The Club . . . .

The Carnoustie SCD Club is a non-affiliated group of Scottish Country Dancers, who meet on Thursday evenings most weeks from September through to May. It is located in the town of Carnoustie in the County of Angus, Scotland, the home of the world famous Champion Golf Course.

The Club hosts a number of open dances in larger venues in the town, of particular note are a series of five Summer Dances held in the Beach Hall in the Carnoustie Leisure Centre. These are enthusiastically attended by country dancers from the surrounding area and by visitors from abroad, and usually including some from the RSCDS Summmer School at St Andrews.
