Any excuse is a good excuse to get out of the office on Friday afternoon. But when the reason for one´s absence from in front of the computer screen is a round of golf at one of Scotland´s historic links courses then no justification is required!
It was last Friday that I was invited to attend a press event at Montrose Links to celebrate its remarkable 450th anniversary this year making it the fifth oldest course in the world. Sitting in the heart of Carnoustie Country only an hour away from St Andrews and Gleneagles and thirty minutes from Carnoustie itself, Montrose is an ideal base for a memorable golfing break. There are incredible thirty golf courses within a 40-mile drive of Carnoustie Championship and Montrose is just one of them. I have never visited the links before so I was really excited about the opportunity. The icing on the cake was that we would get to meet the legendary Scottish golfer Catriona Matthew on the day.
