#9: Aberfeldy Golf Club, the True Diamond

#9: A True Diamond on the River Tay, Aberfeldy Golf Club

It was another beautiful morning as we arrived in the lovely town of Aberfeldy. We made our way to the Aberfeldy Golf Club at the far end of town and I got a tingle in my soul as I thought of the illustrious words of Robbie Burns, Scotland’s National poet,

It’s a truly beautiful course in excellent condition whose magic stays with you long after you depart.

It is located on the road to Dryburn Abbey and I have passed it several times and always longed to call in for an ‘emergency nine’ holes. So today was the day, and it did not disappoint.

St. Boswells’ Lady Secretary Sue afforded us a warm welcome. It [..]
