Monifieth Golf Links - The Ashludie Course
The Ashludie Golf Course at Monifieth Golf Links is a compact and challenging test with tight fairways. Designed by James Braid, the golf course requires more brain than brawn, demanding accurate iron shots to the small, tricky greens.
The shorter Ashludie course next door to the Medal is an entertaining, if quite short, venue. A par-66 golf course of 5,123 yards, there are no par 5s but several very good par 4s, and four par 3s.
The holes to watch out for are the 13th playing to a plateau green and the 15th, a dogleg par-4 turning left where good positioning of the drive is essential.

Fantastic day out
This is my fifth outing here, and I just love the course. It's perfect for the shorter hitter but don't think that makes it easy. Each hole is different and the greens are excellent, albeit,today they were slower than in previous outings.
I'm! Be back in the spring.
Fantastic day out
This is the fourth time I've played the Ashludie with a friend who used to be the steward at the Monifieth golf club. It is a great test and it allows shorter hitters to reach most of the greens in regulation. I just love this course, each hole is very different. If I lived in this part of the world this would be where I would play golf.
Wonderful place would highly recommend to anyone
Great wee course, a bit tricky at times, very nice greens. Would highly recommend this course.
Greens were in immaculate condition. As good as I have seen this summer. Rolling so true and consistent. Brilliant.
The dry summer has made for real linksy conditions and was a great golf experience.
Enjoyable short course and exceptional value
The £15 twilight fee at Monifieth's Ashludie may be the best value I've seen in Scotland. What a treat it was getting out at 6:30 and getting in all 18. The links couldn't have been a better pick after a full day of work at Carnoustie down the road. Greens were perfect; I can't imagine they are much better at The Open. You've got to use all the clubs in your bag (there are two stout par 4s that played into the wind), but there are a lot of drive-and-pitch holes. It's great for working on the short game as the green complexes are all quite varied. I couldn't have enjoyed the evening more.
Short course but nice design. Played in wet conditions. Greens excellent. Had a good time. Staff helpful.
Great Day Out
I purposely played the 'small' course s my Wife is a beginner and had never played a proper links course. It was in very good condition and despite it's length there are some tricky holes. The catering in the Grange clubhouse was great value and good quality.
Nestled by its big brother the Ashludie is a fantastic golf course. Small in stature it may be but it is a great test of short iron play.
Beautifully presented with very friendly staff from the starter to the pro shop and associated clubs.
Will definitely be back....go play it!
A reasonably pleasant and easy course to play
The Ashludie is really the poor relation to the Medal course which it sits alongside. The holes are quite short so you don't have many chances to play much more than a driver, mid iron, pitch and putter. The course is well-trodden and fairly worn in some places which can make some shots a bit difficult. The one saving grace is the putting greens which are generally in very good condition. If you are looking for pleasant, fairly easy course to play then Ashludie is a cheap and cheerful option.
Short and challenging
Good practice for a medal course
