GOLF DIAR Y


The Open (19–22 July 2018) the year 2018 heralds the arrival of 147th Open Championship and the eighth Open Championship to be held at Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus, Scotland. In 2007, the last time Angus threw open its doors to The Open, Padraig Harrington triumphed, winning the first of his two consecutive Open titles. Carnoustie is a natural choice as a host venue of this event as golf here dates back to the early 16th century. Since that time, the links has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the toughest golf destinations in the world due to the strong winds which blow along this exposed stretch of the Angus coast, perfectly positioned bunkering and a long, skinny design which, at 7,421 yards, is the longest of any of the Open venues.


Visit... St. Andrews In terms of Scotish charm, the town of St. Andrews is generously endowed. Situated on Scotland’s picturesque east coast, to the northeast of Edinburgh, this small seaside

setlement has a resident population of less than 18,000. Yet what it lacks in people, it more than makes up for in profile as one of best-known names in world-class golf; it really is known around the globe. Easily navigable on foot, St. Andrews is visitor- friendly with all its restaurants, cafes and delicatessens located within a mile of each other. A strong sense of community spirit prevails in this prety town, where flower beds, parks, streets and pavements are well-cared for in the name of civic pride. A handsome historic core of stone-built buildings is a protected conservation area and retains a genteel calm. Yet St. Andrews University, with its 7,000 or so undergraduates, plays a huge part in the character of St. Andrews, adding bookstores, literary events and vitality to one of Scotland’s most sophisticated tourist destinations — royalty, A-list celebrities and world leaders are regularly spoted in this seaside town.


Play... Trump International It’s owned by, arguably, the most famous


man on the planet — and has been no stranger itself to media controversy — but the turmoil that once blighted Donald Trump’s Aberdeen golf course has calmed significantly in the last two years. The North Sea crisis in 2016 saw its popularity slump among local golfers, forcing Trump to pump in extra millions to the golf resort while on the presidential campaign trail. Today, the fortunes of the Trump course in Aberdeen are much improved, with Donald himself tipping it as in the frame to host the 2019 Scotish Open. Greens are in mint condition, views over the dunes are gasp-inducing and the quietude creates a special atmosphere with just the sounds of the ocean as a distraction. Trump’s links course, which opened in 2012, has seen its popularity soar since its owner’s presidential inauguration — possibly because the 45th president (who claims a handicap of 2.8 and is entirely self-taught) clearly relishes his Aberdeen course as much as he does the game. trumpgolfscotland.com
