Gleneagles. Three fabulous courses, the Kings Course, Queens Course and PGA Centennial Course, home to the Ryder Cup 2014, highlight this beautiful place in the Ochil Hills which turns purple every August when the heather blooms. James Braid designed the Kings and Queens courses.

Rosemount. Located in Blairgowrie, two courses remind us of Pinehurst with lots of trees lining the fairways.

Crieff. Crieff offers two parkland courses sitting on the slope of a hill, The Ferntower Course and the Donock Course. Both offer excellent views over Strathearn valley .

Downfield. This is a top-20 course on the north side of Dundee. In a parkland setting, this course is usually not played by Americans. Downfield is the venue for the Scottish Amateur Championship and the Amateur International. Extensive practice areas.

Loch Lomond. Hey now! If you know a member (and we do), you can play this fantastic, beautiful, most difficult course designed by Tom Weiskopt. The course is a virtual arboretum covered in rhododendron.
