Monifieth Golf Links
Monifieth Medal is the major of the two courses - the lesser is the 5,100 yard Ashludie, while 6,650 yard Medal course is used as an Open Championship qualifying venue. It is the most westerly of three renowned links on the Angus coastline, the others being Panmure and Carnoustie. The course is built over undulating links with ridge dunes covered in gorse covered and, unusually, for a links course many holes also have tree lined fairways. A tough test, it has a railway line running on one side and when the wind blows in from the Firth of Tay the big, fast, firm greens are difficult to find. The fourth will stick in the mind with a green protected by mounds which makes it an extremely tricky approach.
