The more senior of our two courses at Kinross is The Montgomery.
The Par 72 is 6,508 yards and provides some unique challenges for the more accomplished player with very few golfers managing to break 80.
The par 4 18th at 443 yards!
There are 19 strategically placed bunkers and a pond to make life a little more interesting for golfers but perhaps the biggest aggravator is the very last hole. Many golfers have stood on the 18th tee with a decent scorecard, only to have their hopes dashed with the brutish 443 yards to a difficult green on this par 4.
The best par 3 on The Montgomery is the 4th, just 139 yards uphill to a green that slopes considerably from front to back. Any shot that finds the front right bunker is almost instantly a bogey and chipping around this green is never easy.
The favourite par 4 on the course is the 16th. Placement off the tee is vital and there is a long iron approach to a well-guarded green. Make the green in two and walking off with a par is usually a result.
The 11th is The Montgomery's best par-5 with its pond that makes this 498 yard hole a great risk and reward test. It is especially so for those playing the yellow tees at 465 yards: given the right wind and ground conditions, it will be very tempting to fetch the green in two. But beware - the second shot must be perfect or it will likely find a watery grave in the pond.
