Montrose Golf Links was founded in 1810 and is considered to be the seventh oldest course in the world. Golf is known to have been played on these hallowed Links all the way back to 1562. In 1845 Prince Albert granted the club royal patronage and it Became Royal Montrose. If you want to experience the historic course make it a Priority. Don’t wait too long as coastal erosion is not slowly redefining the course.
Montrose links embody every detail that makes a round of golf so addictive and original. No 2 rounds played here are ever the same. The course has been shaped by mother nature and its elements over hundreds of years and there are just so many small things that have fused together to create a unique golf experience. If you are looking for a natural true links experience then it’s time to play 1562 and add your name to the thousands who have gone before you
Influenced and redesigned by both Old Tom Morris and Willie Park Junior the layout at Montrose is truly excellent and it is sure to test every department of your game. There’s lots of fun to be had on a course that you will never tire of playing. Expect some elevation changes as you head out towards a rugged coastline before reaching the sheltered gorse land. Then you’ll slowly climb back up to higher grounds before reaching the elevated 18th tee and completing a satisfying journey through the sandhills and Gorse Bushes of Montrose.
Expect a great challenge. The 1562 course lays down a strong marker at the very first hole. You will require a straight drive between the fairway bunkers. This will set you up for your approach to a raised green at the summit of the gradually rising hill. It’s an intimidating hole and one that certainly doesn’t allow you to ease your way into the round. If you are lucky enough to play the course when the cold wind is whipping in off the North Sea. The next five holes will provide you with the most exhilarating round of links golf.
