Hazlehead Golf Course's No. 1 course is the centerpiece of the complex that consists of two 18-hole championship courses as well as a nine-hole course. Designed by legendary golf course architect Alister MacKenzie, the No. 1 course has earned raves and compliments, with golfers praising it as one of top courses in all of Scotland.

MacKenzie - who counted Augusta National among his many brilliant golf designs - provided a true test of golf for Hazlehead golfers. Gorse and woodland provide hazards, making accuracy a premium at the No. 1 course. Playing to more than 6,200 yards from the back tees with a par of 70, the No. 1 course holds multiple competitions throughout the year, and visitors are welcomed to take their swings on a course renowned the nation over.

One of the top municipal courses you'll find, Hazlehead's No. 1 course gives players tree-lined fairways, with the first and last holes standing out and testing golfers' accuracy and skill.

Needs some investment

Played this course today. Lad in the starter box was nice and friendly.
The course itself isnt in great condition. Lumps of gravel sand all over the fairways, waterlogged in some parts, A bunker was water logged as well. It's quite clear that the best thing they could do with this course is close it and sort the drainage. I've played the Pines course next door and it's without a doubt a better quality course. Even with the poor conditions of the fairways the greens were actually in decent condition and some were a little tricky. Probably the worst condition course I've played this year.

Fantastic course layout and great value for money

Course layout was great, well above expectations. I had a really enjoyable, fast round - 2 hour 45 minutes. Greens looked very lush but were a bit slow for my liking - long putts I felt I had to rattle it.

Had a great experience and would highly recommend for only £20 hot time.

Only faults:
The starter was not very welcoming, I wasn’t told where the first tee was or given a scorecard - I had to ask for both.
Winter greens on the last day of June? - I was shocked to play up the 8th and 16th to find a winter green I hadn’t been warned about. This ultimately added 2 strokes to my score which frustrated me for playing golf at this time of year.
