Championship Course, Carnoustie Golf Links
St Andrews, Scotland
Championship Course overview
The par-4 18th hole is one of the best finishing holes in golf. Known around the world for the chaos it caused in the final round of the 1999 Open Championship where Jean Van de Velde blew a 3-shot lead to go into a playoff that he lost to Scotland’s Paul Lawrie. The main feature of the hole is the infamous Barry Burn which snakes its way across and adjacent to the fairway, intimidating even the world’s best golfers. A par here is a superb effort.
