What the club says: Originally laid out by Old Tom Morris and later redesigned by James Braid the course at Forfar is set on beautiful wooded heathland. The terrain is almost ‘links’ like with undulating fairways lined by Scots Pine and lovely views towards the Angus Glens. With very little walking between green and next tee, generous fairways and excellent greens this compact course is easily completed in 3 ½ hours and can be tackled twice in a day quite comfortably.

Scenic and Tight.

Was very impressed with this course. Lots of rolling fairways and tight legs. Some great scenic holes. If you can keep the ball staright then you can hope to score well. Give it a try if you are ever up in Tayside and you will enjoy it. With this current dry weather then a simple bump and run was proving dividends as opossed to throwing it up in the air every time.

Only two buggies which were petrol and ran like tractors you are best walking. Other than that the course is good and the staff friendly.only had bacon roll & coffee so cannot say anything about the meals. I would play this course again but in the summer.

Nice course to play on. The ground staff look like they do a great job in keeping the course up to a very good standard. There are a few of the holes that you have to play blind because of the parkland status with lots of hills to add to the fun.

Played slightly shorter that the yellow marks, but still a good course with plenty to offer the golfer. Sloping greens and makes strategy key.

Lovely compact course. Not overly long but need to think your way round this one. Fairway bunkers placed to catch some drives if slightly off line. Greens played very true. Didn't use catering or clubhouse on this visit, hence neutral marks.Some signs of recent wet weather having adverse effect in a few areas but generally playing line was in good condition. Used an offer available for local clubs so good value. Suggest biggest compliment is to say that I will be back to give this another go !!

Expect to find this course in good condition, it has been on the occasions I have had the pleasure to visit. Greens very good and fairways / bunkers well maintained. Some tricky holes. Didn't use the clubhouse or catering, so neutral marking here.
