King James VI golf course is the only island golf course in Britain and one of only two in the world. It lies in the middle of the River Tay in the ancient city of Perth in Scotland. The golf club was formed in 1858 when members played over the nearby South Inch. they moved to their island course in... More

We had a great day out. Played full greens although winter ones were in operation. Condition of the course was as expected. Members of the club - very friendly. Would come back in the summer. The course is about 10 min walk from the car park (pay and display), you have to climb up the bridge which may be a... More

Getting to the Course was the worst part with trying to get a trolley up and down the stairs by the railway line. The course was good and the food in the clubhouse was basic but good. We had a bacon roll and coffee to start and were well looked after by the members. I would go back.

Went to the 2 man texas scrmble 10th of August, worst trip ever. You need to park in a car park and take everything up steep steps, then walk a good 1000yds then take them down slippy steel steps so steep they are dangerous. Then you get to the shop and sign in and get handed a card with no... More

You need to do your homework before you go to this course. You have to cross the river on the rail bridge to the island in the middle. Lovely course and friendly clubhouse.

Getting to the course would be my only criticism of this course. The bridge is hard to climb and the walk a bit too long. However the course itself was great value for money on "try out Tuesdays" and the welcome was second to done. A fair test of golf for those who hit the ball straight and a real... More

Well worth the walk across the railway bridge over the River Tay. If you've got a camera with you stop half way across the bridge and you can get a brilliant photo looking over the Tay towards Perth. A very pleasant walk along the path which runs along the side of the Tay to the Golf Club.You will get a... More

Love the wee walk over the railwaybridge across the river and then past allotments.... beat that augusta! Course is flat but hively enjoyable and some holes not as short as youd think. For an autumn day the greens were in stunning condition. Nice peaceful setting for a round of golf..especially if you have 241 vouchers. Would rather play here than... More

I reviewed this course earlier in the year and commented on the work done to improve the course. I played it again last week and , in almost 45 years of playing golf, I have never seen greens so good in October. Do not miss this course off your schedule if you are in the area.
