Review for Montrose (1562)

Reviewer Score:


Played 36 holes in late March - the morning round off the yellows and the afternoon one off the whites (refreshing to be allowed to choose one's tees).Absolutely loved the course - everything I expect from links golf. Particularly impressed with the bunkering which demanded respect from almost every drive and approach shot. No weak hole on the course - the par 4s varying from the drivable (wind behind) risk/reward 5th to the extremely challenging (wind against) 11th with gorse and bunkers everywhere. The two par 5's are very different but both great fun - trying to reach in two on the 15th was an adrenaline rush!Some have said that the outward nine (following the coast) is more 'interesting'. The front nine has the better 'looks' but I found the back nine more testing. Definitely the best value course I have ever played with a day rate and, with the exception of numerous holidays to Machrihanish, cannot remember a more enjoyable day's golf.
