About

Holes 18
Type Public
Style Links
Par 71
Length 6655 yards
Slope N/A
Rating N/A

For being an old, classic inland links/parkland layout, Monifieth's par-71 Medal Course is lengthy even by modern standards, at 6,655 yards from the championship tees, and 6354 from the middles. And the wind, as pointed out by Mr. Miller, can make it play much, much longer. Even more importantly, the wind accentuates the spin on poor shots, bringing into play some of the most treacherous hazards, OB, and gorse to be found on any Scottish golf course. Holes 1-6, 13, 16, and 18 all feature OB on the right side from tee to green. And Monifieth's remaining holes hold little promise of relief, as the gorse and fescue appear to be thicker and wilder than most Scottish links.

Winter golf

Course was frozen solid so £35 seemed a bit steep.
Still enjoyed the exercise and will come back in the summer. 4 ball in front refused to let me through and made me feel i was pressurizing them . I was plying well but stood waiting at every tee which is annoying when its a cold day.

Still fantastic in November

Got a nice day for it and were not disappointed, loads of rain leading up to our game but the course was still in fantastic shape and the greens were brilliant, started with birdie never lost a ball and the sun shone all the way round what more can an average golfer ask for?

Links course

Monifieth is a busy course . It had 5 holes on winter greens but full greens probably could have been played on . Greens were all right but not as good as Montrose up the coast . Very friendly starter which made us feel very welcome .

Monifieth Golf Course Feb

During the winter they rotate the greens with 6 temp greens, course layout in winter seems to be different as my Garmin got lost round the 12/13 or maybe it was just my watch., Fairways and Greens in good condition and players very friendly no issue getting waved through as a single. Will play again in the summer

Looking forward to playing in the summer

Great welcome and information given by the starter and although the course was reduced in distance and there were some winter greens on, the design and the layout was excellent and well worth the visit.

Not worth the money

In my opinion it was an average course but greens fees were high. Crieff is a much better value.

Good Links course

Had a great day at Monifieth starting off by being welcomed to the course by Brian the starter who took the time to explain about the course layout and amenities.
Although I played it in November the greens were in great condition but tricky to read the course was in good condition would definitely play again.

Brilliant day. We were very lucky to get a brilliant sunny day with a slight breeze. The starter was great - everything ran on time. Course was baked hard and running like a proper links course. Greens were superb and ran very true. The pace of play was slow - just over 4 hours but worked well for us to be paired with two other chaps who had booked the same GolfNow deal. Recommend the golfers grill in the clubhouse also!

For £25 each - this is the best value for money you will see anywhere.
