Carnoustie (Burnside)


The burnside is known for its short holes, and the 158-yard 5th hole, dubbed "burn," and the 228-yard 14th hole, dubbed "scoup," will fit in well on any championship course. With the long par four 17th – âĢľsinkiesâĢĿ – measuring 473 yards and perhaps one of the most challenging par fours anywhere, a good finish is required. There's no respite at the 18th hole, the 307-yard par four "lismore," where the out of bounds barrier has ruined many a scorecard.

The burnside may be overshadowed by its more popular neighbor, but it has its own personality and beauty, and it is a fine game of golf in its own right, with a par of 68 and a standard scratch score of 70 to prove it.

Carnoustie's three public links courses – championship, burnside, and buddon – are used by a number of local clubs, including carnoustie caledonia, carnoustie mercantile, carnoustie new taymouth, dalhousie, and carnoustie ladies, which was established in 1873 and is the world's oldest female golf club.
