11 reviews of Crieff Golf Club

Played the Ferntower at Crieff on Sunday 28th October, weather forecast wet almost all over Scotland central belt, and took a punt on Crieff, and got lucky with the weather.

The course itself was very good, summer greens in play on 17 holes, and only 1 winter green not due to course condition, but due to mainenance/drainage works, which I always think is a goods sign. How many courses don't bother ?

Fairways were in good condition and quite forgiving, rough not too penal, greens in very good condition, ran pretty true, and had enough slopes/contours to make you think about it.

Pro shop and bar staff were friendly and welcoming, definately a place I'd recommend, and jump at the chance of a return visit.

Crieff Golf Club - Ferntower Course, is a hidden gem of Scotland. We played it 23/8/10 (raining - but I guess we are in Scotland)and were made very welcome. The Pro shop staff couldn't be more helpful. As for the course itself, very well maintained and greens in good nick.
I would recommend people give this course a try, I'm sure they wont be disappointed!

Played Crieff mid June on day 1 of 5 day trip in light in mainly showery weather.
First impressions were good, as catering staff very welcoming and pleasant, as were the staff in the well stocked pro shop. Decent practice facilities and pretty good visitors locker rooms. Catering more than adequate if not spectacular.
The course itself is fairly straight forward. Hit it straight around here and you'll score well, as it doesn't play long at all. Miss fairways, however, and you'll soon be running over par numbers up for fun as trees line the majority of holes, especially on the back 9. Position off the tee is more important than length around here.
I personally thought the first couple of holes were a bit weak, and the last just plain silly with internal out of bounds left, right and behind the green. No risk reward to the hole, just an 8 iron wedge finish, which I think is poor for the last hole of any course.
Greens were in pretty good condition, though they could have been a little quicker. They were true enough though, unlike my putting stroke on the day! Tee beds well maintained, as was the course generally.
We played as a 3 ball behind a number of 4 balls and had nowhere to go, and those in front of us were contantly waiting to play shots themselves in fairness. On one hole, the twelth from memory, we must have waited 15 to 20 minutes to play an approach shot to the green. It didn't stop 3 local members behind us though firing into us on every hole on the back 9, on one in particular the ball actually pitched the green as one of us was stepping away having just put the flag back in the hole. We made it clear we weren't happy about it and they just moaned it was taking a ridiculous length of time to get around - something we agreed with but, as we pointed out, could do nothing about.
All in all though, I wouldn't let the actions of 3 people deter me from going back again.

"The top of the course is also the location of one of Ferntower's best holes, the fourteenth. 'Ferny Den' is a lovely 324-yard par 4 which starts from an elevated tee. the first shot travels down to a wide fairway, and the second shot comes back up to a raised, narrow green fronted by bunkers and backed by a steep hillside. as much as the shots will challenge the golfer, the hole offers other attractions as well. Great views of the valley and hills south grabbed our attention, as did the 14th Century ruined stable of Ferntower House just to the right of the tee box.

I just played the course during Open week and it was excellent. Lush fairways and fast greens. My playing partner was even more pleased as he broke 80 for the first time with 79 !! The weather was beautiful too - we'll definitely go back again soon.

I take a party of 12 to Scotland each year and we've played Crieff each of the last 3.
A lovely lay-out,always in good condition and good food in a splendid clubhouse.
Undulating but not hilly and a suitable course for any standard of golfer.

I played the course on 11 May 1999. The course was in excellent condition despite some haevy rain in the previous two weeks. It was a credit to the greenkeeping staff. Excellent clubhouse facilities as well and I agree with the other correspondents that it is worth playing.

What a pretty course. After playing a number of Links courses, it was refreshing to play this lovely, hillside course with lush fairways and good greens. This course will always hold a special place in my heart as it was the first time i broke 80, with a 79, and also the first time i ever got an eagle. It is a little bit out of the way, but worth the drive. Mike Rasmussen Vancouver Canada <McQueen@cafe.net>
