Blairgowrie Lansdowne has the reputation of being a great competition course after hosting the Scottish Amateur Championship in 2013 and The PGA Championship Final in 2014. The course is long and tight – perfect for those seeking to test their golfing skills.
Designed by the respected partnership of Peter Allis and Dave Thomas, the course is a challenging test routed through swathes of pine and silver birch trees. With smaller greens than its older neighbour, the Lansdowne provides a proper but pleasurable test for golfers of all levels. The Lansdowne is a cracking track with plenty to occupy the golfing mind. If you’re taking a golfing break in Carnoustie Country, be sure to include it in your itinerary.
For both the Rosemount and Lansdowne courses at Blairgowrie, the dangers are similar, with positional play from the tee being vital. Opting for a 3-wood or a long iron instead of driver is often the smart play.
Accuracy is essential as the Lansdowne is one of the most unforgiving golf courses in Perthshire. Sacrificing length for accuracy, though leaving yourself long approach shots, is often the sensible choice.
