Carnoustie Golf Links

Golf’s Greatest Test.



Voted the World’s Best Golf Course in 2019, Carnoustie has a reputation as the toughest Open venue, and a course where every shot needs a careful plan. There’s still enormous charm to the course, however, as you cross the burns and skirt the iconic bunkers. Each hole has its quirks and the last three may be golf’s finest finale.
