Monifieth Golf Links


Administered by a local Trust, Monifieth boasts two 18-hole links golf courses on the iconic Angus coastline. With a reputation as a hard, unforgiving course, the ‘Medal’ course is ranked as one of the best golf courses in the area. Stretching 6,650 yards, the course is laid over undulating, hard terrain that is constantly threatened by the prevailing wind blowing from the Firth of Tay.

Montrose Golf Links


One of the oldest golf course in the world, Montrose Golf Links comprises of two golf courses, known as the ‘Medal’ course and ‘Broomfield’. Whilst the ‘Broomfield’ Course is great for beginners; the Medal course provides a true challenge. Located on the rugged Angus coastline, the ‘Medal’ course is a traditional Scottish links that features a springy turf, tall wavy grass and deep bunkers.

Downfield Golf Club


Located within picturesque parkland within the city of Dundee, Downfield Golf Club is an inland course that you no golfer should miss.

In contrast, ‘The Glens Course’ has a tighter, shorter layout requiring accuracy and thoughtful play.

Forfar Golf Club


Originally designed by the four-time Open Champion Old Tom Morris, Forfar was established in 1871. Although the course was altered by James Braid in 1926, the layout has remained the same since. Despite being more than 10 miles from the coast, Forfar is laid over links-like undulating terrain. It is this combination of links-like surface and parkland surroundings that make Forfar such a unique and interesting course to play.
