Kinross - The Bruce
Along with its sister course (The Montgomery), The Bruce forms part of a 36 hole golf layout within the Green Hotel Golf & Leisure Resort in Kinross.
Whilst The Bruce is generally regarded as being perhaps a couple of strokes easier to play than The Montgomery, partly due to it being a bit shorter in length, this course has many challenges of its own. Indeed visiting golfers seem almost equally divided when asked which course they prefer.
If The Montgomery is the sensible and determined sister destined for a life of professionalism and hard work, then The Bruce is the rebellious little sister more likely to stray off the beaten path. Proof is in the par-39 outward nine where you'll find four par-5s in the space of six holes, punctuated by the infamous Pond hole (6th).
So while occasional golfers often find The Bruce more to their liking, scoring well is no given. And arrogant golfers beware: four early par-5s does not mean four "easy birdie holes", and those who think so often find their card in shreds embarrassingly early in the round. However, spot the optimum scoring opportunities on The Bruce and you just might outsmart this feisty course.
