Experience the Carnoustie Championship Course

Often ranked as one the best golf courses in the world, The Championship course at Carnoustie is the ultimate test of links golf and features the toughest closing stretch of golf holes anywhere. It has hosted The Open on eight occasions, most recently The 147th Open in July 2018. It has also hosted the Ricoh British Women’s Open, two Senior Open Championships, as well as being part of the trio of courses used for the annual Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.The sandy subsoil that covers the gently rolling terrain, makes it an ideal setting for golf and a perfect canvas on which James Braid created a collection of distinctively crafted holes. Remarkably, some of his designs were regarded as too weak for competitive play and the notorious ‘sting in the tail’ – Carnoustie”s final three holes – was introduced. Now regarded as the toughest links course in the world, Carnoustie is a mouth-watering challenge even on a mild day.One of the world’s greatest links courses, the Carnoustie Championship course is a must-play during any visit to Carnoustie Country!
