I love it too, the first 18 hole course I ever played and still one of my favourites - it's in brilliant condition and lovely to play at the moment.
A friend of mine is a country member there and we play both courses on a regular basis particularly through the winter. It is one of the courses that is over shadowed by Carnoustie but in my opinion well worth a visit if in the area.

played Monfieth a dozens of times and would agree, very underrated, always enjoyable, never played the other course though

Played 9 again this afternoon, played better than Sunday but still searching a bit, but that is to be expected. Short game was coming back, struggling distance wise but didn't hit any chunks or thins. So on the way back.

looks like the 2nd course at Monifieth, llooks like 15th on the champioship in the background
Close but wrong direction - it's the old 11th (now the 16th since they reordered the holes this year) on the Ashludie at Monifieth, it runs in the opposite direction to the 15th on the Medal - what's behind the green though you can't really see it in the Monifieth to Carnoustie road.

I've only played once since lockdown and on Rosemount. The greens are a bit slow and fairways narrow. The rough is pretty high and well defined as first and second cut. I really like it like that, it reminds me of how courses used to be when I was a young lad! Apparently Lansdowne is even better but it really is testament to three greenkeepers maintaining three courses, when the normal contingent is 20!

Yep I'd agree with courses looking old time - kind of hope they stay like they are for a while.
