Wow, what a great day of golf. Got to play here last year on holiday to Scotland. Very tough course what an incredible day. Can't wait to get back. The day I played it was 70 and no wind. Couldn't ask for better. Wound not try it without a caddie.

Then we were allocated the wrong room. They did sort this out but were not very polite and offered no apologies. I asked if I could speak to the... More

Early booking required for group golfing activities caddies available. World class championship course, with 2 other excellent courses running on both sides of the championship Course. Good hotel attached, but can be a bit pricey for food and drinks.2 other private golf clubs across the road available to visitors for food and drink, ample parking facilities

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your experience at Carnoustie. Winter is always a challenging time for golf because your enjoyment of the day is so weather dependent. On this day in question, there had been some early morning frost and had to use some temporary greens. As was explained when booking, matts are in play all winter... More

The Championship Course does not come cheap, but bear in mind that you are at the home of golf and playing a course which is world class and better than the Old Course, but without any snootiness - which alas no longer applies to the St. Andrews venue. The off-course facilities are being updated (and not before time) but visitors... More

Once we got there we walked round the town which was very close by but not much to do. We came back and went... More

Was lucky enough to play with a member a Friday evening last August. The good news was it wasn't windy - the bad news is it was very wet. Be prepared for bad weather not matter what time of the year. That said I still really enjoyed it. The course is very challenging as you would expect. Accuracy is key... More

We have just returned from another great trip to this magnificent links course. This time we had the privilege of playing with Carnoustie Pro Colin Sinclair. It was also the first time that my son Sam aged 14 got to enjoy playing the Championship course. The links was in incredible condition on the 28th December. All greens were open and... More
