About the Club

Caird Park Golf Course (Established 1923)

Caird Park golf course is set in extensive parkland on the northern outskirts of Dundee close to the city centre and is a testing course for golfers who wish to refresh their style of play and enjoy a relaxing game.

A reasonably easy start belies the difficulty of the middle section holes 7 to 13. The 243-yard 12th hole is a particular test whilst the back 9 crosses the Gelly burn four times.

Trees and rough help to tighten up the course considerable especially the first half. Caird Park finishes well and adds up to a most enjoyable round.

Golf writer and former editor of Scottish Golf Martin Vousden writes:

Set in parkland with mature trees Caird Park is an enjoyable layout. The course has some excellent holes, particularly around the turn where play involves criss-crossing the Gelly burn.

Caird Park also boasts a testing 9 hole course, Athletics stadium, along with nature trails and the historic 16th century Mains Castle.

Read Review

Where normally you would have a fairly good idea regarding the distance and club required when playing summer greens, by shortening both the tee and greens on this course, the player really needs to know their ability and strength. What would normally be a 9 iron onto the par 3 12th is potentially a sand/pitching wedge. The positioning of the fairway greens is also a problem for players, based on the at times severe undulation of the makeshift green in comparison to the more often than not smooth, flat surface during Spring-Mid Autumn. Definitely a challenge for the less advanced golfer but at times feels like a pitch and putt environment.

Playing tips:

Select a club less than normal on most holes, or else you could find yourself blasting past the green or in danger from the rough/hazards.
