    Originally designed by Dr Alister Mackenzie who also designed Cypress Point and Agusta National.
    Gary Player and Peter Alliss are honourary members.

    The Blairgowrie Golf Club were proud to have had Jessie Valentine MBE (1915–2006) as a distinguished member, and she was conferred Honorary Membership in 1968. She was inducted into the Scottish Sports Hall of Fame in 2003.

    Winner of the British Ladies Amateur golf championship in 1937, 1955 and 1958. In 1959 she was the first woman golfer to be awarded the MBE for services to golf; in 1967 she also received the Frank Moran Trophy for 'the Scot who has done most for the game of golf'. During the Second World War she drove a truck, and was clearly held in great esteem in the USA. So much so, in fact, that when her fiancee was captured and held as a POW, the Curtis sisters, who created golf's Curtis Cup, sent him food parcels every month.

    British Ladies Amateur Golf Champion, 1937, 1955, 1958
    Scottish Ladies Amateur Golf Champion 1938, 1939, 1951, 1953, 1955, 1956
    New Zealand Ladies Champion 1935
    French Ladies Champion 1936
    Represented GB & Ireland in the Curtis Cup 7 times between 1936 and 1958
