Golf Centre to be Redeveloped at Carnoustie in Time for 2018 Open

By: Golfshake Editor | Thu 18 Aug 2016

Carnoustie Golf Links has been granted permission to redevelop its golf centre, with the enhancements due to be completed in time for the 2018 Open Championship, which is to be contested on the famed Angus course. During this process, the current club building will receive a complete renovation, with the objective being to create a modern, open space for dining and relaxing after a round.

“The planning permission has come through at an exciting time for us as we’ll be able to showcase the completed developments to a global audience during The Open Championship in 2018,” commented Pat Sawers, Chairman of the Carnoustie Golf Links Management Committee.

“The new facilities will offer 21st century style and convenience to all of our visitors throughout the year, whether they’re world class professionals from across the globe, or locals looking for a place to relax and enjoy the stunning scenery.”

The star feature of the project will be the full length windows that will be installed throughout the upper floor of the building. This viewing gallery will reveal never-before-seen panoramas of the notoriously challenging closing holes of the links course, and will be accessible to all who visit the golf centre.

As well as extensive renovations to the club building, cutting-edge golf simulator bays will be installed at the driving range to provide players with the latest technology to use during their warm-up and practice routines.

The team at Carnoustie are continually looking to develop and evolve the centre to meet the needs of the modern day, global golfer, and see this investment as the perfect representation of the forward-thinking nature that the venue prides itself upon: 

“Service levels across the world are constantly improving, and we are continually working to enhance the experience that we can offer to those coming to our club,” commented Graeme Duncan, General Manager of the Carnoustie Golf Links Management Committee.

“We want everyone who visits Carnoustie to be impressed by the experience that they have, and leave with the desire to come back and experience it all again.”
