Carnoustie Golf Break

Carnoustie Golf Breaks. The golf at Carnoustie needs no introduction. Championship Course - Host to the Open six times, the Championship Course has been voted the top course in Scotland by many of the golfing greats and has been described as Scotland's ultimate golfing Challenge. The 1999 Open captured the public's imagination as some of the game's greatest players floundered, and will always be remembered for Jean van de Velde's disastrous last hole where he let slip a three stoke lead to lose to Paul Lawrie in the play-off. 18 holes. Par 72. 6,941 yds. Links.

 

Burnside Course - The Burnside Course is ideal for golfers looking for slightly less of a challenge, shorter than its big brother and a great introduction to the exciting world of links golf. 18 holes. Par 68. 6,020 yds. Links.

Buddon Course - The Buddon Links Course has been extensively remodelled to make it more enjoyable for the average golfer, although some of the holes would not be out of place on the Championship Course. 18 holes. Par 66. 5,400 yds. Links.

Golf Links ScotlandScottish Golf Links: A Photographer's Journey Along the rugged eastern coast, from St. Andrews up to Montrose and Cruden Bay and Royal Aberdeen, "from heather, whin and sand, to points north," to Nairn and Dornoch. Then to the west coast, to Prestwick and Troon. It's not only the courses themselves that Lowe illuminates along the way, but the winding roads, the ancient villages, the farms and whiskey distilleries, and the people who call this land their home as well.

Secret History of Golf in Scotland, The This story about golf takes place in 16th Century Scotland and is inspired by the earliest historical records about "the greatest game". In it Ian MacPherson, a dirt poor farmer and so-so golfer, decides he must win his town's annual golfing tournament or face financial ruin. Galbraith, the Scottish Laird who rules the area, has financial problems of his own and also has designs on the tournament. He hires a golfing "ringer" from Edinburgh, Black Bart, to try and steal the tournament from the locals. Along with fascinating descriptions about early golf, there is plenty of earthy humor, cruel deception and local Scottish color.
