Golfing in
Cateran Country

Cateran Country in East Perthshire is the heartland of golf.

There are many great Parkland and heath courses and we are within easy reach of the coast, offering many Scottish Links courses to test your golf skills.

Famous courses nearby include the courses at Gleneagles, with the PGA Centenary Course hosting the 2014 Ryder Cup. Carnoustie is another high-profile course and its very challenging links setting is a well-known Open Championship venue. Perhaps the most famous of all and as easy to reach from Cateran Country is St. Andrews which staged the Open Championship in 2010.

However, there are a huge range of golfing choices in Cateran Country. At Rosemount in Blairgowrie, for instance, you'll really enjoy the individuality of the design of the holes cut through the woodlands. Then there is the novelty of playing in one of Britain's very highest courses, set amid spectacular mountain scenery at Dalmunzie by Glenshee.

Wherever you go, you're sure of a friendly welcome. Remember when staying in Blairgowrie or any of the other towns and villages to check out discount tickets and promotions for golfers such as the Perthshire Green Card, Scotland.
