Tayside Golf Tour - An Idea for a Golf Tour in Tayside


 

Tayside Golf Tour

Our idea for a Tayside Golf Tour includes the links courses at Carnoustie, Monifieth and Montrose. We have also included the exceptional  3 Heathland championship courses at Geneagles, the King's course, the Queen's course and the PGA Centenary course which hosted the 2014 Ryder Cup matches.

The choice of accommodation ranges from the 4 Star Carnoustie Golf Hotel and 4 Star Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa to the exceptional 5 Star Gleneagles Hotel. As this is just a tour idea, you can change anything to suit your requirements whehter it is the golf courses, accommodation or length of stay. We will assist you to personalise your Tayside Golf Tour.

GOLF COURSE SELECTION

Carnoustie

Carnoustie Golf Links is thought to be most difficult of the golf courses in Scotland. It is also rated the most demanding of all the current Open Championship venues and has hosted the event on 7 occasions. Several greats such as Ben Hogan, Henry Cotton Gary Player and Tom Watson all lifted the Claret Jug here. It began as a 10 hole course built in 1842 and Old Tom Morris extended the course to 18 holes in 1857. James Braid extended and altered the course in 1926 and it has remained much the same since that date. The 6th hole is named Hogans Alley after Ben Hogan and is most likely the toughest Par 5 in the world of golf. a very demanding course, the final three holes are a great a test as you will find anywhere.

Gleneagles King's Course

The King's Course at Gleneagles is one of the finest heathland golf courses in Scotland and one of three at the stunning Gleneagles, the others being the Queen's Course and the PGA Centenary Course, the latter hosting the 2014 Ryder Cup Matches. A Par 71 course measuring 6,452 yards, it was designed by the legendary James Braid and winds it way serenely through the Estate of the Gleneagles Hotel amidst the magnificent Perthshire hills. This James Braid masterpiece has tested the shot making of the the best golfers in the world.

 

Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course

One of 3 magnificent heathland courses at Gleneagles Resort, the PGA Centenary Course hosted the 2014 Ryder Cup matches. Originally designed by legend Jack Nicklaus it is a Par 72 measuring 7,296 yards and consists of six par 3's, six par 4's and 6 par 5's and it winds its way through the heathlands of the Gleneagles Hotel amidst the beautiful Perthshire Hills. The newest, by far, of the three courses at Gleneagles and more Americanised than the King's and Queen's courses.

Gleneagles Queen's Course

The Gleneagles Queens Course measures 5,965 yards and is a Par 68. One of the most scenic heathland golf courses in Scotland, it is one of three championship courses at the majestic Gleneagles Resort. With a long history the Queen's Course has hosted some of the world's golfing greats including Tom Watson, Lee Trevino, Greg Norman, Johnny Miller and the late Severiano Ballesteros. Trevino once said on a visit to the Queen's Course - "If heaven is as good as this, I sure hope they have some tee times left."

Monifieth Medal Course

Although officially founded in 1858, there are references in Kirk session records to golf having been played as early as 1639. With 36 holes of golf Monifieth is ideal for a full days golf with a round over the championship Medal Course in the morning then after lunch playing the shorter but most enjoyable Ashludie Course. The Medal Course is a stern test and has been used for Open Championship Qualifying. There is a choice of 4 Clubhouses for visitors to choose from for meals and drinks.

 

Montrose Medal Course

Similar to Monifieth, Montrose offers 36 holes of golf with the Medal Course and the shorter Broomfield. The Medal Course is one of the most natural links golf courses in Scotland and is consistently in Golf Monthly World's Top 100 courses. Undulating fairways, deep bunkers, gorse, large sand dunes and fast but pure greens make the Medal Course a real test. The difficulty is increased if the wind blows in from the sea. It has several holes along the shoreline providing some magnificent views. Make a day of it and play the demanding Medal Course in the morning, have lunch and then enjoy a more sedate round over the shorter Broomfield  Course.
