Played here in Sept 2003 and loved it because of the Open history and the challenge of a real toughy etc. This year though I have played many links courses and to be honest Carnoustie is dropping down on my list. Yes it's got tough and memorable holes but how many ? For me about 7 of them and 3 of those are 16,17 and 18. The 'noustie must be played but by no means is it one of the best and in some places rather ordinary.
