Experience the Course

Note for visitors to Carnoustie Golf Links – As a result of a large-scale windfarm project taking place, Carnoustie Buddon golf course will be closed from mid-October 2020 for a period of 15 months.

Carnoustie Buddon Links is a beautiful links course that combines traditional links features with elements of heathland, such as heather and silver birch trees that are more commonly found on equally as beautiful Highland courses.The newest of the three courses at Carnoustie, the Buddon Links was originally designed by Peter Alliss and the late Dave Thomas. It was opened in 1979 but has seen many changes since then, including a $1 million investment to create two new holes, bringing the course up to a very testing par 68. The greatly improved design and condition of the course has prompted locals to refer to holes 11 and 12 as the new ‘Amen Corner’ – where golfers are tested to the max!

“All the holes on the course are named after famous battles and by the time I came to the 18th, “Rhine,” I felt I’d been in one myself. The Buddon presents a formidable test of accuracy and strategy.”
