Piperdam is a Golf and Country Resort set up on the Western boundary of Dundee, surrounded by tasteful housing.
The “Wee Piper” is a good par 3, 9 hole golf course, with at least 3 or 4 of the holes easily being able to be suited to a decent 18 hole layout. Piperdam also has a fairly demanding 18 hole course as well.
Depending on the wind the first is a challenging opening hole, requiring a rescue or longer club, followed by a well architected 2nd hole. After that, holes 3-8 are in more open space and very forgiving off the tee. Only two of the holes present any “carry” requirements (2nd and 9th).
Although the course has views of the Piper Dam, the dam water doesn’t come into play at all. This is a fun little course, that will still challenge most handicaps.
My round was a better score than my general play would have expected, which was poor, helped by the fact that there are not many hazards.
This is a nice little course, but in my view only really worth the travel if you were combining a day at Piperdam, as it presents a nice accompaniment to the 18 hole course. It would make a good society day out.
