Brechin Golf Club was established in 1893 amid the splendid scenery of Angus. The 10th to the 17th holes of this remarkable course are mainly the work of James Braid, although holes did exist before his modifications. It is this portion of the layout that offers the most memorable golf looking north to the foothills of the Grampians.
The greens in this older section are famous throughout the area as being some of the best putting surfaces in the east of Scotland. Tricky to read with indiscernible bumps and hollows and especially so during the summer months, they are a treat to behold.
Just off the A90 dual carriageway between Dundee and Aberdeen, Brechin is easily accessible with a stunning setting and testing holes. Perfect for a golfing break to Carnoustie Country.
Brechin, with its lush green fairways and superb putting surfaces, will offer a wide variation of golfing challenges, including dog-legs, long par 3s and driveable par 4s. But there are also lots of birdie chances to be had following accurate tee shots as the course is not overly long. When playing holes 10 to 13, always try to finish below the hole as the greens are usually very quick.
