Angus Trail

Some of the finest inland golf courses can be found in Dundee & Angus along the James Braid Angus Golf Trail. From Downfield on the outskirts of Dundee to Edzell at the gateway to the Highlands, tee off on these historic courses and admire the area's stunning scenery as you complete the 18-hole and 9-hole games.

Edzell Golf Club

This 18-hole heathland course was redesigned by James Braid during the early 1930s and remains virtually unchanged today. Set amid the picturesque backdrop of the Angus Glens, golfers must avoid the disused railway line along which much of the course runs.

James Braid expanded the course at Alyth from 13 to 18-holes just before the start of World War II. The emphasis is on precision golf rather than distance, so golfers should look out for the tree-lined fairways and diverse terrain around the course.

This superb heathland course is another of James Braid’s inland classics. The course is undulating, with tree-lined fairways and excellent greens. The 15th hole, known as ‘Braid's Best’, is the signature hole of the course.

Although little remains of James Braid's original design at Downfield, the present course is still considered to be one of the most testing inland courses around. The 18-hole woodland course is situated on the outskirts of the city of Dundee.
