Blairgowrie Golf Club (Lansdowne course)

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1979

Blairgowrie Golf Club's Lansdowne course is a more recent layout than the club's Rosemount course. Designed by the respected partnership of Peter Allis and Dave Thomas, the Blairgowrie's No.2 course was officially opened in 1979.

Like the Rosemount the fairways on the Lansdowne are lined with avenues of pine and silver birch, while significant amounts of heather also lie in wait. With its tighter fairways and demand for greater accuracy from the tee, coupled with smaller greens than its older sibling, many would say the Lansdowne offers the more challenging test of the two.

Like its sibling Rosemount course, Blairgowrie's Lansdowne course has also hosted a number of prestigious events, not least the Scottish Amateur Championship in 2013 and PGA Championship Final in 2014.

The club's motto "Longe et Certe" is Latin for "Far and Sure". The club's Coat of Arms, features a ship, a pegasus and three crosses, each of these features taken from the Coats of Arms of three families whose land lies adjacent to the Rosemount and Lansdowne courses: the Macphersons of Cluny, the Earls of Lansdowne and the Rattrays of Rattray.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
