Attraction details

The accessibity of the course is a pain, that's after you find the way in, don't trust your Satnav. Public car park,cross road up steps cross rail bridge, hope no one with golf trolley cones other way, a little tight. Down steps past allotments. Phew. The course was well maintained but with little variety. Can't comment on clubhouse as wasn't prepared to take off golf shoes to enter. Would have enjoyed a pint after the round but walking back to car for change of footwear, would have been prepared if we'd known.

If you are wanting to play this course you will have to park in one of the pay and display car parks then carry your clubs etc up steps along a narrow bridge down more steps and then about 500yds to the clubhouse. once in the clubhouse you will find the staff very friendy and welcoming and the food good.

I played this course recently and 5minute the walk alongside the river to the course was well worth the effort. It is a unique course being totally surrounded by the River Tay and, because it is completely flat, it is easy for anyone to play.
The course was in great condition for the time of year and the greens are some of the best I have played on. The members have obviously been putting in a lot of work to install new drainage and the course was open when most in the area were closed.
It is a fair test of golf with a lot of lovely holes - the par 3s are all very good holes.
The club was very welcoming and the food was of a very good standard and reasonably priced. The previous reviewer commented on dress code - most golfers will be aware that very few clubs welcome players in jeans or football shirts.
If you are in the area I would certainly recommend a visit.

I've enjoyed playing this relatively straightforward course but the clubhouse leaves a lot to be desired. Last time we went there, for a coffee and a light bite, they still enforced a "no jeans" policy. Complete joke give how old and tired the clubhouse is. Nothing special and the course sadly suffers badly from winter weather (flooded a lot of the time). And a pain to get to as there is no direct vehicle access.
