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.

The staff were very kind and helpful. We were able to get dinner though the kitchen had closed. The chef kindly made us both a plate of delicious fish and chips, the price for which was extremely reasonable. The breakfast too was excellent with a great choice of main course. Our room was clean, fresh, quiet and comfortable. The position of the hotel is somewhat away from town but in a lovely location. Very affordable, and really enjoyed our stay.


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!
