What the club says: If the Old Alyth Course were any longer, it would be among Scotland’s ‘big league’. As it stands, Alyth is ideal outing for the golfing majority, a delightful yet challenging meander through some of Perthshire’s most scenic groves. Established by Old Tom Morris over 100 years ago and extended and remodelled by the late, great James Braid, this is a well-conceived heathland with character at every turn.

What Alyth lacks in length, it makes up in cunning, a thinking golfer’s course where every swing counts. The emphasis is on precision rather than distance. Both however needed at the course's most demanding stretch, the 9th, 10th & 11th, two long par 4's followed by a good Par 5. With a tight tee shot in every instance, this is the area to make or break your card. There are one or two idiosyncrasies similar to what you find on any old Scottish course such as a blind tee shot or a concealed green but these are not frequent and only add to the excitement.

Another hole worthy of note is the 5th, a short dogleg Par 4 but one that comes supplied with its fair share of drama and possible disaster. With a narrow, twisting burn splitting the fairway the quandary is whether to hit a high fade and cross the ditch or lay up safely and take on the steep ramparts of the raised green. Big hitters will be tempted to have a go and most oft spend unproductive time searching for their ball in the flanking wood.

Well kept course, nice to play, nice clubhouse and facilities also pro

Played Alyth for the first time, I would recommend the course. Very well kept a credit to the green keeping staff. Well stocked pro shop. Clubhouse is very nice with good facilities and friendly staff.

There is also a range over the car park from the first tee for warming up and putting green.

Quite magnificent course. Tight and tricky to start with and extends itself in the back nine. An almost perfect mix of four shortish par fours, four medium length and four around a quarter of a mile long with two par fives and a quartet of challenging par threes.
At 6000 yards off the yellows it is long enough and perfect for a two rounder group day out.
The clubhouse is excellent.

Course is very short and extremely cramped (adjoining tees and greens). The condition of the fairways and greens is good but there are many fine courses in this area that offer a better challenge and much better value. Price has been over egged. Best thing was the catering.

Excellent course with every hole quite different in character. Also a good mix of length of holes with 2 par 5's 4 quite long par 4's over 400 yards some medium and short par 4's as well as very tricky par 3's. The greens are extremely tricky and it all adds up to a great experience amongst stunning scenery. Ideal for outings as two rounds in a day is very possible - no great walks from green to tee and not too hilly. The clubhouse is spacious and the bar is one of the nicest.

A typical parkland course. I was with two friends on a weeks golfing trip to Scotland. I picked this due to the positive comments on their website. i must admit I found most of the holes boring. It is well maintained but a bit over priced at £35 for a weekday round, and £25 fora buggy. the locals were friendly enough, and the club house very nice. . Would I return, probably not.

Very nice parkland course with most (if not all) holes having tree lined fairways. Yardage is slightly a bit short for big hitters but greens, bunkers, fairways are very good. My only gripe is that the price is a little high £40. Definitely worth a visit.
