Forfar definitely deserves to be higher in the rankings. 'Gem' status does not do it justice. I played it three years ago on a beautiful October morning and loved it. Braid's design is excellent, particularly the par 3's. The humps and hollows give it a links-like appearance in places but there are tree-lined fairways. The greens were also superb. I do recall thinking the 18th was a little weak but I hope to go back there one day. Thoroughly recommended.
