One of the newer courses in a land of golf courses that are over a century in age, Westhill Golf Club still brings three decades of experience to the plush Aberdeen golf scene. Built in 1977, Westhill quickly earned a reputation as a quality place to play golf and a great option for those looking to make the most of their Scotland golf vacation package.

Westhill Golf Club is an 18-hole run that plays to nearly 6,000 yards and a par of 69. Water, well-placed bunkers and challenging greens make the course a stiff test for even low handicappers. Well-maintained fairways and mature trees only help add to the allure of this course that sits less than 10 miles from Aberdeen.

And while the golf will keep a player challenged, Westhill also has what so many other Scotland golf courses present - spectacular scenery. Your companion during the round will include stunning views of the surrounding countryside and Royal Deeside, as well as the Grampian Mountains and Mount Keen.

Not great value for money

Booked in for 7.10am almost a week in advance, and upon arriving there was noone there to greet us/book us in. No scorecards left out (the pot was empty, a member confirmed this is where they would be).
Practice area - Fantastic. A short game chipping area, nets and a putting green on the first tee are fantastic to start you off.
The tee boxes and fairways were in good nick. Greens less so. Bald in areas and patchy in others.
The layout is a bit tricky to get around with minimal signage. But a member was able to point the correct way to go.
Course was playable. Just. But there are better courses nearby for £30 or less.

Not for us.

Too many blind holes and sloping fairways for us.
Some greens very bare but this is still early in the season

Seems like it would be an amazing course

This course seems like it would be an amazing course to play in the summer as the greens look well maintained. The course layout in the winter was a bit confusing for s first time player was a little difficult to navigate but All round seems like a great course

Thank you Westhill golf Club ,

Interesting enough

Don’t play here during winter. It’s a bit of a waste of time.
The rest of the year it’s fine though.

Course was in good condition and the greens ran true. Soft under foot in some areas but that was expected after the recent rainfall. I will be back to play again.

Tough

A nice, well looked after course, a tough walk for 3 over 60s. Some very interesting holes where accuracy is a must, other holes quite forgiving for wayward drives. Fairways and greens excellent.
No one at Clubhouse to check in and bar area closed.

Decent course. Greens could be better.

Course was overall in good shape. Tidy.
Greens weren’t great though.
Feels like at one time was a prosperous club which has fallen a little from its glory days.
Enjoyable day and fun had.

Westhill

This is a very nice course if you enjoy playing on a slope with hidden holes front nine starts on the short side which is fine then it gets longer with back to back longer holes got to think your way round but enjoyable to play on a nice day.

Westhill golf Course

Was aware of the hilly. nature of the course. which is built on the side of a hill, from an office golf outing forty years ago. Some things stuck in your brain for life. Pulling a trolley tested my wife and I physically, we’re both eighty next year. Lack of adequate signage on a few holes as to direction for the next hole tee was very frustrating.Luckily a friendly club member at the rear was helpful by sign language from afar. Greens while generally sloped and difficult to read., were in very good condition.Sloped fairways on most holes was an additional dynamic. Nice views of surrounding countryside on many holes were a welcome distraction. Competed the course In 3 hours and 10 minutes as no hold-ups, and with a somewhat dazed and euphoric feeling. A nice little course but not a great course. Be another forty years.

Winter greens - waste of time and money

Winter greens on every hole, winter tees, yellows worse conditions than reds, made up holes on fairways to make up 18 holes between 14. No direction round course. 11 quid i would rather give to the poor. Disgrace of a course in the winter. Do not recommend.
