Highlight of a trip to Carnoustie Country
With The Open ongoing at Carnoustie, it afforded us a chance to check out the local links, and Montrose, although the farthest drive from Carnoustie, was the highlight. The opening four holes are as good as it gets in the area in terms of starting out. The course's unusual landscape features the highest holes by the sea, and then the remainder of the course is well below and plays closer to the town. I tried to explain it to my playing partner as a kind of "reverse Dornoch" but that phrase might need fine-tuning. The flatter holes certainly have character as well, like the par-5 15th and the long but interesting par-3 16th. the town skyline serves as a nice backdrop as well. Don't think there is a better 50-quid course in this part of Scotland. About an hour south of Aberdeen and 40-minutes northeast of Carnoustie, do try and fashion some time to visit if you're in the area of either.
Another great links course in Scotland, top conditions and beautiful views.
First things first- I love this course and will play it as often as I can. It is a true links course with a traditional feel, friendly members, and beautiful scenery. It will test your game.
My gripe with this round was that I booked on a hot deal and was prepared to play off winter tees. However there was no mention of the requirement to play off mats when on the fairway or semi rough, or the fact that winter greens were in play. The reason I paid to play was that I would get to play on summer greens, as is generally the case year round here.
The pro informed us when we signed of these conditions when we signed in at the pro shop. Had we known these measures were in place we wouldn't have played, but come back later in the year.
Although a winter course the course was in excellent condition.
Off summer tees it would be a real test.
A true links course.
An excellent day for links golf, sunny, not too windy and excellent views along the sea.
Course was in excellent condition and the welcome was very friendly.
Amazing course and overall experience
The course is stunning as are the surrounding views. Course was in superb condition with greens fast and true. As true a links test as you will find anywhere.
Fantastic old style links
Played the course in the middle of the practice day for the europro tour event. Really slow..... don't know how these guys can keep their patience!
The course itself is fantastic, not desperately long but in great condition & a great example of old style links.
excellent links course
Course in excellent condition. Greens very nice. Couple of across the beach shots from the mens tees. Fairways often bumpy but generally wide. No cross traffic. Recommended
