Where2Golf says: 

Letham Grange Golf Club (Old Course): Located just north of the historic coastal city of Arbroath, Letham Grange once laid claim to being the premier leisure resort in the East of Scotland. However the closure of the hotel facilities in 2011 has somewhat dented this aspiration. The general resort upkeep and presentation never reached the realms of Scotland's more revered Stay & Play venues such as Gleneagles, Carnoustie or St Andrews. This said, the Old Course at Letham Grange Golf Club (now a separate entitiy from the hotel), is certainly a well laid out, picturesque and challenging parkland course that has many admirers and has hosted a number of top quality amateur and professional events. Occupying both wooded and more open terrain, there are many holes requiring an accurate tee-shot where a bit of local knowledge will serve you well. Don't expect to shoot your handicap on a first visit. Water ditches play a key part on several holes, and the small lakes at the signature par-3 8th and par-4 10th add to the overall attraction of this entertaining course. Whether the course still maintains a 4-star level of upkeep and presentation is not known.

Did you know?

Letham Grange is located just 3 miles from the east coast fishing village of Arbroath, home of the famed Arbroath Smokie. Smokies originated in Auchmithie, a small fishing village just north of Arbroath. A smokie is a haddock that has been gutted, headed, cleaned, salted and then smoked in a special smokie pit. The fish is traditionally smoked in halved barrels with fires underneath and layers of hessian sacking trapping the smoke.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene.
