Where2Golf says: 

Blair Atholl Golf Course: This private, members-only golf club is laid out on a farm property that has had a long and distinguished history. The farm estate, for more than 20 years the home of Gary and Vivienne Player, has now been transformed into a top-class and very exclusive golf course. The partly open, partly tree-lined layout is home to many excellent holes, stylishly bunkered and with many picturesque water features. The rolling landscape, with the Crocodile River passing through it, provides many scenic views onto neighbouring hills.
