Golf Perthshire

 

Welcome to Perthshire's Unique Inland City Island Golf Course

"A Jewel in Perth's Crown" the words of Perth Provost, John Hulbert describes perfectly the stunning attraction which awaits golfers of all standards.

The Golf Club was Founded in 1858 nearby at Perth's South Inch, but relocated to its current home on  Moncreiffe Island  in  1897, making it one of the oldest surviving Golf Clubs in the UK. Purpose-built, and believed to be the only Inland Island Golf Course in the country, it was designed by 'Old' Tom Morris, the legendary winner of multiple British Open Golf Championships.  With a warm welcome assured, the facilities at the club make it a very popular venue for casual visitors and visiting golf societies alike.

After your round you can enjoy a refreshing drink and appetising meal in our comfortable elevated lounge bar which boasts magnificent views down the starting and finishing holes.

An Introduction to the new World Handicap System (WHS)

The new World Handicap System (WHS) will be launched in Scotland, and the rest of GB and I, on 2nd November 2020.  

The current golf handicapping system maintained by CONGU will be replaced by WHS which will unify the six different structures currently in operation throughout the world of golf.

With one single, global system in place for the first time, golfers will be able to obtain and maintain a handicap index and use this on any course around the world. 

Developed by The R&A and USGA in close coordination with existing handicapping authorities, WHS will provide all golfers with a consistent measure of playing ability, with handicaps calculated in the same way wherever they are in the world.

Over the next two weeks, Scottish Golf will focus on one of the key features of WHS, helping golfers across Scotland better understand the new system for handicapping ahead of its launch.
