59 BLAIRGOWRIE – Rosemount

Architect: Mackenzie 2006 position: 54 Stats: 6,689 yds; par 72; SSS 72 GF: £25-£70 T: 01250 872622 W:

The Rosemount course winds serenely through mature pines. The tight fairways demand accuracy but finding the short grass will reward you with a shot from the finest turf.

The greens are always immaculate and in the summer can be extremely fast. Forging a good score here requires creative shot-making and good scrambling abilities.

For me, one of the course’s most attractive qualities is its variety: par 4s from 285 up to 475 yards, four par 3s and four par 5s.

Every hole demands careful thought and a unique approach. In my opinion, it’s one of Scotland’s finest inland courses. FB

+ Peaceful setting; excellent clubhouse; attractive tree-lined layout - Can get quite busy in the summer months

Fergus once shanked a ball from just over Granny Clark's Wynd on the 18th of the Old Course that struck the St Andrews Golf Club and rebounded into the Valley of Sin, from where he saved par. Who says there's no golfing god?
