Worth A Visit

A course of two half’s, both enjoyable and challenging. All round positive experience, light wind, dry ground conditions. Definitely play again.

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.
