I'll agree with reviewer’s comments also on the "bland" feeling of Carnoustie. Those industrial buildings do stand out and take some of the special appeal away.But don't let this put you off!! The greens are superb, the caddies very friendly and knowledgeable, and as for that closing stretch, wow! You have to go for the Van De Velde shot regardless of whether you make it or not. I did, and made it (just). Good job I did, the tide was in and the water waist deep!!!
