Three winter greens and mats butbit was still a great day. The green overdressed and probably could have expected better course conditions at this time of year. All that said, we paid £12 to play, what is a very very nice course. Staff were great, thanks for a great day. Rdc

Played the course in a steady rain, which didn't really change our enjoyment. Introduction to both the course and facilities was poor. The course doesn't have sprinklers between tee and green so the course was pretty poor in places, the greens were also suffering when compared with similar courses at this time of year. Hopefully only due to the harsh dry summer. and it can recover into next season. The course is quite short but does have a few really good holes, I particularly liked the tree lined area around 8-12.

First time at The beautiful setting in Auchterarder. Great layout and well presented. Obviously the course has struggled over the summer and lack of water has caused issues on tees and greens. Shame as I was looking forward to the experience. Golfers were friendly and let me play through which was good. Pro shop, bar staff and catering staff all welcoming. Great clubhouse. Look forward to playing when the course recovers.

Excellent day out playing at Auchterarder Golf Club!

Enjoyed an excellent bacon roll and coffee before setting out.

Greens are having problems I hear but that did not affect our general enjoyment.

One small point was no towel available for visitors for an after game shower.

Otherwise a great day out in the Perthshire hills. Love the place.

On arrival we received a very warm welcome from the professional and the staff in the clubhouse.

We then went and played the course which was in excellent condition with the greens playing quite quick due to the very warm weather.Great layout and a great test of golf.Will definitely be back.

Great scenery and setting as would be expected from a course that runs next door to the championship course at Gleneagles. Staff were very friendly and the food in the clubhouse was very good. My only issue was the condition of some of the greens. A number of the greens had been badly damaged with what looked like tractor grooves noted in many places. This made putting a lottery on those affected. In prime condition £50 per round would have been acceptable but not for what we encountered on the day. I would advise anybody to check in advance before booking.

After much deliberation we settled on Auchterarder to use our AG vouchers for a free round and weren't disappointed.

A friendly welcome and an earlier start than booked as the course was quiet. For the time of year it was immaculate, excellent tees and fairways and not a drop of water in sight.

The only mild complaint was the greens had been sanded and weren't 100% true.

Other than that a lovely track that is nice and compact and a good mix of holes and a fairly easy walk.

Had played the course over 15 years ago so couldn't remember much about it other than the wall at the 1st. Will definitely be back next summer to play again.

Highly recommended.

Absolute gem of a course . Great lay out every hole interesting and not a bad hole on the course. Played course in November and will still in great condition and very well looked after. The greens has been cored but that is only to be expected at this time of year. Greens looked great with some nice undulations and would love to come back and play it in the summer. Overall great course.

I've played Auchterarder a few times and do really enjoy the course as a good test and good clubhouse facilities. Staff were really friendly both in the clubhouse and in the pro shop. We had lunch and the kids were allowed on the putting green before I headed out.

My only gripe was that with the Sunday medal on the pace of play was poor. I was out on my own and had to wait and pretty much every hole. I can't complain too much as the staff had put me out early as there was a gap but by the 4th hole I had caught the group in front who couldn't really let me play through as they were waiting too. Some guys need to just get on with it!

Great course, immaculate greens.. will definitely be back.

Overall the course was disappointing . I wouldn't have been happy paying full price. The tees and greens were in very poor condition and the course layout was horrible. Tees right next to greens and 2 tees next to each other meaning at some holes you had to wait 5 minutes before you took your shot. Very slow play from 4 balls infront and me and partner were only a 2 ball so would have expected to be let through but we wernt. Being reasonable drivers ment we had to wait for long periods before we could play. Overall for being beside Gleneagles I expected alot more.

This is a great course and plays fantastic

It sits alongside the pga of Gleneagles and having played all the Gleneagles courses

Auchterarder does not sit in their shadow

£ for £ it is actually better value

And a must play if in the area

Played as a two ball and found the course in great condition for the time of year. Fairways running well, greens faster than expected. Warm welcome from the pro, no issues with our booking. Members we encountered were friendly and welcoming. I had played the course several years ago and thoroughly enjoyed my return visit. Would recommend to golfers of all abilities and will probably return in the future.
