Carnoustie, Scotland, in wind and rain. Nothing comparable on earth---it wasn't dubbed "Carnasty" for nothing.
But having played all the Open Championship courses in Britain, and in the Open on more than one occasion, I have to say they are no fun. I greatly prefer the many,.many unknown courses, mainly in Scotland, of incomparable beauty such as Callander and Comrie in Perthshire and particularly Rosemount. If any of you Americans are visiting Britain, PLEASE do not confine your golf to the famous courses----there are numerous sublime courses you would love.....and we want you to enjoy such a visit, not tire yourselves out playing inhospitable tracks like Carnoustie ! Not just that, but courses like the Old Course at St. Andrews are difficult to get on, and then cost over 250 dollars a round, whilst a superb, enjoyable course like Callander is around 30 dollars !
