Our Courses

The Montrose Golf Links comprises of two wonderful courses in the finest tradition of golf links.

Situated along the rugged coastline of Angus in the very heart of Scotland’s ‘Golf Country’ Montrose’s courses provide a challenge for golfers of all abilities and the Medal Course is widely regarded as being one of the world’s ‘must play’ courses by Scots and international golfers.  Being the fifth oldest course in the world, The Medal course has been used for many important tournaments over the years including the Scottish Professional Championship in 1967 and 1970,the Scottish Amateur Championship in 1975, British Boys’ Championship and Internationals in 1991, Final Qualifying for the Open Championship held at Carnoustie in 1999 and again in 2007, World Hickory Open in 2013, the Europro Tour in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 and the Senior Open Championship Final Qualifying in 2016.

The two courses provide their own individual challenges:

The Medal

The Medal Course is challenge for any golfer. This is a traditional Scottish links course with springy turf that grows only close to the sea , dunes,gorse, deep bunkers and tall wavy grass that changes colour and dances in the wind. The holes are laid out in an unusual T-shaped configuration. The front nine plays mainly along the shoreline and offers excellent views across the North Sea. The Medal Course features in the Top 100 Courses in the World.

‘A magnificent stretch of marvellously natural ground which depicts how the game was born’ was how Ben Crenshaw described the Montrose Medal, ‘If you are looking for classic Scottish links courses to play, this is a must’.


The Broomfield Course is ideal for juniors, families and those wishing to ‘get their eye in’ before taking on the Medal course. Being relatively flat, the Broomfield can be somewhat deceptive as it still requires a high degree of accuracy from the tees to small greens.

Many visitors play the Broomfield in the morning before a hearty clubhouse lunch in preparation for the Medal course in the afternoon.
