Golf Courses Near To The Lodge:

Playing Golf in Perthshire

Scotland is known globally as the Home of Golf, and The Lodge at Perth Racecourse is the perfect base from which to enjoy a game on some of the world's most renowned courses. 

The world's oldest golf course is thought to be North Inch in Perth City, and this wonderful public course is a great way to start your golfing holiday in Perth.

From there, there are four excellent golf courses within a couple of miles, including Kings James on a river island, Murrayshall and Craigie Hill.  The latter two offer fabulous club houses where you can enjoy a quick pint or a lunch after your game.

Less than an hour away in any direction, and you'll find yourself at some of the most internationally acclaimed courses including the unrivalled thrill of Gleneagles Golf Course, the wonderful Rosemount at Blairgowrie and every golfers dream, The Old Course at St Andrews.

Wholeheartedly recommended! We were running late after a long journey and they kindly kept the kitchen open a bit longer for us. We arrived with our 3 dogs who also got their own tubs of sausages and had a cracking sea bass supper. A truly excellent experience as we are so used to England where people tend to love the power trip of closing on the nose and appear to enjoy telling you they’re closed on the rare occasion you run late.


Golf in Scotland was first recorded in the 15th century, and the modern game of golf was first developed and established right here in our wee corner of the world. 

The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, known as the R&A, is just an hour from The Lodge, and is the world governing body for the game (except in the United States and Mexico).

To many golfers, the Old Course at St Andrews, is considered to be a site of pilgrimage and the ultimate bucket list course!

COVID-19 Crisis

It is with deep regret that the decision has been made to suspend trading at The Lodge from 5pm Friday, 20 March for a minimum of four weeks.

On the basis of the unprecedented circumstances we are all living in at present, as well as Government and NHS advice, this was the only possible decision which could be reached with the health and safety of all people the absolute priority.
