Arbroath golf course is a traditional links course situated between the sea and farmland on the west side of the town. From the yellow tees the course is a 5826 yards par 68, expanding to a 6200 yards par 70 from the medal tees.
First impressions would suggest that this course would not provide much of a challenge to the accomplished golfer, but on closer inspection the true nature of the course becomes clear. Farmland on the right borders the first seven holes, making it essential that you work on your slice. On no fewer than nine occasions you will have to negotiate burns crossing the fairway, and strategically placed bunkers provide yet another opportunity to add to your score. Add to this the ever present ‘sea breeze’ and the challenge of the Arbroath links begins to focus the mind.
