Carnoustie - Championship 4.5 5 2 2
Quite possibly Britain's most difficult links Carnoustie is not romantic, it does not whisper sweet refrains of the joys of a life lived without constraint. In many ways, it is perfectly fitting that this was the course where Ben Hogan won his one and only Open Championship in which he competed in 1953 (the Scots named him “the wee Ice Man” that week). Like Hogan, Carnoustie is a course that we want to love and to understand it’s mystery; it’s mystic, but it remains emotionally indifferent in guiding us down our pathway to discovery. Carnoustie is described as the most difficult course in all of Great Britain and it may well be if the winds of fate turn against you. From the par 5, 6th (“Hogan’s Alley”) to the finishing holes that posses the subtlety of a punch in the jaw, Cournoustie could not care less about your sense of inspiration, yet you will depart inspired none-the-less.

There are prettier Open Championship courses... Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed my round on Carnoustie, getting brutalized at every turn by its massive pots, narrow fairways and sinister greens. I just tend to favor more scenic links in Scotland like Royal Dornoch, North Berwick and Cruden Bay. History abounds at every turn here. Playing the closing holes at Carnoustie, thanks to the infamous Wee Burn, are no picnic, just be happy to escape without having to partially disrobe like a certain Open Championship competitor. Good thing the hotel and bar were built in recent years, so a pint or two is nearby. You'll need one after playing here. By the way, I'm happy to report I carded a tidy 7 on 18 just like Mr. Van de Velde. February 26, 2014
