The Green Hotel in Kinross, Scotland, is home to two championship parkland golf courses, the Montgomery and the Bruce, set in the beautiful countryside along Loch Leven. The courses serve as an affordable, parkland option while staying in Perthshire near Gleneagles and St. Andrews.

Originally called the Blue Course, it was relaunched in 2006 as the Montgomery. The name comes from a family that has owned the estate around Loch Leven for the last three centuries.

The Montgomery is 6,508 yards and par 71. Undulating greens, streams and ponds are spread throughout the course. A number of holes have views over Loch Leven to the hills beyond. You can catch those sites through glimpses of the tree-lined fairways, which are on all of the holes - a mixture of cherries, oaks, beech, ash, pine, larch and spruce.

The Montgomery underwent various design changes in 2006, adding 19 new bunkers, four new white tees and a pond, all of which have enhanced the layout and made a difficult course even trickier. The keepers of the course are so confident of the changes they've made, they offer a "Montgomery Challenge": Anyone breaking 80 gets the next round free.

Kinross Golf Club has been in existence since 1888, but, like most courses in the area, the original course was lost to World War II.

Visiting golfers, clubs and societies are all welcome and tee times can be reserved at weekends as well as weekdays. Special discounted green fees are available for the residents of both the Green Hotel and the Windlestrae Hotel.

    I played both the courses at Kinross on Friday 20th April 2012 for the first time in 5 years and remembered why I had not played there for so long, the greens have no grass on them, just large bits of sand, the fairways are chewed up by using buggies in bad weather and the sand in the bunkers have came straight from a builders yard, some of the greens were so bad they might not recover and may have to be re-laid, what a mess. Good job the people in the clubhouse were friendly and efficient.
