MONIFIETH GOLF LINKS | WINTER GOLF

This winter, head to Monifieth in Angus for an unbeatable offer to play its two courses.


From October 1, 2016 – March 31, 2017, you can have membership of the Medal Course (valid Monday – Friday) and the Ashludie Course (valid seven days) for only £150 – not bad considering the Medal Course was an Open Qualifying venue for when the Open was at nearby Carnoustie in 2007.

What’s more, the club enjoyed a wonderful visit from five-time Open champion Tom Watson in the summer when he came across for the Senior Open, which was held at Carnoustie.

The 67-year-old first teed off on the Monifieth Medal in 1975 when he discovered nearby Carnoustie was closed for practice games ahead of his first Open.

Local legend has it that Watson was a quick study on the links, and went on to capture the first of five Open Championships, beating Australian Jack Newton in an 18-hole play-off.

As a result, he was awarded honorary life membership of the course and was presented his certificate and a memorial plaque before recreating his infamous first tee shot on a links course.

Monifieth is built over undulating links with some old dune ridges – often gorse covered – between fairways and, unusually for a links, many holes have tree-lined fairways.

The Medal has a reputation as a hard, uncompromising course, which is bounded on one side by the main railway line to the north and, when the wind blows in from the Firth of Tay, be prepared for a testing round of golf.
