Just up the coast from St Andrews, Angus and Dundee continues the impressive run of golf courses along the eastern side of the country. There are 30 courses all within 40 minutes drive of each other, with of course, Carnoustie, at its heart.

Carnoustie’s Championship course is widely considered one of the most difficult courses in the world. It has been the downfall of many championship golfers, earning it the nickname name ‘Carnasty’. This course is less about the views and more about the test of your game. So, if challenging your golf abilities and conquering the worst that nature can throw at you is more your thing, this is the course for you. There are two other less testing courses available as well, Burnside and Buddon Links. Carnoustie is open to visitors all year but a handicap limit of 28 for men and 36 for women applies in some cases.
As if often the case, interesting courses near the Goliaths of Scottish golf often get overlooked. Montrose is one such case. Older than its more famous neighbour, Montrose is the 5th oldest golf course in the world. This course is more than a gap filler between other courses and is best visited in May when the ample gorse is in full flower. Open to visitors all year round at very reasonable prices.
