Montrose Golf Links, Montrose Scotland

Montrose Golf Links, Montrose Scotland Highlights

The sixth-oldest golf course in the world is located up the east coast of Scotland, north of Carnoustie, and still south of Aberdeen, in the town of Montrose. This is the Montrose Golf Links, where golf reportedly dates back to 1562, and the championship Medal Course is a traditional, challenging course that is worthy of so much more world acclaim than it actually enjoys. The town of Montrose Scotland itself, whose famous cathedral spire is the symbol of the links, simply reveres the game of golf. In fact, the reason that most people are not familiar with golf at Montrose and the superb Medal Course is because no less than three local clubs play on these links. Starting times can therefore be difficult to come by, so Montrose Golf Links engages in very little self-promotion. For those that do make it out at Montrose Golf Links’ Medal Course, they experience golf as the locals do, with few Americans or other tourists. And, they have the opportunity to partake in any one, or better yet all three, of the local golf clubs and their distinctive individual clubhouses. Play Montrose Golf Links Medal Course on the way to or from Aberdeen, and throw in a round with the locals on your Scotland golf trip! You won’t regret it!
