Arbroath Golf Course is a traditional links course with a great pedigree. Designed originally by Old Tom Morris in 1877 the course was updated by Willie Fernie in 1907 and then in 1931 the great James Braid did a re-design. Dunes run the length of the course on the seaward side which means the wind is always a factor. Besides the sea breezes there are over 70 bunkers to contend with and Braid bunkers can be penal. An out of bounds runs down the length of the course on the first 7 holes and comes into play on the 13th and 18th holes on the right hand side of the course. Three burns run across the course towards the sea and come into play on 8 holes. There is plenty to challenge all levels of golfer on Arbroath with a par of 68 off box tees and 70 off the medal tees At the end of the round relax in the spacious lounge of Arbroath Golf Club overlooking the 18th green or on a nice day sit outside in the beer garden enjoying a meal or snack with a drink and watch other golfers trying to master the course.
