our two greenkeepers produce a course that is first class early in the season, and remains at a very high standard, especially throughout the Summer and Autumn months. Our Head Greenkeeper, Ally Philp, is a past Captain and Club Champion.


We are also very proud to have Wallace and Carly Booth as members, Wallace having been a Walker Cup player and member of Scotland’s Eisenhower Trophy-winning team in 2008 and Carly a member of the Curtis Cup team in the same year. Both are now making their mark as professionals and still practise regularly on the course.

The members at Comrie have a friendly and welcoming culture that is appreciated by members, guests and visitors (whether golfers or not), and the clubhouse is open to all. For those who don’t play, there are marvellous walks in the adjoining woodlands.

We have an excellent catering facility.  Bill McGuigan, who came to us from his award-winning Bank restaurant in Crieff, provides great golf club fare as well as exceptional gourmet dishes. Bill now also owns and runs the excellent Avanti Italian restaurant in Crieff.

We like to think that, as a club, we embody the best aspects of traditional Scottish golf. Many golfers will have read the excellent golfing book “Preferred Lies” by Andrew  Greig.  We like the philosophy he expounds in that book – and are delighted to have him describe Comrie golf course as “bonnie, interesting, varied, unmistakeably authentic”.  That is an accolade we are happy to live with!

You will receive a warm welcome to Comrie Golf Club – and you are certain to love the course, the scenery, and the ambience.

We look forward to seeing you.
