The golf courses at Blairgowrie
The original Lansdowne course (later to become Rosemount) was designed by Dr. Alistair McKenzie, the renowned golf course architect who also designed Cypress Point, Augusta National and many others.
In 1930 the club decided to expand the facilities yet again and engaged James Braid to re-design the course to devise a new 18 hole layout with provision for a new nine hole course. For what then became the 18 hole Rosemount course, Braid utilised some of the holes from the original Lansdowne course – the 17th is classic McKenzie design - and incorporated some completely new holes. The nine hole course became the Wee Course virtually as it remains today.
Pitlochry Golf Course
With sweeping views down the Tummel Valley and in the shadow of the Ben Y Vrackie, the course has been entertaining visitors and members for over one hundred years. The course was laid out in 1908 by the renowned golf architect, Willie Fernie of Troon, opened in 1909, and later modernised by Major Cecil Hutcheson.
It has been played by the likes of Harry Vardon, Walter Hagen, Max Faulkner, Bob Charles and Pitlochry’s own Ryder Cup player John Panton. Pitlochry can also lay claim to having Walker Cup player Cecil Bloice and founder member of the Ladies European Tour Cathy Panton-Lewis as honorary members.
