Scotland’s Carnoustie Golf Club named UK’s most Instagrammable

A new study has revealed the most Instagrammable golf courses in the UK and one of the most famous in Scotland has come out on top.

Carnoustie was named top of the list, which ranks the best greens in the UK.

Jura Watches looked at the number of hashtags featuring famous courses and saw the Angus-based Links beat Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland and Celtic Manor in Wales.

One of Scotland’s most renowned courses, games have been played here for over four centuries.

The oldest craft club in the world, it is considered one of the best in the world and has been labeled “Golf‘s Greatest Test”.

Other Scottish courses included in the list are Muirfield Golf Course in East Lothian (5th) and Royal Troon (8th) and Trump Turnberry (9th) in Ayrshire.

Director of Jura Watches James Sellors, said: “Improving your golf game isn’t always about spending hours at the driving range.

“The right golf watch can serve as a sort of personal caddy – one that can help you improve your swing and your game.

“There are many golf watches on the market at different price points, but in general the watch will locate where you are on the green and calculate the distance you need to go, as well as various other performance-enhancing factors and trackers. .

“There are fantastic golf courses all over the UK for anyone to try out, so we wanted to find a list of the most popular to help people get started and playing golf.”
