There are many who believe that the Championship Course at Carnoustie is the finest test of championship golf to be found anywhere the game is played.
Allan Robertson, the first player to break 80 around the Old Course at St Andrews and now recognised as the games first professional golfer, was the man who laid out the original course back in the middle of the 19th century but inevitably it was five-times Open Champion James Braid who was called in to revamp the course in 1926. There can be no finer tribute to this remarkable Angus links than the role of champions who have won there. Tommy Armour, Sir Henry Cotton, Gary Player, Tom Watson, Paul Lawrie and of course the legendary Ben Hogan who won the only Open Championship he ever played in at Carnoustie in 1953.
