These 54 holes offer a world-class golfing experience to a broad spectrum of enthusiasts, from novices through to the finest players in the world.
Designed by the legendary James Braid, the heather and heathland based King’s has enthralled golfers for a hundred years with 18 regal holes you’ll want to play again and again. This truly is one of the best golf courses in Scotland.

Home to high ridges, woodland settings, lochans and water hazards, it’s a place that will test and enchant all at once, thanks to the glorious Perthshire countryside.
Created by 18-time major winner, Jack Nicklaus, this modern masterpiece of a golf course played host to the heart stopping excitement of both the Ryder and Solheim Cups. Now comes your chance to follow in the footsteps of champions.
