Golf Course/
Carnoustie Burnside

The Burnside established in 1914, has its own intricacies and character not unlike its senior.

Even though the Championship Course somewhat overshadows it, visitors will find much to commend about this fine links and it is often overshadowed by it’s illustrious neighbour but it oozes character and from the back tees is a splendid test of golf. 

Many of the short holes would grace any links course anywhere with the 5th and 14th in particular providing dramatic challenges for the player who strives to gain his par 3. 

The finish is also strong with the 17th proving to be one of the hardest par 4’s that can be found anywhere in golf and many a score has been ruined by the out of bounds fence at the 18th. Heather, whins and a burn come into play throughout this enjoyable golf course, testing your golfing skills at every turn. 

Burnside golf course, if sited elsewhere, would have much greater acknowledgment, but, as it is, it remains a real gem.  It is an excellent links course in its own right, and will prove a rewarding adversary for any serious golfer.
