Overview
More
The Championship Course has hosted seven 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 will return 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.

We are not golf followers, but the word “Carnoustie” transcends that limitation and it was exciting for us to see the Links, albeit from a distance. The marking simply reflects that excitement, a little like, for example, the first sighting of the Wembley Arch from...More

Just did the 2018 Open at the Carnoustie Links course. What a fabulous place, walked the course a couple of times , the amenities were brilliant. The whole weekend was well set up, would definitely reccomend the next open in Ireland.
