Though play was slow today, an enjoyable course. I forgot my GPS distance tracker so really struggled to get an idea of the distance as the 150 yard markers were difficult to find?
First time playing here and it was fantastic. Turned up early and Pro was very friendly and let us tee off early. Hardly anyone else on the course so played in 3 hours without rushing. Views from the holes were lovely and the course layout great. Fairways were in good condition as were the greens. Would definitely play again. Good test for both of us as a single figure and high teen handicapper.
Service in clubhouse after unfortunately not a great experience. Only ordered sandwiches and chips and waited ages and then what was served was not good.
Next time will just play the course and not go in for food afterwards which is a shame as when you get such a deal on the golf it's nice to go and spend some money in the clubhouse.
Good condition but slow play and food was really poor.It could have been a bad day in the kitchen but it was a letdown.Course was 7/10 though and some cracking holes.
Alternative to the links
If you are in Carnoustie Country and its too windy on the coast you must try Forfar, fantastic gem of a course well laid out. Every hole is different and offers a great challenge for all levels.
Excellent greens, manicured fairways and tidy bunkering make it a really great experience
Clubhouse catering is of a good standard and very reasonable with plenty of choice. Good view out over the tricky 18th green to enjoy as you relax after your round
Great course don't miss it.
Nice course, very enjoyable
A very enjoyable experience and a course in great condition.
So good, I'd join
It's not often I've played a golf course and just simply fallen in love with it. The use of the land is simply breathtaking. Where others would have flattened the fairways, Forfar uses the land to its advantage. By doing so, each tee shot requires something a bit different. Distance will only help you so much here, accuracy is key!
Large undulating greens make for challenging approach play, but they were in such good condition, that you could attack the hole with confidence.
Staff and facilities were both excellent, the only thing bigger than the greens was the burger I had in the clubhouse. Fantastic!
I can't wait to play it again.
Having passed the course and admired the natural beauty of the setting many times, I was really looking forward to my round. And it surpassed my expectations! This is not a hilly course but the undulating landscape adds significant interest to every hole and with the trees, heather and grasses of the rough and fairways make each hole a beautiful sight. The course architect has made a fantastic job of creating a golf course using the landscape available. The fairways are beautifully shaped and bunkers well-placed (as I found out to my cost!). The definition on most holes is superb. The greens are surprisingly large and offer a great challenge in the correct approach and once on the putting surface. But they are also very true and consistent.
There was a gents medal on the day we played and at some courses playing in front of members can be frowned upon. The Forfar members we met could not have been friendlier and offered us a few tips on lines etc.
Service and food in the clubhouse were superb. All staff friendly and attentive.
An excellent golf course and a great day out!
