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.
