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.

What a trip! Truly a once in a lifetime experience to visit Scotland, play the most famous courses with the most professional caddies in the world. Kevin took care of everything ahead of time, advised us on the best places to play, stay, eat and drink. He took care of all the logistics and bookings, along with helping us navigate the St. Andrews Old Course Ballot (we got in as a foursome!!!). I highly recommend booking your next Scotland golf trip with Kevin Fogarty, you won't regret it!

Our group of 6 had a trip of a lifetime to St. Andrew's thanks to Kevin Fogarty and Scottish Golf Experience. Working to plan this trip with Kevin more than 7 months in advance was a very smooth process. He handled all the logistics and tee times for our desired schedule - and really stepped in to assist with some last minute adjustments mid-trip. We enjoyed our accommodations and recommendations for the area. We played 6 rounds of golf over 4 days and Kevin's knowledge of St. Andrew's was invaluable in helping us navigate the Ballot and Singles lists to ultimately get our group out on The Old Course. We couldn't have had a better time and must assign much of that to the guidance from Kevin at Scottish Golf Experience. He's even a pretty decent caddie!! 😉

We had an amazing trip. Trip of a life time without question! Kevin was incredible. Took care of everything! Stayed within walking distance to The Old Course. Tee times, pro caddies (my caddie was carried in open championship this year at Carnoustie!) and some of the most iconic golf courses in the world. Absolutely world class!!! Thanks again
