In their Words…….

We look forward to warmly welcoming you to play our fantastic three courses, all of which are rated in the top 50 Links courses in the UK and Ireland (Golf Digest June 2011). The Championship Course has recently (2012) been ranked at no 1 on the Rolex Top 1000 courses in the world. Carnoustie is open to the public and has three superb golf courses to cater for every golfer. The golf courses are open every day and we warmly welcome visiting golfers from all over the world.

The Championship Course has hosted seven Open Championships, one Ladies Open and one Seniors Open making it one of the very few to have done so in the UK. It is one of the three courses used for the annual Dunhill Links, the others being Kingsbarns and the Old Course in St Andrews and in 2018 The Open Championship will return to the course. Generally regarded as the toughest of the Open venues for those who understand the game a little more will know it is probably the fairest too. Without doubt though Carnoustie Championship Course does have the toughest closing stretch of holes anywhere and those finishing the final four holes with no more than a bogey should be suitably content with their play.

The Burnside is often overshadowed by its illustrious neighbour but it oozes character and from the back tees is a splendid test of golf. It was here in 1953 where the great Ben Hogan shot 70 to help him qualify for the Open Championship which he subsequently won. Many of the short holes would compare with any Championship Course anywhere with the 5th and 14th in particular providing dramatic challenges for the player who strives to gain his par 3. The finish is also strong with the 17th proving to be one of the hardest par 4’s that can be found anywhere in golf and many a score has been ruined by the out of bounds fence at the 18th.

The Buddon is the newest of the three courses at Carnoustie originally designed by Peter Alliss and the late Dave Thomas the course was opened in 1979. Since then many changes have taken place including the most recent $1m investment in two new holes bringing the course up to a very testing par 68.

Disappointed with the clubhouse this evening. Arrived for a drink and to watch the Rugby. Stood at the bar to review... the drinks menu to be told by a member of staff to take a seat and they would get our drinks order. Sat for 15 minutes and nobody came near us. The drinks menu is over priced - even more so when the service cannot meet basic expectations for service - we left.In addition there was no sound on for the Rugby. This highlights the lack of atmosphere and poor service. Not a good combination. Such a shame. The venue has so much potential but, it gave no incentive for me to go backread more

Excellent golf course. A must play if in Scotland. It's a tough track, but don't be intimidated by it's reputation.
