Carnoustie Golf Links
Carnoustie Golf Links overview
Carnoustie Golf Links offers three courses – the Championship, Burnside and Buddon. Nicknamed ‘Carnasty’ due to its level of difficulty, the Championship Course is a permanent fixture on The Open rota and will be forever etched in golfing folklore due to Jean van de Velde’s collapse in 1999. We recommend playing the Burnside over the Buddon if time permits.
Golf courses at Carnoustie Golf Links
The world-renowned Championship Course at Carnoustie plays 6941 yards and has been host to The Open eight times. It also has one of the three courses used for the annual Dunhill Links pro-am. This brilliant natural seaside links course was also voted best Golf Course in Scotland over £100 by the general public, which only adds more accolades to what is a great golfing experience for all.
Buddon Links Course
The 5921 yards, par-68 Carnoustie Buddon Links is a fantastic test of golf with great natural beauty. It starts and finishes as a links course with several holes in the middle of the round tree-lined. Boasting attractive lakes rich with local wildlife especially on the 11th hole, this course consistently creates a great experience for all golfers.
The Burnside plays 6020 yards and oozes character, from the back tees it is a splendid test of golf. Many of the short holes could grace the top links courses around with the 5th and 14th, in particular, providing dramatic challenges for the player who strives to gain his par-3. The finish is also strong with the 17th proving to be one of the hardest par-4’s that can be found anywhere in golf and many a score has been ruined by the out of bounds fence at the 18th.
