Links golf as it should be
One of the best you'll get to play
As soon as you step on the first tee, the historic stories this great course has staged come flooding back. Watson first Open, Garcia v Harrington and of course fateful Jean. The 16th, 17th and 18th are very difficult and 3 pars are like gold dust.
My Caddy Tip - "Study the course guide the entire round. Especially 17 and 18."
Stableford Score - 38 points
Handicap - Scratch or better.
Enjoyed a great round at Carnoustie and would recommend anyone come and play this superb Open venue. We were greeted with a warm welcome by Nicky and Colin in the professional shop and set about taking on the very fair Championship course at Carnoustie. The course obviously has a fearsome reputation as Carnasty but we found it very playable off the tees of the day, whilst I have no doubt it is very much harder off the whites, we're not professionals! Some great holes all around the course with a particular favourite of mine the 14th which is called Spectacles for its large bunkers which protect the green. Walking up 18 you can't help but wonder how Jean Van de Velde did what he did but my less than conventional 4 was a great way to finish a very memorable golf course.
