The following terms and conditions are related to any new bookings made when date of play is after 31st March 2023.
It should be noted that groups of less than four may be joined to make a four ball.
If you request the services of a caddie please note that this is not included in the price of your green-fee, caddies are self-employed and should be paid cash-in-hand on completion of your round. The caddie fee is £55 plus a gratuity which is at your discretion. It is strongly recommended that caddies are booked no later than 24 hours in advance. Every endeavour will be made to provide caddies that are requested on the date of play, but this cannot be guaranteed.
CONFIRMED TEE TIMES
Once payment is made a Booking Confirmation will be sent. This must be presented to the Starter at time of play.
We ask that players wear appropriate golf attire whilst on the course. No football or rugby attire permitted.
DURATION OF ROUND
At Carnoustie Golf Links we are committed to a pace of play as indicated on your scorecards, which will ensure that everyone enjoys playing the course in a reasonable time. You can help us achieve this by playing from the tees that suit your ability and always being ready to play when it is your turn. We have our Course Marshals on the course to offer assistance and maintain pace of play. Please, as a courtesy to all golfers, do whatever is necessary to maintain your place on the course and keep up with the group in front of you. In the event of persistent slow play a Course Marshal may ask you to pick up your ball and move to the next hole or in severe cases remove you from the course if you are deemed to be repeatedly delaying other golfers.
Visitors must have a recognised handicap of 28 or less for men and 36 or less for women and should bring with them their current handicap certificate as these may be required prior to play. The same applies for Juniors and Juveniles. You can find our course handicap tables here.
In the event of lightning on the Links, golfers out on the courses are advised to cease playing. They should go to the nearest shelter or building until the lightning has moved away. Then they may return to their places on the course and complete their round. If green fee-paying golfers decide to abandon their round, rather than wait for the lightning to cease, refunds will not apply. Golfers on the first tee will be advised of any lightning that is evident or imminent close to the Links but it is their decision whether or not to play. If they miss their tee-time as a result, reasonable endeavours will be made to reschedule either later that day or the following day depending on availability. In an organised event, the decision to suspend or stop play lies with the tournament organiser. In the case of Links Tournaments, the responsibility lies with Links staff running the tournament.
Fog or Haar
In the event of fog or haar while on the golf courses, the decision to stop or continue play lies with the golfers, as it is recognised that conditions can change from minute to minute. Golfers on the first tee will be advised of the conditions by the starter. If golfers decide not to start, reasonable endeavours will be made to reschedule either later that day or the following day depending on availability. If golfers decide to play but do not complete 18 holes, refunds will not apply. In an organised event, the decision to suspend or stop play lies with the tournament organiser. In the case of Links Tournaments, the responsibility lies with Links staff running the tournament.
When heavy rain is expected, the holes are moved to high ground where possible. If it is still impossible to putt out then the course will be temporarily closed and play suspended. Golfers on the course should take shelter. When it is possible to restart, golfers should resume their game at their places on the course. If golfers decide to abandon their game, rather than wait for the rain to cease, refunds will not apply. Golfers on the first tee will be advised that the course is temporarily closed and reasonable endeavours will be made to re-schedule, but they may lose their starting time. If visiting golfer’s times cannot be re-scheduled, they will be offered a refund. In an organised event, the decision to suspend or stop play lies with the tournament organiser.
ON THE DAY
When arriving at the course, all golfers should present their Booking Confirmation and current handicap certificates to the starter. Without these items you may not be allowed to play and no refund will be made.
Prepaid green fees and/or deposits are non-refundable and non-transferrable after a 7 day cooling off period from the day payment is made unless the agreed booking is unreasonably moved or cancelled by Carnoustie Golf Links. Any reduction in numbers means the loss of the same deposit/full green fee.
Companies or organisations wishing to book on behalf of other parties may be liable to VAT.
The Winter period is regarded as play between November 1st and March 31st however that may be adjusted. During this period mats are to be used by all golfers to protect the fairways during the non growing season. Mats will be provided for your round. The courses may well be shortened and/or adjusted in the order of play. If ground conditions merit it Winter greens will be used.
