If golf was a religion, which for many it may as well be, then travelling to play in this region is a worthy pilgrimage. These courses come with a huge side-helping of Highland hospitality making the experience very hard to beat.

"A seriously good publication."

Apart from being one of the finest links courses in the UK, Panmure was the perfect place to prepare for The Open of 1953 as it is just two miles from Carnoustie . Ben Hogan was accompanied only by his caddie, Cecil Timms, for that fortnight of intensive preparation.
