The Angus region is on Scotland\u2019s east coast, to the north of Fife and reaching up towards Aberdeen. It\u2019s gloriously under-rated, even though it is highlighted by an Open Championship venue in Carnoustie.<\/p>\n\n\n\n
Several of the courses are almost one continuous stretch of linksland to the north of Dundee, including Panmure and Montrose.
Panmure is Carnoustie\u2019s neighbour and it was here that the great Ben Hogan had to qualify for the 1953 Open that we would go on to win in what was his only appearance in the greatest championship of all. The 6th is named after him.<\/p>\n\n\n\n
Montrose, slightly further north, is one of the original golfing playgrounds. It dates all the way back, incredibly, to 1562. If you want to get to the very soul of links golf then this is a great place to start.<\/p>\n\n\n\n
