Kirriemuir Golf Club
Kirriemuir Golf Club, designed by James Braid, lies in the heart of Scotland's golfing country, 18 miles from Carnoustie and 35 miles from St. Andrews. No fewer than eight Open final qualifying golf courses are within a 45-minute drive.
Avenues of woods, gorse and broom surround lush, undulating fairways with greens that are impeccable and true. The views are inspiring, particularly from the fourth hole, with Lochnagar in the distance.
Like many of the great golf courses, Kirriemuir's best is reserved for the finish. The 17th, named Braid's Gem, is a 180-yard par-3 hole, with the green guarded by two majestic trees both left and right. No. 18 is a difficult par 4, uphill with a large oak tree blocking the right half of the fairway.
The par-68 heathland/parkland layout measures 5,518 yards from the back tees.

Kirriemuir Golf Club
First time playing this course. Not long but really good and interesting course and I great condition . Would definately play again
Very Slow Play
Course as always was in great condition, staff helpful and weather perfect. Game was ruined by extremely slow play by aged ladies and gentlemen who were taking half an hour to play two holes. Lots of similar paced groups so no one playing through and no effort made to do so. Slowest play I have ever seen.
First time playing Kirrie and it was in absolutely immaculate condition, greens in particular were tremendous. I enjoyed course a lot.
Very nice course
No complaints whatsoever well laid out course fairly open especially 1st nine holes with very little serious rough very enjoyable round of golf no hold ups 2 1/2 hours to zip around will definitely go back
Windy day but dry, course in good condition, some tricky greens, lots of trees, enjoyable round of golf.
Quality woodland course at qualty price.
Caught 'Kirrie' on one of those late afternoon/early evening autumnal weather conditions golfers dream of. And with the course itself having been set up for a club medal that had just been completed as we arrived, the course was also immaculate with super fast greens and excellently manicured fairways. For those not good at orienteering or can"t read a scorecard like me, my one and only gripe and to avoid slow play, there were no directional signs for the one or two tees where these might be required. Although to be fair, the starter did explain these to us before heading off. Last but by no means least, the staff and catering were wonderful and extremely welcoming with Covid restrictions well observed. Will certainly be back.
Good scenery, lots of trees and tightish
Course was in great condition, greens very testing.
Nice scenic course with an excellent variety of holes.
Excellent greens and fairways good pace of play.
Back nine more challenging with the last few holes being excellent ending holes.
Excellent friendly staff and members .
Would recommend to friends and family.
A gem in the Glens
You can find some very good and affordable courses away from the high profile candidates in this part of the world. Kirriemuir fits the bill perfectly. May not be the longest but with a thoughtful layout gave me some pleasure on an afternoon while visiting the area.
Would recommend to all lovers of the game to try and you will be pleased you stopped by.
Tricky short course
First time playing this course. Some tough blind tee shots so it's good to look at the website and read the hole by hole explanation. Back 9 is definetely trickier than the front. Overall definitely play this again now I know how to plot my way around. If your a big hitter I'd leave your driver at home as 3 woods and irons are easily enough off the tee. Greens have a lot of movement so good for putting practice!
A hidden gem
This is a wonderful course to play. It is fairly short but with the undulating fairways and tricky greens it is by no means a pushover. You really have to play here a couple of times to know where to position yourself to avoid a disaster!!! It was in fantastic condition when we played, greens were fast, fairways were lush but some areas had tight lies, which made for very careful chipping. The staff were fabulous. From the secretary, pro shop attendants, restaurant staff and the “members” we met you will not find a friendlier golf club anywhere. All in all we had a great day and would recommend anyone to play there.
The course was in a great condition all 4 enjoyed the round and would definitely play the course again. Clubhouse very welcoming and all staff were very helpful.
