Rated at Time of Publishing – 4.28
Murrayshall is home to two fantastic 18-hole courses which require slightly different approaches but both make for thoroughly enjoyable rounds. The Murrayshall Championship Course will suit those who like to channel their inner Phil Mickelson’s and let rip with the driver. The wide fairways mean that a straight tee shot is not always the necessary play. The Lynedoch Course is more tree lined and features much narrower fairways. This course will test your ball striking and requires golfers to keep the ball in play. With 40 rooms and suites on offer, the Murrayshall House Hotel is a luxurious base and is perfect for relaxation after a long day on the course.
Kinross Golf Courses
Rated at Time of Publishing – 4.41
Kinross Golf Courses is formed of two parkland courses named ‘The Montgomery’ and ‘The Bruce Course’. The former is the oldest course at the venue and features plenty of well-placed bunkers and water hazards to ensure that golf isn’t too straightforward. This course is ideal for all levels of golfers and will prove good challenge even to low handicappers. The Bruce Course is seen a slightly simpler task whilst still requiring golfers to draw on all aspects of their game. There are five par-5 holes on the course, meaning if you can hit a long, straight tee shot, you may well be in with a chance of a birdie or two. There are two hotels just a stones’ throw away from the courses as Kinross. The Green hotel and the Windlestrae Hotel both boast a comfortable atmosphere and are perfect for a golfing trip to Kinross.
