Forfar is a stunning heathland course, designed by Old Tom Morris in 1871 with alterations made by James Braid in 1926. The terrain of the course has an almost ‘links’ feel with undulating fairways lined by Scots Pine and stunning views towards the Angus glens.
The course is of such a high quality that it has been the venue for the Scottish PGA Championship, the Scottish Boys Stroke Play and the Girls Home Internationals.
Forfar is an ideal stop on a special golf vacation around Scotland. It offers a brisk but challenging game with the undulating fairways and subtle greens testing your golf skills at every turn. A friendly clubhouse completes the package, but don’t forget to order a famous Forfar bridie – it’s the local delicacy!
Standing on most tees at Forfar may give the impression of a tight tee shot, and although wayward shots will be punished, the fairways are more generous than they look. The main feature here is playing approach shots from uncertain lies due to the many slopes around the course. The greens also offer up some interesting gradients to test your putting skills. All in all, Forfar golf course presents a fascinating challenge.
