Horrible staff

I came to this establishment, even called 20 minutes before hand to confirm if the driving range was open. Only to be confronted by an bafoon telling me that I was not able to use the driving range because apparently it is a ‘hard game’ and that he fears I might smash a window out of a main building. To I replied yes it is a ‘hard game’ to play thus the reason I came to the driving range to practice. And also why they would place a building at the driving range. To then tell me he wasn’t comfortable to let me on the driving range for reason he would not explain. I’m appalled at this behaviour and it is absolutely disgusting and complete snobbery. Staff a needs hard speaking too and a revamp. Of attitude. How they can expect to treat me like this after driving 20 miles to use the driving range. What kind of business are they running here especially at these trying times. Would not recommend if I was Gordon Ramsey and this was kitchen nightmares I would shut the place down and he would be the first one I’d sack.
Thanks but no thanks. Keep your driving range.
Yours sincerely. The 2 gypsies who has played golf for 2 years who you didn’t like the look of. 2021 grow up

Beautiful links

Amazing course condition with friendly staff and members. Traditional links set-up is far more challenging than you imagine. Avoid the rough at all costs!! All in, an enjoyable and challenging course to play.

Poor

Firstly the amenities where not available on arrival so it was Mcds for breakfast.
Secondly, machine brews only, which to be fair where nice.
Thirdly, we book as a group going mid week when traditionally its rather quiet and clubs are usually glad of the business and normally we get a good deal this was however the worst deal to date we have had as a group and we have played all over Scotland including St Andrews links courses. Fourthly, the lay out of the coarse is rather confusing at points and the pins where different colours so this also added to the confusion. Lastly, the coarse is not in the best of condition especially for this time of the year. On a positive note the staff are very nice and the setting was stunning.

Very enjoyable course

Played here end of October, course in good condition , greens were a little slow but understandable as were into winter, good layout, some tough holes into the wind and a few very deep bunkers that need to be avoided, pro was very friendly, clubhouse wasn’t open for business so can’t comment on that, for us handy for railway station, All in all good day,

First time in Scotland.

I played this course on a recent trip to Scotland. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. They allowed me to play with my BIGGA membership which gave me courtesy of the course.
I found the course a fine challenge and in fabulous condition. The gale force winds made for some interesting golf. Front nine was a breeze but homeward bound was great fun.
A beer and a chat with some locals after was a fitting end to the round.
Please have a look at the course website and membership prices.....wow.

Links with some twists

The course is flat occupying a long but narrow strip so it's mainly 9 holes out, literally, followed by 9 back with only minor exceptions. That having been said it is a course that favours accuracy more than big hitters with bunkers and some small twistsin the fairway. The fairways are not cut that short which often prevents much roll and the rough typical of a links course. Whilst very close to the sea the raised railway line prevents views of it.

Overall I think an interesting course to play occasionally speciall to practice your medium distance accuracy. As with most courses in this area the summer full rate is expensive but bargains can be found if you can be flexible with your timings.

Golf as it was meant to be...

I absolutely loved this place. We walked up at 5:30PM and asked if we could play. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and sent us right out at 6PM, we played in 3 hours, 20 minutes. Then we went into the restaurant and had a great dunner.

So much fun. Feel like this is a golf course that you could play every day and have fun each time. Can't say that about every golf course, but gladly think that about this place. You can change tees if you want, play different shots all over the place...just a lot of fun at a place that I stumbled upon at the last moment. Be careful of the burn that comes into play on several holes. It'll jump up and bite you.

A different links near Carnoustie with great value

I was pleasantly surprised by Arbroath, the links closest to the west side of Carnoustie. It isn't more than 5-10 minutes door-to-door, but presents a totally different piece of land and links design.

For starters, it's more scenic, with nice sea views. It has an out-and-back routing on a pretty narrow strip of land which lends itself to some wider fairways, and there is also one double-green. The green complexes and bunkering are really solid here. The burns that run perpendicular to many holes were a little difficult to manage considering we were playing the course for the first time and we're playing historically dry links this week so the ball is running forever.

It's a great value at £40-45 and definitely worth playing if you're in Carnoustie for a few days, particularly to get some confidence back after getting beat up there.

Lovely links challenge

Lovely challenge on the Scottish coast. Plenty of challenging holes mixed with good chances to score if the ball is kept in play.
Course was in fine condition for a November lunchtime; with a brisk breeze up and down the course keeping players honest.
Excellent pace of play.
Staff in the shop were incredibly friendly and helpful.
Great day and will be sure to be back.
