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.

Booked a round here for my son and I as part of a wee break. Wasn’t informed it was all winter greens, some of which were no more than 70-80 yards long. Very disappointed.
Booked a round for my son and I as part of a 3 day golf holiday.
Played Auchterarder on Monday and Strathmore Tuesday both of which were excellent.
Turned up at Kirriemuir ready for our round and booked in.
Teed off at the first hole and when we got to the green realised it was a winter green around 50y shorter than the permanent one.
2nd tee was a yellow box to the next temp green which was around 75y away. Didn’t get any better and ruined our last days trip. Very disappointed about lack of information on the website or indeed at the club.
My son and I played Kirriemuir for the first time after reading how good the greens were in reviews. How right they were as no putts bobbled or bounced and despite rain overnight they were pretty fast. This is a short course but pin placement left great challenges and we thoroughly enjoyed our round. We'll be back next time in the area.
Lovely day golfing at Kirriemuir, played as two ball not appreciating Thursday medal day, if we did we would have avoided, but having said that members very, very friendly, highly recommend
Cannot fault the course at all, it was a bit slow as there was a Texas scramble on,
Well done to the green keeps and staff for making it a great day out for us.
Easy walk, lovely surroundings, and very welcoming. Highly recommend Kirriemuir golf club and will be back soon.
Course in good nick despite the recent severe weather. A mixture of full and winter greens didn’t detract from an enjoyable round. Always made to feel welcome at Kirriemuir.
Wasn’t told before booking that it was winter greens, so was disappointed when turned up and it was winters
