In Volume 1 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.
“It was at Panmure that Ben Hogan practiced for two weeks prior to his victory in the Open Championship at Carnoustie in 1953, giving the club a place in the lore of Scottish golf. The first three holes start across flat farmland, with the last three holes coming in alongside, and you wonder what you are doing here; but then the course breaks into an area of low dunes and heather that provides some memorable golf. The par-4 6th is by far the class of the course, with its elevated green guarded at the front right by a hidden pot bunker that was suggested by Hogan himself.”
Panmure Golf Club received a score of 5 out of 10 from Tom Doak and a score of 5 out of 10 from one of his co-authors.
