The work of prolific course designer James Braid, Kirriemuir is a charming wooded parkland course that offers an admirable and highly enjoyable test.
At the foot of the Angus Glens in Kirriemuir, a small town near Forfar, the 18-hole course measures around 5,500 yards and can typically be played in around three hours - music to the ears of many avid players.
Avenues of woods, gorse, and broom surround lush undulating fairways with greens that are impeccable and true. The views from the 4th hole with Lochnagar away in the distance are stunning, while in keeping with the layout of many great courses, Kirriemuir's best is reserved for the finish.
The formidable 17th hole is a 180-yard par-3 that is guarded by two majestic trees on either side of the putting surface along with its attendant bunkers.
