Carnoustie Golf Links

We look forward to warmly welcoming you to play our fantastic three courses, the Championship Course, the Burnside Course and the Buddon Links Course. The Championship Course has just played host to The 147th Open, with Francesco Molinari becoming the 2018 Champion Golfer of the Year.

The Championship Course has hosted eight Open Championships, one Ladies British Open and two Seniors Open making it one of the very few to have done so in the UK. It is one of the three courses used for the annual Dunhill Links, the others being Kingsbarns and the Old Course in St Andrews and in 2018 The Open Championship returned to the course. 

The Burnside Course is often overshadowed by its illustrious neighbour but it oozes character and from the back tees is a splendid test of golf.  It was here in 1953 where the great Ben Hogan shot 70 to help him qualify for the Open Championship which he subsequently won.

The Buddon Links Course is the newest of the three courses at Carnoustie originally designed by Peter Alliss and the late Dave Thomas the course was opened in 1979. Since then many changes have taken place including the most recent $1m investment in two new holes bringing the course up to a very testing par 68.
