Old Tom Morris, James Braid

If the Old Alyth Course were any longer, it would be among Scotland’s ‘big league’. As it stands, Alyth is ideal outing for the golfing majority, a delightful yet challenging meander through some of Perthshire’s most scenic groves. Established by Old Tom Morris over 100 years ago and extended and remodelled by the late, great James Braid, this is a well-conceived heathland with character at every turn. What Alyth lacks in length, it makes up in cunning, a thinking golfer’s course where every swing counts. The emphasis is on precision rather than distance. Both however needed at the course's most demanding stretch, the 9th, 10th & 11th, two long par 4's followed by a good Par 5. With a tight tee shot in every instance, this is the area to make or break your card. There are one or two idiosyncrasies similar to what you find on any old Scottish course such as a blind tee shot or a concealed green but these are not frequent and only add to the excitement. Another hole worthy of note is the 5th, a short dogleg Par 4 but one that comes supplied with its fair share of drama and possible disaster. With a narrow, twisting burn splitting the fairway the quandary is whether to hit a high fade and cross the ditch or lay up safely and take on the steep ramparts of the raised green. Big hitters will be tempted to have a go and most oft spend unproductive time searching for their ball in the flanking wood.
