The start of my very first Scottish golfing odyssey directed me towards Montrose Golf Links this afternoon. As a links devotee I was eager to see what joys awaited me on the links fairways of the home of golf.
Montrose will be of greatest interest to golfers on the front nine stretch through the first 7/8 holes. After that the holes seemed somewhat repetitive from a distance and playability perspective.
As previously pointed out, parts of the front nine may not be there in the very near future due to coastal erosion. Surely the local council can get their finger out and stump up for some rock armour on the beach side of the property to make sure that the 1562 links lasts well into this century!
A nice course...with a friendly welcome..... not quite a must play but worth a trip if you are in the area.
Food and drink option must be Roos Leap which is right beside the course carpark!
