Caird Park

Caird Park is a relaxed and welcoming course that is well worth a visit. Established in 1923, it is one of Dundee’s three municipal golf courses and with trees and rough grass to tighten things up, the course presents a variety of challenges over an easy-walking terrain.

The first is an easy opener and sets the tone for the first six holes, as long as the trees are avoided. Make the most of it as a testing stretch follows from the 7th through to the 13th. The 11th, for instance, emerges from the trees and crosses the Ghelly Burn; a good par five that requires an attacking position for the green. The 12th is a long par three at 238 yards crossing back over the burn and probably the hardest hole on the course.

One of the lesser-known golf courses in Carnoustie Country, Caird Park offers a great day out.

Pro Tips

Caird Park Golf Course is not particularly long, but use the first six holes wisely to build a score because holes seven through to 13 are longer and more difficult. If you do slip up, you have the chance for some birdies from holes 14 to 18.
