About

Holes 18
Type Private
Style Parkland
Par 71
Length 6493 yards
Slope 133
Rating 0.0

The Ferntower Course is the 18-hole championship layout at Crieff Golf Club, which has been voted 29th best golfing facility in the UK by the readers of Golf World magazine. Ferntower is built on gently sloping parkland, with views over the Strathearn Valley that dramatically improve and unfold as the round progresses. With mostly wide fairways and the rough cut short enough to avoid prolonged ball searching, Ferntower appeals to all categories of handicapper. The par-71 golf course starts with a par-3 hole, a change from the norm. Although the opening hole measures 163 yards, it's all uphill, and there are three par 5s, among the remaining holes on the front nine.

Crieff Ferntower

Played at the start of November course in excellent condition given the time of year and the terrible weather we have been having. A long course but with little difficulties, rough very forgiving allowing a good pace of play. Varied and interesting hole layout, particularly on the back 9 holes. If golf not good scenery certainly is. The golf pro extremely well coming and helpful.
Excellent clubhouse facilities. Staff extremely pleasant and very good catering. A superb course to play with great facilities and very friendly staff an excellent place for a days golfing

Best course I've played this year

So this was my 20th course I've played in Scotland this year and I can honestly say it's the best one yet.

I was recommended by a friend who played it years ago and as I was in the area I thought i'd give it a go. Can't complain at all, fairways in excellent condition, greens were immaculate with perfect smooth roll, even I could putt on them.

There were three down pours during my round and even that didn't take away from my enjoyment, greens held up really well and apart from being slightly slower which you'd expect after some rain you wouldn't really know it had poured down. This is testament to the green keeping staff.

Tricky middle stint for three/four holes which were long especially into a wind and for a mid-high handicapper like myself you'd struggle for par. Nice finish were you can pick up strokes though.

Didn't use the clubhouse but pro shop was good, well stocked with everything you'd need and the changing rooms were nice too. Practice facilities to hand also meaning everything in one place.

A great parkland course.

I played with my partner on a warm sunny day. Neither of us played particularly well but we both enjoyed the game. We played late in the day at a reduced rate and it was excellent value. The greens were some of the best we saw during our holiday in Scotland.
We didn't use the off course facilities, so can't make any comment.

Crieff a challeging but fair course.

Crieff is a challenging but fair course. I used to be a member there before moving away, the course is in fantastic condition and the club has made a lot of improvements since we last played there over a year ago. Pro and staff first class very friendly and extremely helpful as are the clubhouse staff.
Book now you will not regret it, a great course, great challenge and great people.
We paid £60 for a 4 ball fantastic value.

Worth a visit

Stayed at Crieff hydro and Ferntower is next door. Also Dornoch ( 9 holes) but give that a miss. Ferntoower is challenging with long par 5's and excellent greens. Parlklandish so very little rough and generous faiways means not searching for balls every hole!

Time well spent

This course is a pleasure to play and offers a challenge to all levels. Not too testing for a high handicap but offers good scoring opportunities for better players. In excellent condition. Fairways well presented and greens interesting. Pro was very helpful and clubhouse welcoming. View of valley stunning from the high points of course. If playing take note of the slopes as ball can run away.
