Carnoustie Golf Links (Buddon Course)


3+ (3 gold): one of our top-rated 3-star courses, worthy of 3½ stars.
   Carnoustie Golf Links (Buddon Course) Est. 1979

Where2Golf says: 

Carnoustie Golf Links is home to the locally well-regarded Buddon course, which wraps around the south and west sides of the revered Championship layout. Although the newest and third ranked of the three links courses at Carnoustie, the Buddon gets you closest to the North Sea and, on a windy day, lays down an equally tough test of your golfing skills. Course description, images and other details to follow soon.

Stay & Play at Carnoustie: onsite hotel accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Did you know?

Carnoustie Golf Links lies directly south of the west side of the town of Carnoustie. A little further west is the village of Barry and further still, lies an army training and shooting facility at Buddon, known as the Barry Buddon Training Camp. Running through Carnoustie's famous championship course is the Barry Burn, while skirting the training camp is the Buddon Burn. It is from these local place names that the three Carnoustie Links courses take their names.
