GOLF COURSE SELECTION

 

Carnoustie

Carnoustie Golf Links is thought to be the most difficult of the golf courses in Scotland. It is also rated the most demanding of all the current Open Championship venues and has hosted the event on 7 occasions. Several greats such as Ben Hogan, Henry Cotton Gary Player, and Tom Watson all lifted the Claret Jug here. It began as a 10-hole course built in 1842 and Old Tom Morris extended the course to 18 holes in 1857. James Braid extended and altered the course in 1926 and it has remained much the same since that date. The 6th hole is named Hogans Alley after Ben Hogan and is most likely the toughest Par 5 in the world of golf. a very demanding course, the final three holes are as great a test as you will find anywhere.

Gleneagles King’s Course

The King’s Course at Gleneagles is one of the finest heathland golf courses in Scotland and one of three at the stunning Gleneagles, the others being the Queen’s Course and the PGA Centenary Course, the latter hosting the 2014 Ryder Cup Matches. A Par 71 course measuring 6,452 yards, it was designed by the legendary James Braid and winds it way serenely through the Estate of the Gleneagles Hotel amidst the magnificent Perthshire hills. This James Braid masterpiece has tested the shot-making of the best golfers in the world.

Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course

One of 3 magnificent heathland courses at Gleneagles Resort, the PGA Centenary Course hosted the 2014 Ryder Cup matches. Originally designed by legend Jack Nicklaus it is a Par 72 measuring 7,296 yards and consists of six par 3’s, six par 4’s and 6 par 5’s and it winds its way through the heathlands of the Gleneagles Hotel amidst the beautiful Perthshire Hills. The newest, by far, of the three courses at Gleneagles and more Americanised than the King’s and Queen’s courses.

Gleneagles Queens Course

The Gleneagles Queens Course measures 5,965 yards and is a Par 68. One of the most scenic heathland golf courses in Scotland, it is one of three championship courses at the majestic Gleneagles Resort. With a long history, the Queen’s Course has hosted some of the world’s golfing greats including Tom Watson, Lee Trevino, Greg Norman, Johnny Miller, and the late Severiano Ballesteros. Trevino once said on a visit to the Queen’s Course – “If heaven is as good as this, I sure hope they have some tee times left.”

Monifieth Medal Course

Although officially founded in 1858, there are references in Kirk session records to golf having been played as early as 1639. With 36 holes of golf, Monifieth is ideal for a full day of golf with a round over the championship Medal Course in the morning then after lunch playing the shorter but most enjoyable Ashludie Course. The Medal Course is a stern test and has been used for Open Championship Qualifying. There is a choice of 4 Clubhouses for visitors to choose from for meals and drinks. 

Panmure

Panmure Golf Club, located in Barry, near Carnoustie, Scotland, is a historic and esteemed golf club with a rich heritage.

Panmure Golf Club, with its historical significance, traditional links-style course, and scenic setting, remains a cherished destination for golfers seeking an authentic Scottish golfing experience. Its enduring legacy and connection to the country’s golfing heritage contribute to its appeal among golf enthusiasts.
