Poor condition

Course was in poor condition- greens had been punched - not mentioned on advert - should have neem a much cheaper rate.
Had food in clubhouse restaurant- very poor.
Back nine plays much better than front.
Pro shop was closed… on a Saturday….

Great course. Worth a quick drive N from Aberdeen

Great course made of 2 different nines. One is hilly and the other a true old coastal links by the sea. Buggies and hand carts available for those golfers who fly into Scotland. Quiet on the course so lots of choice in tee times. Course in great condition - fast and dry in summer when we played. Bar/Restaurant not open when we played. Not a bad drive north out of Aberdeen.

Golf day out

I tried this course out as I got a good deal on golf now , I found the course to be a fair challenge and enjoyed my round , found the course in great condition and the views was spectacular, I feel the greens could be a bit better but they wasn’t bad , I preferred the front 9 probably due to the history of it , the back nine was ok but more straight forward, the club house is spectacular with fantastic views over the course , I would definitely recommend and will be back one day

Tough links course

The course was challenging and particularly dry even for a links course which saw a number of ball bouncing in different directions of the concrete like surface. tricky to stay on greens if you landed just short.
but great course and would play again

Hidden gem overshadowed by the big names around it

If you’re looking for value for money this track will not disappoint.
Course layout is superb - very quirky and original, there’s not many course that have two 9’s totally different.

It feels like playing two different courses:
The original 9 (1888) is the current back 9 - played down by the river and sea, classic links style - relatively flat with undulating fairways, blind tee and approach shots. There really are some special holes here which I’d play totally different now that I’ve seen them. My back 9 consisted of an eagle, 2 birdies, 3 pars, 2 bogeys and a double - that just shows you how much of a rollercoaster it is, great fun.
The new 9 (1994) is the current front 9 - the layout is built on new acquired land on a hill above the back 9 looking over it and the sea. You get some great views from up there but theres not so much of a links feel to it until the 7th, that’s when the course really starts to play.

Course was in good condition, 3 weeks behind where they should be at this time of year (Last week in June) - but all courses in Aberdeenshire at behind due to the heavy frost over winter. Hence why I would recommend playing one of the links courses over the inland parkland courses if you were to choose one.

And this would be my one to choose, unbelievable value for money at £20-30 compared to £140 at Cruden Bay and Murcar. This course is definitely a hidden gem you have to play when you get the chance. Im already planning on going back later in the summer.

Play here

First time we have played here and made to feel welcome. Shop pro was helpful and also the restaurant/bar staff were very friendly. Greens are typical links and running true. We will be back.
