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.

Great Course

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.

Very good

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.

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.
