Being from Arizona USA with very limited links golf under my belt, I was a bit concerned about tackling the beast of Open venues with the forecast calling for 25mph winds and a 100% chance of showers. No worries, though, as the golf gods kept...More

We played all three courses on Carnoustie. And the Championship we the highlight, it was narrow with the burn sneaking around every corner. Absolutely terrifying! The two other was also great courses. Burnside and Buddon are also recommended.More

Remains one of greatest courses. More playable than reputation but much depends on wind. History of Hogan and Watson make this a special experience.

Carnoustie is a wonderful true links course. The first 12 holes play relatively easy as long as the wind isn't too terribly strong off the sea. However, 13 - 18 are brutally difficult hitting into the wind. My American-style game is not adept at keeping...More

I booked through a company called Golf Scotland. They arranged all our tee times, even the Old Course. Stayed at the Fairmont in St Andrews. First class all the way .
