Old Tom Morris is an iconic figure in the history of golf and has a special connection with The Carnoustie Links. He worked with Alan Robertson who designed the original 10 hole course, Tom then returned in 1867 to design and add the further 8 holes. His career covered not only ball & club making but golf instructor and course designer and he is considered to be the “father of modern day greenkeeping” introducing techniques such as top-dressing greens with sand which are still in use today. He still holds the record of being the oldest winner of The Open.
Carnoustie Golf Links is responsible for managing and maintaining 3 golf courses at Carnoustie, one of which is the world-famous Championship course, host course for 7 Open Championships and the venue for the Open in 2018.
Carnoustie Golf Links is a registered Scottish Charity and the golf courses at Carnoustie are a public facility, open to everyone.
