Letham Grange Golf Club (Old Course): GOLF COURSE WAS CLOSED IN NOVEMBER 2019. It is unknown whether it will reopen at some time in the future. Check current status before planning a visit.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Located just north of the historic coastal city of Arbroath, Letham Grange once laid claim to being one of the premier leisure resorts in Scotland ... "the Augusta of the North" as the owners liked to call it. 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 (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.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
