Course Fly-Past - a brief tour of parts of the courseclick for video in new window
St Fillans Golf Club is situated in the heart of Highland Perthshire, in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland with magnificent lochs and towering mountains. The village of St Fillans sits at the eastern end of Loch Earn, its rows of houses, hotels and guesthouses enjoying the fabulous view up the loch. Tucked away across the River Earn is the nine-hole St Fillans course.
Considering the imposing hills that surround the course, the terrain is surprisingly level, and is popular with those new to the sport yet proves to be a difficult course to score well on for the more experienced player.
At this nine hole course each hole is very challenging and a combination of course design, superb green keeping and breathtaking scenery keep players on the course as long as possible.
Sandy Lyle Charity Day
What an amazing day it was at St Fillans golf club. 112 players through the course! The day commenced at 9am with Sandy Lyle driving off at the 1st tee with his hickory driver, a phenomenal shot which shot way over the road gently and perfectly turning left towards the elevated first pin.....all players watched in awe hoping this would inspire their own first tee shot! Play commenced in sunshine allowing the course to show itself off to those visiting for the first time....weather was good to us until mid afternoon when the heavens opened giving players a huge challenge over three holes, it was touch and go whether play would continue but our course did us proud with the greens sooking up any residual water and the late afternoon and early evening play continued in unbroken sunshine ( Scottish weather at its best!) Sandy Lyle met every player individually, gave tips to those requesting them, shared stories and anecdotes and walked the field throughout the day watching play....for some players this was their excuse for thinning the ball, shanking the ball, skying the ball ..... all players were delighted to see Sandy take an interest in their game. The junior teams arrived late afternoon from Crieff and Callander, Sandy took great interest in this match and gave pre-match tips to all players. This was a great match to follow, the teams of boys headed out and showed us from the first tee that there was some talented golfers among them, the drives from some of the boys would put our existing club champions to shame! Over nine holes a very tight fought match was won by only three points by a well deserving Crieff team, Sandy presented their trophy and medals accompanied by St Fillans oldest member Ian Pinkerton. Players enjoyed a hot spit roast, drinks and took part in a fundraising auction before the announcement of winners of The Sandy Lyle Biennial Cup 2015.... we are delighted that in our inaugural year the cup was won by one of our home teams Jill Lothian, Malcolm Baillie, Keith Stewart and Mos Pugh with an aggregate score of 134. The winner of the individual highest score was Nicola Robertson from Stirling GC. Sandy presented the trophies and the event was brought to an end by Club Captain, Keith Stewart. Thanks to everyone who supported the event, players, organisers, caterers, greens staff, prize donators, photographers and volunteers. Special thanks to Scott Hastings, STV Glasgow & Visit Scotland for assisting in raising the profile of our event but most of all to Sandy Lyle who went way beyond the call of duty, a true gentleman and great friend of St Fillans Golf Club.
