Golf Course Review

Golf was played at Downfield Golf Club around the turn of the century on a 9 hole course. During WW1, the course was lost when the ground was used for agricultural use. It would be 1932 before golf was once again played on the grounds. It wasn't long before the course was extended to 18 holes. By 1964, the course was again modified and revamped which is largely the course we know today.

Downfield Golf Club is a parkland golf course where golf began and where links golf reigns supreme. Any inland golf course in this neck of the woods has to be good to even get a mention. Tree-lined, inland golf will never compete with nearby Carnoustie and St Andrews. However, if the links are rammed, Downfield Golf Club is an off the radar parkland course that is a surprisingly good option found on the north side of Dundee.
