 Glenisla days as golf course could be numbered - up for sale with plannng consent for 215 houses

                       The distinctively designed Glenisla clubhouse
Glenisla golf course, Alyth in Perthshire is up for sale with the likelihood that the 186.5 acres of  land, on which also  stands a clubhouse, farmhouse and cottages, will be bought by a developer.
Planning consent for the building of 215 houses and mixed commercial use is in place for the buyer.
The course was designed by Tony Wardle and  was one of several golf courses built by the Glen Andrews company, which was run by Oldmeldrum man Graeme Webster and business partner Andrew Smith.
"We built the Glenisla course  in the early 1990s and it was opened around 1996," said golf course architect Webster who, as director of Team Niblick,  is currently in Ireland, making changes to the Ballybunion course.
"The original Glenislae owners were the Glenshee Chairlift Company but I am sure the complex h\as been sold on since then."

In 2014, Glenisla Golf Club won an award as the best value for money of Scottish courses with visitor green fees of less than £50.
