Scotland Golf Courses
Carnoustie, Angus, DD7 7JF
One of Scotland’s most infamous courses is Carnoustie Championship Links in Angus. It’s a regular host to the British Open and has seen winners including Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Tom Watson and most recently Padraig Harrington in 2007. But its recent lore belongs to who didn’t win it, Frenchman Jean Van de Velde, after his infamous triple bogey collapse on the 72nd hole in 1999. Play the diabolical 18th yourself however, and it’s easy to sympathize with the Frenchman. For golfers staying in nearby St. Andrews, Carnoustie is less than an hour’s drive away, making it easily includable in any Fife golf tour.
