Course Description

Regarded as the world's oldest 18-hole golf course from inception and the fourth oldest course in the world, Forfar was laid out by Old Tom Morris in 1871 and, for more than 50 years, it remained the same until changes by James Braid in 1926.However, since then, the course has been virtually untouched.

Despite being more than ten miles from the Angus coast, Forfar displays many links-like undulations that often leaves visitors mystified, but there are some cracking holes on the par-69 layout which comfortably sits inside Scotland’s top 100.

The 412-yard 15th hole, called ‘Braid’s Best’, is the signature hole. A dogleg right, it favours a fade off the tee, with three bunkers protecting the front of a raised green, while a steep slope to the left will punish any pulled approach shots.

It’s the unique blend of a links-like surface, parkland avenue and heathland heather and gorse that makes Forfar so appealing.

The holes are carved through 80 acres of wooded estate and each fairway is played largely separate of the others. Length off the tee is not paramount here as ten of the 13 par-4s are less than 400 yards long.

But don’t let that make you think Forfar will be a straight-forward test, as accuracy is key with keeping the ball in play certainly the main objective.
