Good Course, Good surfaces ..... some winter greens.
Played as we were looking for a course with nice surfaces to play on at this time of year & came across Panmure. They understandably had maintenance carried out the greens but they were still good to putt on. Tee's etc were cut very tight & a pleasure to hit off.
The course is an easy walk, No hill's at all, Lot's of lovely holes with plenty definition however the last 4 holes don't live up to the rest of the course.
Generally very positive experience & for the rate of £35 I would recommend it, To our annoyance, without being notified, There were 3 winter greens in play & quite a few more winter tee's that substantially changed the holes. 1 winter green is understandable as the fringe/surround was getting re-turfed and the greenkeeping staff looked to have done a tremendous job however there seemed no reason for the other 2. Especially disappointing when one of them was the 6th which is named Hogan after Ben Hogan. He spent 2 weeks at Panmure before the 1953 Open at Carnoustie practicing & the 6th was his favorite hole in the area & a bunker was added at his recommendation, see pictures.
Overall, Good course, good surfaces, complimentary range balls before you play ... just call before traveling to see if it's the full course or not.
Carnoustie's nearest peer
Historic Panmure is the nearest links to Carnoustie and it's fairly similar in its low-lying terrain and challenge. Unlike Carnoustie however it's an out-and-back routing (Monifieth's links, the club's original home, backs up to it on its west side). It has a really solid middle stretch of holes starting with the 6th. Ben Hogan was smitten by it during his practice here and so was I. Like Carnoustie, Panmure is generally flat and hidden from the sea so it lets its layout (by James Braid) do the talking. Low-handicappers will love the true test and everyone will love the condition of the course. If you want more scenery and lower green fees (and a bit easier links), head east to Montrose and Arbroath.
Panmure a hidden gem in Angus
What an absolute gem of a golf course. The course was in excellent condition and the layout is absolutely superb. The greens were magnificent. Apart form the Championship course at Carnoustie, the best golf course in this wonderful part of Scotland. We were warmly welcomed by the members and staff. An excellent days golf.
Played Panmure for the first time today and enjoyed it a lot. For this time of year the course was in pretty good condition. Will return to play again in the high season as would be good to see it at it's best.
