What's it all about?

Like all great Scottish ideas and plans – Carnoustie Beach Rugby Tournament was born in the pub! 2017 is our rugby club’s 40th anniversary and what better way to celebrate?

Unlike most plans born in the pub though – we’re actually going through with it!  We’re going to put on a spectacular event for you right here on Carnoustie Beach on 17th June 2017.

There are three draws – an over 35’s, mens and womens.

We know you love your rugby – and there will be plenty of that happening on the sand (rain or shine) but it doesn’t stop there.  We also know you like a decent feed and a tipple (or ten) so you’ll also find a fantastic array of food stalls alongside a beer and gin tent!

As if all that rugby, beer, gin and food wasn’t enough, we’re also hosting a vintage Volkswagen/MG vintage car show on the day so you can enjoy a stroll around looking at some beautiful motor vehicles between games.

Check out the full itinerary here.

Where's it all happening?


It’s all taking place on the beach in the beautiful seaside town of Carnoustie just 20 minutes north of sunny Dundee.

Carnoustie is very easy to get to by car, bus or train. Simply click the map to get directions.

If you’re travelling from a little further afield and need a place to lay your weary head, we’ll soon be publishing a list of places to stay in the area so make sure you sign up to our newsletter and we’ll notify you of that as soon as it’s available.
