Play the Championship Course at Carnoustie with our golf tours

Carnoustie is one of the most iconic names in Scottish golf. Situated on the other side of the bay from St. Andrews, golf has been played here since the 1500s, and its first 18-hole links course was opened in 1867.

Since then, it has become one of main courses on rotation to host The Open Championship. It first hosted The Open all the way back in 1931, and will host it again in 2018 for the 147th edition of the tournament.

The Championship Course is Carnoustie’s jewel in the crown. Host to seven Open Championships, with another to follow in 2018, these extensive coastal links are widely regarded as one of the toughest courses in the UK. Its brutal final four holes have been the scene of some of The Open’s most memorable dramas.

Carnoustie also boasts two other 18-hole courses: the Burnside, which features one of the most difficult par-fours anywhere on the planet; and the Buddon Links, which has recently undergone a $1 million redesign.
