Where2Golf says: 

Monifieth Golf Links: Home to two 18-hole links golf courses, Monifeith is actually played on by four separate local golf clubs. The longer and more prestigious of Monifeith's layouts is the Medal course, which is kept company by the shorter Ashludie course. Both offer an unusual (though not unique) Scottish golfing environment - a classic sandy-soil links layout that also has its fair share of tree-lined fairways.

The terrain throughout is generally flat, and on the Medal course, one of its boundaries is provided by the London-Aberdeen mainline railway, which runs the length of the course (and soon after passes alongside Panmure Golf Club and after a further mile or two, Carnoustie). The frequency of the trains (perhaps two per hour) will ensure your golf is barely interrupted, as you concentrate on hitting your tee shots straight, which Monifieth demands. Staying out of the well-positioned greenside bunkers will also serve you well.

Overall, Monifeith's Medal course is a pleasant and enjoyably challenging layout on which to hone your golfing skills. Those skills may well face sterner tests a little way to the north, not least on the revered Championship layout at nearby Carnoustie.
