Letham Grange Golf Club History
In 1976 a young Angus farmer stood outside a derelict mansion in the overgrown grounds of a woodland estate in Angus with the vision of developing a new golf course. He could never have imagined that within ten years he would be playing on what is arguably Scotland’s finest inland golf course that has earned itself the nickname ‘Augusta of the North’.
The Letham Grange Old course was designed by Donald Steel, and opened by the legendary Sir Henry Cotton in 1987. At 6,968 yards off the Tiger Tees, the course is arguably the longest inland course in the north east of Scotland. In 1992 a shorter course, The Glens (5,528 yards) was opened.
The Letham Grange Hotel & Golf Resort closed in early 2011 following an unresolved and lengthy dispute between a former owner and the liquidator. However, the golf courses were reopened less than two months later under the management of Letham Grange Golf Club thanks to the impressive efforts of keen members who often worked on a voluntary basis at the Golf Desk and out on the Golf Course.
Letham Grange Golf Club has been operating as a fully functional golf club for over 30 years. During that period 17 men and 21 ladies have had the honour of leading their respective sections of the club.
Past Club Champions
Letham Grange has seen some pretty competitive Men’s Club Championships during its short 30-year history. Only nineteen men have won the title during that time with a number of multiple winners.
The Ladies Section has been equally competitive with only eight different winners from twenty-nine championships.
