    The Carnoustie Golf Course Hotel and Resort has a long and proud history one of the oldest courses in the world. Golf in some form has been played at Carnoustie since the 15th century and possibly even before it was played at St Andrews. The first course was officially opened in 1842 and designed by Robert Chambers. The course consisted of ten holes which crossed and recrossed the Barry Burn.

    In 1838 the opening of the railway between Dundee and Arbroath brought an influx of golfers from as far a field as Edinburgh. This led to a complete restructuring of the course, extended in 1867 by Old Tom Morris to the eighteen holes which had then become standard. The Carnoustie of today is considered to be in the Worlds top ten Golf courses.

    Carnoustie has been the scene of many dramatic Opens with golfing legends such as Tommy Armour, Henry Cotton, Ben Hogan and Gary Player winning golf's greatest prize.

    The Carnoustie Championship course, has returned to world-prominence as the host of the Scottish Open in 1995 and 1996 and the venue for the 1999 and 2007 Open Championship.

    A course is relatively flat with its main defenses being the two burns that run across the Links and the wind. Carnoustie plays just over 7,300 yards with a bunker system that has perfect placement for the less than average shot. What most experts agree about when it comes to Carnoustie is that there is no tougher finish in golf.
