On a hillside overlooking the beautiful Angus glens, James Braid created a superb course with remarkable views and a great golfing test at its heart. Established in 1903, Kirriemuir Golf Club is a parkland layout featuring avenues of trees, with gorse and broom surrounding undulating fairways that lead to stunning greens. The views in particular from the 4th hole, with impressive peaks of Lochnager in the distance, are inspiring.
A little-known but much-loved Scottish course which is ideal for a golfing break, Kirriemuir Golf Club provides a feast for the senses as well as a thoroughly enjoyable test of golf for all level of golfers.
Kirriemuir can lull you into a false sense that it is short and easy. But resist the temptation to use the driver off the tee and play for position instead. Be cautious with your approach shots as most of the greens are smaller than you would expect. Like many of the great golf courses, Kirriemuir’s best is reserved for the finish. The 17th and 18th are two fantastic closing holes that will test your skills to the very end of your round.
