For lovers of a "good walk ruined", there is a great choice of golf courses in the immediate area and plenty more within half an hour's drive. But always remember - if your round isn't quote going to plan, we hope you'll think of it as a "game of golf enhanced" - all you need to do is look up, breathe deeply and take in your beautiful surroundings.
Aberfeldy Golf Club boasts a scenic parkland course suitable for all ages. Although flat, there are plenty of challenges to overcome with many water hazards meandering through the course. The two halves of the course run on either side of the River Tay and the surrounding hills are an attractive diversion.
Strathtay Golf Course is a fascinating and ingenious short course with four par 4's and 5 par 3's. A new layout of the course now gives a series of tees so that players effectively play eighteen different holes.
This short picturesque course with excellent greens is set in tranquil surroundings and will offer a challenge to all classes of golfer. It will test your shot making skills and make you use every club in your bag.
Another 9 hole course of a very different character can be found at Kenmore, where the Mains of Taymouth Golf Course has been designed to be a challenge for all levels of golfer. Beautiful panoramic views give this course a wide open feel, but don't let this fool you – each hole will test your shot making ability!
Mains of Taymouth Golf Course opened in 1992 on converted farmland in the heart of highland Perthshire by the banks of the silvery River Tay. The design of the golf course was quite straightforward as the landscape was, almost unbelievably, perfect for a golf course.
For those wishing to explore further afield, there are also courses at Dunkeld, Pitlochry, Blair Atholl, Crieff and Killin - all within an easy drive of Aberfeldy. You can see the full set by clicking here.
