Carnoustie Golf Links

Comrie Golf Club

Scotland, East Coast, Tayside, Perthshire
Designer: James Braid
Course Opened: 1891

If you are looking for a classic James Braid design that makes full use of the natural topography, the 9 hole course at Comrie Golf Club is a "must play". From a golf course architect's perspective, the Laggan Braes tick many boxes - no two holes are remotely similar. Well shaped greens (some of which are raised) will challenge all aspects of your short game if your approach misses the putting surface, and the bunkers, whilst deep, are not overly penal. The views are a constant attraction, and even if your game is not A1, you will not come off the course feeling short changed.

A variety of tees provide something for all levels of golfer. Some challenging carries are required from the men's medal tees (Blue), but the course can also be equally enjoyed from the forward tees, with additional help available from beginners / seniors tee positions on the 3rd, 5th and 7th holes.

With stands of birch, pine, and larch throughout the course, golf at Comrie is a walk with nature. Keep an eye out for red squirrels, mistle thrush, woodpeckers and roe deer during your round. Overhead, buzzards, red kites and the occasional raven can also be spotted.

The club was founded in 1891 and the Laggan Braes course, located a short walk from the centre of the village, provides wonderful topography for a layout full of interest, with superb views over the village to the south and west. The legendary James Braid was commissioned by the Club to  recommend changes to the course layout in the 1920s. Apart from some minor changes, the course retains the Braid design to this day.
