Host to The Open on eight occasions and most recently in 2018

Carnoustie Golf Links

While celebrated as one of the great venues in championship golf, Carnoustie must also be regarded as one of the most demanding. This is a tough golf course that few have tamed and it is often described as Scotland’s ultimate golfing challenge. Carnoustie is truly a great test for the able golfer and it is neither for the novice nor the faint hearted, although everyone who loves and enjoys the game will marvel at its intricacies. It is simply a ‘must’ for the avid player; as Hogan said, ‘No player’s experience can be complete without playing Carnoustie’. Fashioned by Old Tom Morris in 1857, and extended by James Braid in 1926, Carnoustie has played host to several Open Championships.

Although there is not driving range at Carnoustie, visitors can warm up by making use of their seven golf simulators which are housed in the fantastic “Links House” clubhouse. Links House also features The Rookery restaurant which boasts panoramic views of the golf courses and the sea, serving the very best local produce from the land & sea.
