Panmure is sandwiched between the world famous championship links of Carnoustie and Monifieth on the Angus coast just a few miles to the east of Dundee. Originally founded in 1845, this is recognised as one of the oldest clubs in the world.
The course’s quality cannot be questioned, having staged many notable competitions over the years – including Final Qualifying for the Open Championship. It begins with a fairly gentle stretch of holes to ease you in and whet the appetite, then the course really comes in to it’s own just before and after the turn.
For most people, their overriding memory of a round at Panmure is the 6th – named ‘Hogan’ after the former Open champion who tuned his game here before his victory at Carnoustie in 1953. It is reported that the legendary Ben’s attention was captured by this fantastic par 4 which curves to the left towards a beautiful plateaued green.
Panmure is a little understated and perhaps underrated – maybe it gets overlooked in some quarters given its close proximity to the neighbouring Carnoustie. However, if it is good enough for Mr Hogan then it is certainly good enough for us, and it should be for you as well.
