Lovely afternoon at Tarland
We enjoyed a fine afternoons golf at Tarland. My wife and I had played the course before but not for a number of years. The weather was lovely and the course was in excellent condition. Despite the pandemic the toilet facilities were available to us and signage was clear and easy to follow. Particularly enjoyed the greens, they were a little slower than other courses we have recently played but the ball went where you hit it so that is all you can really ask for. The only slight negative was a group of four, who seemed to have no understanding of golf etiquette. We teed off as they were leaving the ninth green and caught up with them at the 15th (they played just 6 holes in the time it took us to play 15). but refused to wave us through. We didn't let it spoil our afternoon though and wouldn't judge Tarland members based on our experience.
Fantastic course. Beautiful setting, well maintained. Don’t be put off that it’s only 9 holes or that it plays relatively short. The rough is tough! And the greens are challenging and you will struggle to keep the ball on the green the first time you’ll play it. I played it 3 times in 3 days and thoroughly enjoyed it.
A pleasure to play
Tarland golf course is a 9-hole (18-tees) layout. It is in great condition and well maintained.
All COVID-19 precautions were in place.
Met a few members finishing their round and they were very friendly..
It’s not a long course but very enjoyable to play.
