Alyth is in the centre of a triangle of world famous courses. It takes you no more than an hour either way to reach the St Andrews , Carnoustie and Gleneagles golf courses - or another 60 courses ranging from links to inland to very hilly (Dunkeld).
Closer to home, Alyth has 3 superb Golf Courses - the younger Strathmore (18 holes and 9 holes and driving range), Glenisla Golf Club (18 holes and driving range) and the James Braid designed Alyth Golf Course (18 holes)
Strathmore Golf Centre - 'The Friendly Place to Play Golf'
An impressive Golf Centre comprising the magnificent 18 Hole Rannaleroch Course, 9 Hole Leitfie Links Course, Floodlit Driving Range, Short Game Area and Practice Putting Green, with a well appointed Clubhouse and Restaurant in a stunning Perthshire location.
With its generous fairways and rolling greens, the 6454 yards Rannaleroch Course is a challenge to low handicappers yet forgiving for beginners, whilst the 1666 yards Leitfie Links Course is ideal for beginners and families.
The Alyth Golf Club
If the Old Alyth Course were any longer, it would be among Scotland’s ‘big league’. As it stands, Alyth is ideal outing for the golfing majority, a delightful yet challenging meander through some of Perthshire’s most scenic groves. Established by Old Tom Morris over 100 years ago and extended and remodelled by the late, great James Braid, this is a well-conceived heathland with character at every turn.
What Alyth lacks in length, it makes up in cunning, a thinking golfer’s course where every swing counts. The emphasis is on precision rather than distance. Both however needed at the course's most demanding stretch, the 9th, 10th & 11th, two long par 4's followed by a good Par 5. With a tight tee shot in every instance, this is the area to make or break your card. There are one or two idiosyncrasies similar to what you find on any old Scottish course such as a blind tee shot or a concealed green but these are not frequent and only add to the excitement.
Another hole worthy of note is the 5th, a short dogleg Par 4 but one that comes supplied with its fair share of drama and possible disaster. With a narrow, twisting burn splitting the fairway the quandary is whether to hit a high fade and cross the ditch or lay up safely and take on the steep ramparts of the raised green. Big hitters will be tempted to have a go and most oft spend unproductive time searching for their ball in the flanking wood.
