Golf Course/
Carnoustie Championship

The Championship Course at Carnoustie has always been considered to be a special place to play the game of golf.

The legendary Walter Hagen intimated during the 1930s that he regarded it as the “greatest course in the British Isles” and since then a succession of other leading golfers have also queued up to sing its praises.

Carnoustie may not possess the natural beauty of a Turnberry or Royal Co. Down, but what it lacks in that department is more than made up for by the challenge it presents.

“Carnoustie is the toughest course anywhere,” argued Gary Player after winning the Open Championship there in 1968 and former five-time Amateur champion, Michael Bonallack, agreed. “When the wind blows it is the hardest course in Britain,” intoned the man who went on to become a much-respected Secretary of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club. “Actually, even when it doesn’t blow, it is probably the toughest. At no time can you ever afford to relax.”

Since it has been dubbed by many professionals as the "toughest links course in the world," Carnoustie Championship Course presents a thrilling challenge that will leave even the most experienced golfers amazed and excited to have another round.
