The Carnoustie Burnside Links

The Carnoustie Burnside Links is a fantastic course that has previously been used for Open Qualifying; it’s actually where Ben Hogan qualified before he claimed the Claret Jug on the Championship course in 1953.

THE CARNOUSTIE BURNSIDE COURSE INFORMATION

A fantastic course which potentially lulls you into a false sense of security with its 6000 yard length. However, the tight fairways, brilliant bunkering and nasty rough demands respect and puts a major importance on accuracy. The best feature on this course is the variety of par 3’s and the use of the natural landscape. The 5th hole is only 158 yards but it encompasses tough bunkering and the infamous Barry burn. A par is a great score here despite the fact you’re hitting a short iron into the green.

The resemblance to the Championship course is clear to see on the homeward stretch where the difficulty level increases as does the potential to wreck the scorecard. The Burnside’s famous 17th hole is a monster 473 yard par 4 which rivals the 18th on the Championship course.

It may not get the reputation of the Championship course but the Burnside is one course you simply must play!
