Founded in 1899, the club and course enjoy a backdrop more reminiscent of the Swiss Alps than Central Scotland. Indeed, this was confirmed when, on 20th June 1879 while passing by train, Queen Victoria described Tillicoultry as “lying in a wooded green valley at the foot of the [Ochil] hills, reminding me of Italy and Switzerland”.
The course itself is visually stunning, with magnificent views, some taxing golf and a fiercely proud reputation as a friendly welcoming club, Tillicoultry Golf Club, is a must for the keen amateur (and not so amateur) golfer.
The course is well maintained, thanks to our dedicated head greenkeeper Davy, who has nurtured it for well over 20 years now! Worthy of note are its 2 par 3 holes -neither of which are a pushover and the relatively short holes are a feature that present a challenge for all levels of golfer, accuracy being a key element when playing here, particularly for the low handicap golfer.
Our friendly clubhouse is a welcoming environment, providing refreshments etc at reasonable prices. See more here best golf irons for mid handicapper 2018.
