The ideal location for playing Carnoustie
There are few golf courses as feared and revered in the world of professional golf in the way that Carnoustie is. Hosting multiple Open Championships, this is a course of the highest pedigree and one of the world’s ultimate golfing experiences.
With major investment in recent years, there’s more to Carnoustie than ever before, this European Tour and major championship venue is just a short drive from Dundee and about an hour and a half from Edinburgh airport. The Carnoustie Hotel is ideally situated adjacent to the first tee on the Championship Course, and directly behind the 18th green, affording magnificent views across the links towards the Angus coastline.

One of the most charming things about Carnoustie is that it is owned by the local council and some local golf clubs. However, in the build-up to the 1999 Open Championship a new hotel was built beside the 1st tee and 18th green. This 4-star hotel is a great place to situate yourself for this most incredible golf pilgrimage and has become an integral part of the image of the course..
Many of the rooms at the four-star hotel look out onto the course and watching the sun go down over the celebrated land is a truly magical experience. The hotel has a nice restaurant that also overlooks the course and does a wonderful breakfast. In fact, you can finish-up your bacon roll and be on the first tee in less than fifty steps!
First class leisure facilities, including a large swimming pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and gym for those looking to keep their fitness up whilst visiting, or those looking to relax after golf. If you wish to take your stress levels down another notch then you should book yourself into the spa for a treatment, you might need it after a tough round on the Championship course!
Eat in the formal Calder's Bistro for a fusion of Mediterranean and Scottish cuisine and relax with a drink in Calder's Bar with a terrace overlooking the 1st and 18th holes of the Championship course at Carnoustie.
The ideal location for playing Carnoustie
We really enjoyed staying at the Carnoustie hotel, so close to this historic course, waking up almost on the first tee with a view over where all the greats have started in the Open championship.
Perfect, would have been nice to buy a few mementos but everything very expensive. Paid £30 for a hat and disappointing to see it in shop across the road for half the price.
A good standard "international " style hotel. Lacked character which you would think would be there considering its spot on the landscape.
Great Hotel and friendly staff. Perfect for a golfing holiday
Good location clean, smart & comfortable next to the 1st tee
The hotel and staff were excellent, our room was very comfortable and the staff were very accommodating
A huge disappointment Waiting almost 20 minutes for drinks in the bar of hotel Young staff struggling to smile Didn’t feel welcome at all And won’t be going back
Nice hotel with helpful staff, would recommend.
We ate in the hotel and the food was excellent and the price was comparable to any restaurant
Superb location for the golf
I used yourgolftravel.com for our annual golf trip, selecting a bed and breakfast package at the Golf Hotel Carnoustie with 2 rounds, one each on the Burnside and the Buddon golf courses.
The courses are both part of the Carnoustie golf links, with the famous Championship course making up the trio of courses. Despite being the lesser known courses to the Championship, all three are on the same links and run alongside each other. Both of the courses are beautifully prepared, both were challenging and rewarding and the conditioning is in line with the Championship Course.
The hotel is in a superb setting for golf fans too. The rooms had 2 double beds, were spacious and clean. The food was good too but we also took advantage of the local restaurants in the village which provided plenty of choice of good quality food at very good prices.
This was our 13th trip away and only the 1st time we used yourgolftravel. I’d score the whole experience 10/10 and this was the best trip we have been on.
Don’t be put off visiting Carnoustie and not playing the Championship course as the Buddon and Burnside are top courses at a fraction of the price.
