Courses – Westhill – Murcar Links – Auchmill – Deeside – Kintore – Portlethen – Inverurie – Hazelhead – Newmachar – Banchory – Royal Aberdeen

West Hill’s challenging and undulating course provides a stern test for golfers of all levels. Murcar Links is an attractive 18 hole course and a European Tour venue, having hosted the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play in 2015. Auchmill Golf Club keeps its course to a consistently high standard whilst maintaining its natural characteristics. Deeside is considered one of the best inland courses in Scotland. Kintore is a mixture of picturesque parkland, and holes lined by trees and criss-crossed by burns. Portlethen has matured into one of the more popular parkland courses in the North East of Scotland. Inverurie combines an initial undulating opening nine holes followed by a more testing finish with broom, gorse and tree-lined mature woodland. The championship course at Hazlehead is arguably one of the best in the North East, if not in Scotland and was designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, the golf architect better known for designing Augusta National in America. Newmacher features two beautiful mature courses, designed by the world renowned golf architect, Dave Thomas. Balgownie’s front nine holes, one of two courses at Royal Aberdeen, rank amongst the very best in the world. Banchory offers a challenge with its strategically placed bunkers and mature native trees.
