2 reviews of Monifieth Golf Links
We played on May 23rd, 2008 in cold and windy, though dry conditons. A special mention to the reception we received from the starter. We were greeted by handshake, offered a coffee and useful tips how to handle the course in those windy conditions. Some extra tips were given by the professional. They made us feel as welcome guests.
We played the first 6 holes along the railway directly into the wind making them tougher then they properbly are. Hard, rolling fairways and very good greens makes the course a pleasure to play. Recommended also the clubhouse bar inviting to stay for an extra pint or 2.
There are two courses at Monifeith, the Ashludie and the Medal. The 'Ludie' is short and is really for children and old men. The Medal is a different proposition altogether. This is a typical Scottish links course with bumpy fairways and hard, fast greens. And, of course, the wind. Your round starts in quite a benign manner with a couple of short par four holes that play with the prevailing Westerlies. But by the fourth, when the burn comes into play for the first time, you begin to get a real feel for the place. And when you turn into the wind you know you have a real challenge on your hands. Van de Velde qualified for the Open here the year he blew it at neighbouring Carnoustie. Recommended.
