Per­fect putting on beau­ti­ful Courier Coun­try doorstep

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - Advertising Feature -

With the Scot­tish Open just be­hind us, all eyes will be on Royal Birk­dale this week­end as the 146th Open Cham­pi­onship gets un­der way.

Qual­i­fy­ing for the flag­ship event con­tin­ued through the Open Qual­i­fy­ing Se­ries at the Scot­tish Open at Dun­don­ald with Cal­lum Shinkwin, Matthieu Pavon and An­drew Dodt all gain­ing last-minute entries to com­pete for the fa­mous Claret Jug.

Closer to home, play­ers fought it out for the qual­i­fi­ca­tion slots avail­able at Courier Coun­try’s own Pan­mure course back in June and if the great golf on show at the re­cent Ir­ish and Scot­tish Open and the Open Cham­pi­onship it­self gets you into the mood for a game, there is no bet­ter part of the world to pick up a put­ter.

From the reg­u­lar Open venues of the Old Course and Carnoustie to the stun­ning Perthshire golf re­sort of Gle­nea­gles, Courier Coun­try has so much to of­fer golfers of ev­ery stan­dard.

In St An­drews alone, the seven links cour­ses are com­ple­mented by the Duke’s Course, just in­land, and the beau­ti­ful links along the coast at Kings­barns, Crail and Elie.

Look to the heart of Fife for a more heath­land chal­lenge.

And fur­ther north, golfers are no less spoilt for choice in beau­ti­ful An­gus.

Treat your­self to a round on a hid­den gem such as the James Braid-de­signed heath­land course at Kir­riemuir.

If links golf is more your thing, head for the coastal chal­lenges at Mon­trose, Carnoustie or Ar­broath for a test of your skill.

In Perthshire, golfers aren’t just re­stricted to the high-end re­sort of Gle­nea­gles. Look out for the fa­mous cour­ses at Blair­gowrie, or take the time to ex­plore some of the lesser-known cour­ses while en­joy­ing the breath­tak­ing scenery that this part of the world has to of­fer.

And look out for great value spe­cial of­fers for vis­it­ing golfers.

Perthshire, Fife and An­gus of­fer some of the best golf­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties in Scot­land.
