Crieff Ferntower is rated as one of Scotland’s top inland courses. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, at the heart of golfing Perthshire, it provides a feeling of escape as well as spectacular views.
Built on gently sloping parkland, once the grounds of Ferntower House, the course provides a fair, but challenging experience for all levels of golfer. Excellent playing conditions and friendly reception to visitors led to the club being voted as one of the top UK golf courses by readers of Golf World magazine.
CRIEFF GOLF CLUB HISTORY
A product of the golfing boom, which opened half of the country's present courses between 1880 and 1909, Crieff Golf Club was established in 1891 after St. Andrews' Golf Professional, Old Tom Morris carved a nine-hole course out from what was East Ledbowie Park.
The club's existing courses, Ferntower and Dornock, stretch over the restorative grounds of the Hydro, the grand Victorian Spa, which opened in 1856. Since the mid 19th Century, visitors seeking refuge from the encroaching cityscapes of Edinburgh and Glasgow have assembled on Crieff's rugged Highland line; once an ancient frontier settlement and market town, Crieff maintains its reputation as a place of gathering.
