Located at the “gateway to the Highlands”, Crieff Golf Club is surrounded by dramatic scenery with views over the Strathearn Valley. The course plays across rolling parkland that was once the grounds of the Hydro, a grand Victorian Spa.
Old Tom Morris laid out a nine-hole course in 1891, which was later extended to 18 holes by Robert Simpson and James Braid. In 1980, significant changes were made by John Stark in order to accommodate an additional 9-hole course.
Crieff is a parkland course, which can be enjoyed by golfers of all levels. The rolling fairways are generous and the rough is not too penal. Although the course is only 6,400 yards long, there are four par 4s in excess of 400 yards, requiring long and accurate tee shots. The course is laid out over a hill, consequently you may be faced with tricky sloping lies. Thankfully, the fairways climb gradually making walking relatively easy.
Crieff is an immensely friendly club, welcoming visitors with open arms. It also represents great value golf in a beautiful setting.
