In their Words…….
Originally laid out by Tom Morris of St Andrews in 1871 with alterations being made in 1926 by James Braid the course design is a combination by two golfing greats with no less than 9 Open Championships between them and is of a quality that it has hosted national championships and has twice been the venue for the Scottish PGA Championship, the Scottish Boys Stroke Play and the Girls Home Internationals. Most recently in July 2011 the Club hosted the Scottish Boys Under 16s Championship won by Ben Kinsley of St Andrews.
The Cunninghill course at Forfar is set on beautiful wooded heathland. The terrain is almost ‘links’ like with undulating fairways lined by Scots Pine and lovely views towards the Angus Glens. With very little walking between green and next tee, generous fairways and excellent greens this compact course is easily completed in 3 ½ hours and can be tackled twice in a day quite comfortably.
The course at Forfar has fairways that have the rig and furrow remaining from the time when the ground was used to cultivate flax. This gives the course its uniqueness and the fairways quite often present an up or down hill lie making the challenge of the course even more interesting!.
