The eyes of half a billion people fell on Perth when the Gleneagles Hotel played host to the Ryder Cup in 2014. If you were one of those people, and you liked what you saw, then why not make time to visit the region for yourself and explore all that Perthshire has to offer.
Naturally, Gleneagles, with its four courses The PGA Centenary, King's, Queen's and Academy course will be top of your agenda. But it is also worth bearing in mind that the region is also home to over 30 terrific courses that will satisfy golfers of all tastes.
Murayshall, for example, has two excellent courses to pick from. Its championship course is an intoxicating challenge, whilst the shorter Lynedoch course is a strategic test for any golfer.
Auchterarder, which backs onto Gleneagles, is also held in high regards, particularly for its beautiful views towards Glendevon and the Ochill Hills. Spectacular sweeping views down the Tummel Valley lie in wait for visitors to Pitlochry Golf Club, a course that delivers a solid examination of any players ability.
