Carnoustie Golf Course
Dating back to 1842, Carnoustie Golf Club is one of the oldest in the world with mention of play in the Carnoustie area as far back as the 1520’s.The ultimate golfing challenge probably one of the sternest tests of golf in the world.
A relatively flat course its main defences are main defences are the two burns that run across the links through out. This is comparable to its traditional counterparts; Pow Burn at Prestwick, the Swilcan Burn at St. Andrews and the Suez at Royal St. George’s. On the 17th hole you must deal with the Barry Burn three times before reaching the 434 yard Par 4.

Its main defence comes from the wind and as it blows so the links shows its very sharp teeth. Playing over 7,300 yards and with a bunker system that has perfect placement for the less than average shot. What most experts agree about when it comes to Carnoustie is that there is no tougher finish in golf often termed “the sting-in-the-tail” and this has been enhanced by Jean Van de Velde’s exploits during the 1999 Open.

It is a remarkably fair test and one which has been a triumphant Open venue for among others Ben Hogan, Gary Player & Tom Watson.
