Play championship course ‘Car-nasty’
Host to countless Championship Opens, Carnoustie Golf Links is, most notably, the iconic location of Ben Hogan’s famous 1953 triumph and part of our 2019 fully escorted golf tour. Russell Knox, 2018’s top-ranked Scot at No. 46 in the world, admits, “They call it ‘Car-nasty’ for a reason. Probably the toughest course I’ve ever played”.
It’s widely known that golfers don’t travel to Scotland to play on parkland, heathland or seaside golf courses. No, they make the pilgrimage to play on genuine Scottish links golf courses, famed for inspiring the world’s most enigmatic golfers to summon their best play and master the vagaries of hitting a tiny hard ball over windswept plains into a 4 ¼ inch hole. Richard Jafolla of Golf Nook, Scotland, says, “There’s a palette of exceptional golf courses, terrific golf courses and great golf courses all jammed into an area the size of Tasmania”.
