A specially-selected group of tour operators and golf writers from seven European countries recently visited Carnoustie Country.

As part of the trip they experienced the area’s golf courses, accommodation, food and drink - and warm welcome.

The group were the guests of Carnoustie Country, the Angus Council-led marketing initiative which promotes the 30 courses within a 40-minute drive of Carnoustie Championship course.

During their week-long stay, the group’s members played golf at Edzell, Carnoustie Championship, Monifieth Medal and Blairgowrie Rosemount and experienced hickory golf at Montrose Medal.

They also visited places in the local area such as Glamis Castle and Kinnettles Castle.

At the end of their visit, the majority of the group expressed a keen interest in featuring Carnoustie Country in their itineraries, including Toby Meegan of Norwegian golf tour specialists 1Golf.com.

“We’re looking forward with pride to sending our clients to Carnoustie Country,” said Toby. “The golfing heritage of the area is truly inspiring - very few places in the world can offer such a fantastic history of golf or such quality and diversity of golf courses within such a relatively small geographical area.

“In addition, the hospitality and food is fantastic, there’s a fabulous range of quality accommodation on offer, the scenery provides a truly spectacular backdrop – and there’s so much for everybody to see and do, not only golfers.”

Councillor Mairi Evans, Angus Council’s golf spokesperson, added “Judging by the high level of interest shown by those who attended, there should soon be a considerable increase in the number of European golfers playing and staying in this area.”
