Montrose Golf Links

About the course

Did you know that Montrose Golf Links is considered the seventh oldest course in the world? Records state that golf has been played here since 1562, but the first golf club was not established until 1810.

The 1562 course is ranked 43rd in the Scottish Top 100 Courses for 2023 and is described as “a beautiful stretch of stunning scenery”. Course 1562 is a challenge for golfers due to its undulating fairways and fast greens, which are even more difficult when the wind blows inland from the sea.
The 1562 course has all the key ingredients that make up one of the greatest challenges in the world of golf – a rugged and undulating course (but one that is easy to navigate), several deep bunkers, springy but fast-draining grass, abundant ravines, plenty of sand dunes and fantastic greens. A number of holes run along the rugged Angus coastline and offer spectacular scenery.
The course can also offer one of golf’s greatest challenges – the easterly wind demands the utmost respect from even the most experienced golfers.
