Golf in Montrose

Montrose Links is undoubtedly one of the oldest and most historic links in Scotland, golf having been played here for more than 450 years.  To a young Montrose lad by the name of James Melville goes the credit for recording the existence of golf at Montrose as early as 1562, so the game was obviously being played on these links prior to that date.

While Montrose cannot boast the permanency of the Old Course at St. Andrews for instance, there are still parts of the Montrose Champion-ship course which have been played over for more than 450 years.

What Montrose can claim uniquely however, is to have had at one stage in its history the course with the greatest number of holes.

When Musselburgh had 5 holes, Montrose had 25 holes and although they were not all played on every occasion they were used for a unique event in 1866 which attracted Willie Park, Andrew Strath and Jamie Anderson, three players who were all Open Champions.

The Medal course at Montrose is a majestic layout in the true traditions of Scottish Links golf and has hosted many events in its history.

Events played over Montrose include: -
