Trump International Golf Links Scotland sits on a rugged stretch of the Aberdeenshire coastline. Covered in sandy dunes, the landscape is the ideal terrain for links golf. The layout of the golf course follows the natural contours of the land, dipping into the scenic valleys and tumbling across gentle hills. The course stretches to just over 7,400 yards, routed in a classic pattern of two out-and-back loops of nine holes. The golf course has a varied layout that offers both spaciousness and seclusion. Golfers will enjoy plenty of variety from hole to hole as well as panoramic views of the sea. Like any traditional links course, the strategically placed bunkers and prevailing coastal winds present the most formidable challenges. Five sets of tees make the course approachable for all skill levels, however.

Trump international

Played over 150 courses in Scotland, can honestly say this course is up there in the top 3 if not the best, course was in beautiful condition, best greens I've ever putted on staff very friendly and helpful, superb short game practice area. £150 was paid but worth every penny. Got lucky with perfect weather conditions. Expect it would be an absolute brut in windy conditions, overall a brilliant golfing experience.

Absolutely superb golf course

The course is absolutely superb. There is not a bad, or weak, hole in the 18. You have to be true and straight with all your tee shots to have any chance of getting into the greens. You also have to be longish as well as some of the holes are monsters....especially the 18th. The fairways are in excellent condition and the greens are very good. It is a lot of money but at £125 it is worth it.

Not for the faint hearted

This course is tremendous. The layout and scenery is breathtaking and not for the faint hearted. You have to be bold in your shot selection especially with the wind and elevations. I played on a Golf Now hot deal that was excellent value and there was hardly anyone on the course so pace was great. Play the tees appropriate to your handicap as it is imperative to hit fairways due to the punishing rough. In hindsight, I would have played the ones further up to give myself the best opportunity to savour the course and experience.

Spectacular

This golf course is simply spectacular. I’d been told very good things but it is way better than that. The condition is superb but the landscape and course layout are jaw-dropping. The day I played it was 40mph winds and rain squalls but even the horrendous weather conditions didn’t detract from this place. Obviously it’s very expensive and the showers/changing facilities are average at best but the golf course is incredible.

Well worth the effort to get there.

Played Trump International on 15/9/22. Course was excellent, greens average pace but in great condition. Layout of the course is stunning as the holes sweep through and around the dunes. A tough track with a strong NW wind that was only really at our backs on the 13th hole. Scores reflected this but it did not detract from the day.

Best course I’ve ever played

Came to Trump with high expectations and I was not disappointed! Wow. Me and my friends were blown away by the facilities, staff friendliness before even setting foot on the course. Every hole was beautifully designed and unique. You rarely saw other players on the course due to the way the dunes were set up. I took a photo on every hole because I want to show everybody when I get home. We will definitely be back

A must for good players!

The MOST BEAUTIFUL course ever! But also the most challenging. A slope of 149 from the black tees. A very complete practice facilities. Amazing clubhouse. Friendly staff.

A must go! But remember; you must be better than average golfer. Otherwise, VEGAS ball may be a good option. Bring lots of balls.

Caddies are highly recommended.
