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.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance. Maximum handicap: men 24; women 36. Proof of handicap required.

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.
