“Fabulous greens”
Review of Panmure Golf Club

Attraction details
Owner description: Design influenced by the five times Open Champion and famous course architect James Braid, this traditional 18-hole Championship links course measures 6,360 yards.We are very proud of our traditions, our Clubhouse and, most of all, our Golf Course which combines the best elements of links and heath.With tight fairways, challenging carries and compact, undulating greens, it is admired by visitors from home and overseas. Old Scots pines and sandhills forged by nature give the terrain an enduring quality in keeping with its long history. Hallmarks such as the 'Hogan' hole (the sixth) and the Buddon Burn (the twelfth) conspire to give you a round of golf to remember.Our Clubhouse is one of the finest old golf buildings in Scotland. Its unique and delightful lounges are full of character. Devotees of the history of golf will be interested to know of our origins, borne of the close trading relationship between Dundee and Calcutta in the halcyon days of the Jute Industry. Friendly staff afford a real Scottish welcome and good food and wine will complete your day here.

Played Panmure last week as one of the four courses in the Carnoustie Country Classic. The course is in excellent condition and the greens are among the best in Scotland. As with all Scotland golf, as the wind changes direction, so changes the course. This was my sixth time at Panmure. Last year the wind was from the north, making the long par 4s on the back nine very difficult. This year the wind was equally strong from the south, such that it was now a challenge not to hit over greens that couldn't be reached last year. The course is easy to find as the impressive clubhouse is visible from the road connecting Carnoustie and Monifieth. It is only a minute drive south of the town of Carnoustie. The 6th hole is named after Ben Hogan, who practiced here before playing and winning the 53 British Open down the road. A very difficult par 4 requiring a precise second shot to an elevated green surrounded by gorse bushes. There are many great golf courses in Scotland, but if your golfing plans involve a visit to Carnoustie, try the neighboring Panmure links as well. You won't be disappointed.

I throughly enjoy Panmure, I play it every time I am up around St.Andrews / Dundee on golf trips. It is a good challenge for any level of Golfer, I am off 2 and my dad is off 18, obviously playing different styles of golf, we both find it fun and a great challenge. Watch out for Ben Hogan's favourite hole, the 6th, easy drive, punishing second! brilliant hole.

We played a couple of weeks ago and although we had luck with the weather, the course was magnificent, great condition, very challenging. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, couldn't rate it highly enough, thanks to all at Panmure.

Early in the season after a hard winter, but a good golf experience. It was our second round of the day...so we were beat, but enjoyed the round.
