A winning blend of natural countryside beauty, artistically shaped fairways and excellent rolling greens, Carnwath is regarded among the very best kept golf courses in Lanarkshire. Although the course is roughly 6,000 yards in length, three of its four Par 3’s are in the first four holes – so it is important to be swinging well straight from the word go. Not least because the 2nd, ‘The Yett’, is a 234-yard challenge which is significantly bunkered at the front and features run-offs round the back.
As the round progresses, several roads and a railway line come into play. A premium is placed on accuracy as opposed to length when taking on our very own ‘Amen Corner’ through 5, 6, 7 & 8 and players are pleased to see the distant views offered by the 9th tee afterwards. If you can conquer the front nine, there is opportunity to take on some enticing Par 4’s in the back nine.
However, Carnwath boasts a tough finish, ensuring that a good score is never given up lightly. The 15th, ‘St Mary’s Aisle’, is a short Par 4 but it is a dog leg left, so the recurring theme of accuracy and astute course management is required. The same applies to the 16th, with trees ready to block you out off the tee and a small, narrow green makes finding it a tricky task.
Then more muscle is required on the penultimate hole, a 455-yard Par 4 which has trees and out of bounds up the left and more woodland on the opposite side of the fairway – it can be a monster of a hole in the southerly winds. Even longer hitters will be hitting a mid-iron or more into the green, which has hollows and mounds round its edges.
The 18th, ‘Moss Burn’, is a terrific closing Par 5 with out of bounds again lurking up the left. It is a long, “straightforward” hole finishing on a green with a false front and step run-off at the back – a traditional risk and reward hole with the clubhouse (and more importantly those inside) watching intently.
