In Volume 1 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.
“Just at the start of the drive north to the Highlands, this is one of the most charming mountain-goat courses to be found. The first five holes are a relentless climb, but once you get to the top it is an exhilarating ride, including the blind par-4 10th, a hole big enough hole for any course, and the short drop-shot 16th. The short par-4 finisher hurdles a swift-flowing brook just in front of the picturesque chalet clubhouse.”
Pitlochry Golf Club received a score of 5 out of 10 from Tom Doak and a score of 4 out of 10 from one of his co-authors.
