One of the most famous names in world golf and the venue for several Open Championships, Carnoustie Golf Links is surely too iconic and too celebrated for any trip organiser to ignore. There are three excellent courses to be found here, but the Championship Course is usually the one on everyone’s wish-list. Here is where you can play where the greats played, where you can experience their many triumphs and their occasional disasters along the way.
Located in the county of Angus and just across the bay from St Andrews, Carnoustie is a venue that rewards accuracy from the tee shot. It offers a test for all players, which of course it should. After all, it’s regularly named as one of the 30 best courses to be found anywhere in the world. If you like being a bit nervous as you tee the ball up, you’re going to love the par-5 6th, otherwise known as Hogan’s Alley. It’s long, often plays into the wind and if the fairway bunkers don’t get you the out of bounds down the left just might!
If you’re considering a golf trip to Scotland’s east coast and you want to include Carnoustie on the itinerary, you’ll be pleased to know it’s in the ideal location for the experience. It’s just a short drive to the vibrant and exciting city of Dundee, and it’s within easy reach of a number of other highly popular courses, including of course several at St Andrews.

We’re on our way to Edinburgh. Thanks for the kind note, I absolutely loved every minute of it, even when I was in the rough and losing balls! The program you put together was everything we could have expected and your customer service was perfect; thank you for going above and beyond…
Stuart and Platinum Golf Scotland provided a terrific itinerary for a spectacular golf and whisky (and, of course, food) experience in Scotland! The checking in, touching base, and above the call of duty service provided during our trip was great! No doubt that they would be a go to for any future travel to the UK. Thanks a bunch for making it an experience of a lifetime!
We have had a fabulous time here this week so many thanks to you and Stuart for doing a fabulous job organising it all.
