The Buddon Links course begins parallel with the adjacent Championship course and continues around the outside edge of that layout, making it the closest to the North Sea of all Carnoustie's courses.
First opened some 20 years ago, on land purchased from the Ministry of Defence (hence each hole is named after a famous battle), the Buddon Links received a mixed reaction from local players.
Since that time costal erosion and extensive alteration and upgrading have radically changed the original layout. These changes have met with great approval and the course is now extremely popular.
Far shorter than either the Championship or the Burnside, the Buddon Links course has seven par threes and only one par five and is therefore a much less demanding test of golf that provides an enjoyable round for all standards of golfers
