Panmure Golf Club is a golf club close to the village of Barry in Angus, Scotland. Situated between the Courses of Monifieth and Carnoustie on the east coast of Scotland this James Braid influenced Golf Course is approximately 8 miles from Dundee 20 miles from St Andrews and within easy travelling distance of Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow. Panmure is the sixteenth oldest golf club in the world dating back to 1845, and is one of the 26 clubs that originally helped purchase the Amateur Championship trophy first played for in 1885. When the club first opened, in 1845, it was only a nine holes course which was laid by Robertson and Pires of St Andrews in the area of Monifieth. This was later extended to 18 holes in 1880. The Panmure Golf Club was then shifted to its present location at Barry in 1899. Today Panmure Golf Club is a traditional links course that is situated adjacent to the world-famous Carnoustie Championship Links and the Monifieth Golf Course. The eighteen- hole course was later modified and extended under guidance of James Braid in 1922. Interestingly, Panmure Golf Club is also one of the founders of the British Amateur Championship in 1885. Volume 3 • Issue 40 51
