Another Classic Carnoustie Country Classic

May 23, 2013

Golfers from Denmark , Germany , Ireland , Sierra Leone , the UK and the USA played in the tournament, which is held over Carnoustie Championship course and the Open qualifiers Montrose Medal, Monifieth Medal and Panmure Medal. Following the four rounds, the winners were announced at a prizegiving dinner, with Bryan Broberg, who is from Nova Scotia but now lives in Sierra Leone , named the winner of the Men's Championship. Lesley Dudgeon from Reigate winning the Ladies Championship, while Phil Bailey from Walsall clinched the Seniors' Trophy.

"I love coming here to play golf," said Bryan Broberg. "I won this tournament in 2007 and, hopefully, I'll be back to defend my title next year."

2013 competitor Rick Page from North Carolina is also planning to attend next year's Carnoustie Country Classic, which will take place from 19-22 May, 2014. "I'd come back here in a heartbeat," said Rick. "I've really enjoyed my visit to Carnoustie Country. Everyone is so friendly and the highlight was playing on Carnoustie Championship, the Open course where so many of the golfing greats have played."

Judy Winter from New Jersey was one of the 14 ladies who played in this year's Carnoustie Country Classic. "All the courses were great," said Judy, who came third in the Ladies Championship. "What a wonderful experience!"

And it wasn't only the competitors who enjoyed the Carnoustie Country Classic - so did the golf clubs who work together to organise and host this annual event. "The whole week has gone very well," said Bill Miller, Chair of Monifieth Golf Links. "This is the ninth year of the Carnoustie Country Classic and this is the best crowd ever. The atmosphere's been fantastic, with lots of very happy golfers on all four courses."

The Carnoustie Country Classic was also attended by two top golf journalists, Peter Ellegard, who writes for, amongst other publications, Great Golf Magazine, and Felix Reid from Germany 's top golf website golf.de. "The course are in incredibly good condition," said Peter, who was making his first trip to Carnoustie Country, which covers thirty courses within a forty minute drive of Carnoustie. "I've had an absolutely fantastic time in Carnoustie Country."

At the prizegiving evening, one of the several social events held during the tournament, the prizes were presented by the Provost of Angus, Mrs Helen Oswald. "Judging by the happy buzz around the room and the chat going on between friends old and new, the Carnoustie Country Classic is obviously an enjoyable and popular golf tournament," said the Provost. "It's also a wonderful showcase not only for the four courses which feature in the tournament but also for the stunning scenery, first class food, fascinating history and, of course, the warm Carnoustie Country welcome that make this part of Scotland so special."
