Cracking day out in Arbroath

Really friendly meet with pro on arrival took time to make sure everything was good. Explained course currently being cored. The course itself was enjoyable no complaints. Overall really enjoyed another visit to Arbroath golf course.

Good layout and testing undulating greens.

Thoroughly enjoyed the course would have given 5 stars but greens although true were a little slow. Would definitely recommend and play it again

Fairway mats

I did not know until I arrived that mats were to be used from tees and fairways I would not expect this so late in march but I do understand the reasons for doing this . It did not spoil what was a enjoyable round of golf.

Excellent condition for the time of year

Very breezy day but we couldn’t fault the general condition of the course. Greens were excellent and although the course is still on the winter tees it was still excellent value for the money.
Pro shop were very helpful and informative as well.
Will definitely try to be back in the summer

Decent value

I paid £28 which I think is about right. The course is probably best played in the warmer months as the turf isn’t as good as nearby courses. The price is around £60 in summer but I think I’d be disappointed if I’d paid that to be honest. Monifieth is sometimes on a hot deal and that’s a way better course.

The par 3s are good at Arbroath so they were the highlight. Too many uninteresting par 4s for me though.

A friendly welcome in the pro shop to mention too.

Great greens

Played in torrential rain and high winds but still enjoyable, greens ran well, fairways a bit patchy but probably suffering after the dry summer, would play again.

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.
