Monifieth Medal is a wonderful little course, a few miles south of the more famous Carnoustie. Here, as with many of the courses in the area, there are several golf clubs, all playing on the same land.
You pay your modest greenfee at the small starters hut, and you’re good to go. If you need a trolley, rent one at the pro shop nearby.
The Medal course was first laid out in 1845 by Alan Robertson and Alexander Pirie, and in 1880 it was extended to the current 18 hole layout. It has been used as a qualifying course for the Open Championship when the Open has been played on the nearby Carnoustie.
