There are 3 courses at Carnoustie. Apart from the world-famous Championship Course, there are 2 other excellent courses: the Burnside Course and the Buddon Links. Both are worthy of a visit, providing a different challenge. The Buddon Links course is the shortest. but with more par 3 holes, requires a good short game. The Burnside Course, which has been an Open qualifying course, has some tough tests, none more so than the 17th, which will challenge the best of players.
