Review for Carnoustie (Championship)

Reviewer Score:


I played Carnoustie on a sunny day in September, with just enough wind (wouldn't want to play this one without wind now would we?). It is frankly the best layout I have ever played. There is not one weak hole, and you need to think all the time. However, it is not as tough as everyone makes it out to be, and if you can drive the ball relatively straight and stay out of the deepest bunkers you will be fine. My favourite holes were the 6th, Hogan's Alley, which I managed to birdie, and the fantastic finishing holes from 14 to 18, none of which I parred! All the staff on the course were extremely friendly. I can't wait for next year's open! Kem Westdyk, South Africa
