No 8 – Montrose Golf Links

Montrose is part of a rich stretch of links golf on Scotland’s north-east coast. Golf has been played for over 450 years at the venue, remarkably making it the fifth oldest in the world. Its greens, tees and fairways stretch along the North Sea, with the exception of holes 10 to 13, which are inland. A renowned venue for various amateur and professional championships, Old Tom worked with the Club in 1901 to make alterations to the original design. Willie Park Jnr made further modifications two years later, with several of the opening holes today played over the same centuries-old links land.
