The history of golf in Montrose stretches back 450 years and sections of the Medal course date back 350 years.

You really get a sense of that permanence when out on the links. You’re given the feeling that some of the holes must have always existed.

When I played this summer, the gorse was in bloom, the fairways firm and the greens fast and true – a joy to play (as always).

It’s a thinker’s course, where placement from the tee and careful consideration of pin positions is critical as many of the greens are large and undulating. FB

+ Excellent links layout kept in great condition; reliable greens - A number of clubs use the course so it can be busy

Fergus is a golf obsessive and 1-handicapper. Growing up in the North East of Scotland, golf runs through his veins and his passion for the sport was bolstered during his time at St Andrews university studying history. He went on to earn a post graduate diploma from the London School of Journalism. Fergus has worked for Golf Monthly since 2004 and has written two books on the game; "Great Golf Debates" together with Jezz Ellwood of Golf Monthly and "The Ultimate Golf Book" together with Neil Tappin (also of Golf Monthly)... Fergus once shanked a ball from just over Granny Clark's Wynd on the 18th of the Old Course that struck the St Andrews Golf Club and rebounded into the Valley of Sin, from where he saved par. Who says there's no golfing god?
