The King James VI Golf Club, located in Perth, Scotland, is a historic and unique private golf course also open to visitors. It was founded in 1858.

The Tay River setting is notable as it is the country's only self-contained course on a river island. The Island course is only accessible by foot by a sidewalk on the side of a train bridge crossing the Tay.

Founded nearby at Perth's South Inch, King James VI was relocated to Moncrieffe Island in 1897. It was designed by Tom Morris, the legendary winner of multiple British Open Championships and a noted course designer.

Morris was noted for incorporating natural features such as walls, burns and heather into his designs, and players of his new island golf course had to contend with many mounds and banks as well as some trees and bunkers. King James VI is set on well-drained, parkland. Although it is set on an island, the water is not always obvious, as a wide variety of trees border the fairways and line many of the banks.

The par-70 golf course measures 6,038 yards from the back tees.
