Set amidst the Perthshire countryside, Blairgowrie lies at the foothills of the Grampian Mountains and its golf club is home to a pair of fine inland championship courses.

Rosemount can trace its origins back to the club's inception in 1889, but its layout today is the work of Dr. Alister MacKenzie and James Braid. Measuring 6,630 yards, the course pitches and rolls through avenues of trees, offering a good variety of holes. The best is saved to last, with the par 3 17th being noteworthy for its two-tier green.

The par 72 Lansdowne opened in 1979. Running to over 6,850 yards it is slightly longer than its older brother, but accuracy is again required as the golfer threads their ball along the tree-lined fairways. Although serving up a taxing round, it's one that's a joy to play.
