Special Carnoustie offer to UK golfers

9.00am 13th June 2003 - Travel

Carnoustie Golf Links Management Committee has announced a special offer enabling golfers who are members of golf clubs in the United Kingdom to play the famous championship course for £200 per tee time. This allows a group of four to play one of the world’s greatest golf courses for only £50 per head.

The famous Angus links, established over 400 years ago, has hosted many national competitions, including five Open Championships since 1931. It was there, exactly 50 years ago for example, that Ben Hogan won on his one and only appearance and there, more recently, that Jean Van de Velde infamously came to grief on the difficult eighteenth hole, allowing Paul Lawrie to take the title in a play-off in 1999.

Carnoustie is without doubt one of the world’s greatest tests of golf and a course all golfers have to play at least once in their lives. Under the terms of this new offer, members of British golf clubs can secure a tee time for a special price of £200. This is subject to availability. Tee times cannot be booked more than eight weeks in advance.

Golfers interested in this offer should call Carnoustie Golf Links on 01241 853789

More information about the offer is available direct from Colin McLeod, Golf Services Manager on 01241 417015
