Carnoustie Golf Links, a regular host of The Open Championship, has been voted as the best golf course in Scotland in the Scottish Golf Tourism awards.
Voted for by the Scottish public, Carnoustie Golf Links came out top in the courses over £100 category, overtaking other world-renowned courses that reside in the home of golf.
“Over 33,000 votes were recorded, so we’re delighted that the majority felt that our course was the best out of an extremely high calibre field,” commented Colin McLeod, Golf Services Manager at Carnoustie Golf Links.
“We’ve been working incredibly hard to maintain and surpass the excellent standards that players expect from our course, and it’s the ultimate reward to see that this dedication to excellence has come to fruition.”
The awards are held annually to celebrate what’s great about Scottish Golf, and this year’s winners were announced at the gala dinner prize-giving that took place during Scottish golf tourism week.
Carnoustie Golf Links is currently in the early stages of an exciting development plan that will see a complete regeneration of the club building facilities available on site, due to be complete in time to welcome the world for the Open Championship in 2018.v
