American Golf Fanatic

Played this course in April, 2011 in perfect weather! The course is deceiving at times, but fair. It feels like you're playing in a pasture at times, then you find yourself playing to a difficult par three or driving your ball into an unseen water hazard. Loved playing the course that has hosted historic British Open events forever!

Once is enough

Certainly a sporty place with a lot of history.
Once the creek gets everyone!
Very friendly staff, no range, restaurant average!
An open course that is part of a golfer's collection when you're in the area, but with the greenfee> £ 200.00 being called, a visit is enough!

Difficult to play place but very interesting

We played the course in May 2018.

Driving range was only indoor (sometimes interesting to play in)

The place is very narrow and you should play exactly if you want to lie on the fairway. Otherwise, you play a lot out of the rough. but the balls are good to find. Otherwise, it is a typical links course with hard fairways and relatively fast and difficult greens.

Currently before the Open, the Key Landing Areas must also be beaten off by mats, which feels a bit strange (they are not "normal" tee mats, as you would expect from the Range).

All in all, it is certainly recommended to play the course.

Open but otherwise???

Place played on 15.05.2018 we 3Personen were not fire and flame!!! The flair is missing in the whole It was already built the grandstands but for us that was not the winner and we would not play here 2 times!! ST Andrews started more from the small launchers!!! Reception and everything was very friendly - place in very good condition but somehow everything is the same you have little memories - no signature hole - for whom the charm is Open space to play ok otherwise there is better!

The Buddon - a flop the Champions Top

We played the cheaper Buddon Course on April 14,2017 in the morning and the Champions Course in the afternoon. The Buddon space consists of several links paths and parking-Course tracks and runs partially next to the Champions Course. It is safe to play nice if the greens fit. Unfortunately the greens were at Buddon in such a bad condition that we had only half the fun but were allowed to pay the full green fee.
The Champions Course is state in top. The bunkers and the greens are very well laid out and partly seen from furchteinflösend T from. the clubhouse and the entree with practice green (no rank) is surprisingly easy and without any charm. No comparison to the plant of St. Andrews

A beast

As with all links courses, the weather and the wind is critical for a great round or for great frustration.
We played at a very strong wind.

The place was like arrows shortly before the Senior Open in great shape and the greens.
Gladly again!

A famous Links - Course

We played the course in mid-June 2016th The welcome is friendly and the staff of the Reception were happy to help us, our start time one day - with better weather prospects - move. The shift has paid off; we were able to play the course in dry weather. The course is in good condition; the large, very large greens are impeccable. A caddy you need not necessarily in this place; the place is clear and the pot bunkers are clearly visible. playing Carnoustie is not favorable; who likes to play famous places, make no mistake, if he Aufteet here.

A truly historic

A round at championship course. The place is rather simple and unspectacular playing. But because of the golf history that has been written here, it is still an experience. As one would expect from such a place, it is very well maintained, the greens tricky and fast. Only the restaurant was disappointing and there is a deduction in the review.

Carnoustie Championship Course: not met expectations

Everything was very neat and friendly.
The place: long and difficult.
But really spectacular, over-populated and completely overpaid (probably due to the level of awareness).
And in the end there's at the aid station at the Club House for selection 3 dry sandwiches and not even a beer...
Conclusion: we were disappointed.

I was sorry to hear of your disappointing day. At Carnoustie we try to meet demand for play as much as we can because (with exception of Old Course, St Andrews) we are the most sought after course in the UK. clearly at peak times it will be busy. Our halfway house has an array of hot and cold food and drink however it is company policy not to sell alcohol. I am glad you enjoyed the course despite it being difficult which is no secret

3 totally different links courses

In Carnoustie a three quite different links courses on offer.
The Buddon Course: A Par 68 should not be underestimated. At the beginning and at the end of a typical links course of the intervening turns into a parkland course. Very wide and very narrow fairways with and without trees, water hazards, sand dunes, etc.

The Burnside Course: for me the most difficult place, by far the engeste space and poisonous rough. Again, a par 68, which can throw off a really on a bad day.

The Championship Course: is optically the absolutely most beautiful place. DC on hole 1 a hidden green. Innumerable bunkers which culminate in the Spectacles. Two great bunker center fairway on the 15th fairway, I think. The small creek then meanders through the last holes and makes the 17 a very interesting hole.
Here it must be said that the championship tees're not open, but you should from and go to these discounts, just to get a glimpse as extremely long and difficult is this place from these teas.

The staff are the same as in St. Andrews very friendly and helpful.

Anyone in the area is here should also have necessarily played this system. Again, there is a ticket which allows you to play all 3 places.
