In their Words…….
The Golf Club was Founded in 1858 nearby at Perth’s South Inch, but relocated to its current home on Moncreiffe Island in 1897, making it one of the oldest surviving Golf Clubs in the UK. Purpose-built, and believed to be the only Inland Island Golf Course in the country, it was designed by ‘Old’ Tom Morris, the legendary winner of multiple British Open Golf Championships.
He was noted for incorporating natural features such as walls, burns and heather into his designs, and players of his new Island course had to contend with many mounds and banks as well as some trees and bunkers.
After your round you can enjoy a refreshing drink and appetising meal in our comfortable elevated lounge bar which boasts magnificent views down the starting and finishing holes.King James VI Golf Club
