Founded in 1899, the Tillicoultry Golf Club and course enjoy a backdrop more reminiscent of the Swiss Alps than Central Scotland. Indeed, this was confirmed when, on 20th June 1879 while passing by train, Queen Victoria described Tillicoultry as “lying in a wooded green valley at the foot of the [Ochil] hills, reminding me of Italy and Switzerland”.
The course itself is visually stunning, with magnificent views, some taxing golf and a fiercely proud reputation as a friendly welcoming club, Tillicoultry Golf Club, is a must for the keen amateur (and not so amateur) golfer.
Tillicoultry Golf Club’s parkland layout plays to 5,475 yards over the full 18 holes, the course is a 9 hole Par 34. Its third hole, Couthie Corner, is one to watch out for. It has a well-elevated tee and plays to a green guarded by bunkers; a large OB beech tree punishes wayward shots on the left.
