Properties for the eagle eyed golfer

The recent resounding success of the European Ryder Cup team at Gleneagles has reignited the nations passion for golf and with it the desire to live overlooking a course. Apart from the obvious advantage for those who prefer an early tee time and enjoy the 19th hole there are other significant advantages. Golf is by the very nature of the rules of the game quiet and remarkably courteous. From tee to green there is an unusual combination of keen competition and amazing tranquillity. This air or peace and tranquillity spreads to the surrounding area and properties backing onto a course have the additional benefits of a rural outlook which is likely have even more protection from development than that offered by many of our planning laws.
