Offering inspiring views of Aberdeen and Aberdeen Airport, Auchmill Golf Club is a municipal golf course with a world-class pedigree. Originally built in the early 1970s as a nine-hole course and later extended to a full 18, Auchmill was designed by the triumvirate of Brian Hugget, Neil Coles and Roger Dyer, meaning the course was laid out with the experience of a top golf course architect (Dyer), a former Ryder Club player (Coles) and a known British pro (Hugget).

Auchmill was designed to take advantage of its unique topography, meaning golfers will be challenged by a variety of lies andinteresting hole placements. Four par 5s will have long hitters reaching for their big guns, while tricky par 3s and challenging par 4s will have golfers of all levels working to put down a good score.

This wooded parkland course that plays to nearly 6,000 yards will not just give you interesting holes that are aptly and cunningly named - like "The Frog" and "The Quarry" - but it will also give players a great golfing experience for their money. With green fees ranging from £15 to £20, Auchmill Golf Club offers golfers a great golfing experience without denting their wallet.

The course has a unique design.

If you want a challenge of a course with fast sloping greens and interesting design it’s well worth the money.

Nice course, poor condition

Never seen a private course in such a state! Greens were bobbly, rubbish everywhere from trees and the local neds who liked running around stealing peoples golf balls including ours! Loads of under 16’s hiding in the bushes putting people off talking total rubbish. Shame as if these issues were not there it would have been quite enjoyable!

Nice course, fair condition, for all level of handicapers

This is my fith round of golf at Auchmill his season and was my favourite, the course was delayed in opening for the season until June and initially was not in great shape especially some greens but it has been improving over the preceding weeks and now fairways are nicely cut and the greens have improved alot. It's not a difficult course to play so all levels will enjoy it, it's inexpensive compared to others in and around Aberdeen so value for money is good.
Keep up the good work greenkeepers.

Auchmill

Due to an outing of non-golfers taking place we walked off after 12 holes. 3 hours to do 12 holes and I phoned the club to complain at the 7th hole about slow play but nothing was done about it. Cans were left lying on the course from so-called outing and they made no effort to speed up play at all. Very disappointed and 3 other grpoups around us also walked off.

Horrible condition of course

This course was awful. The greens are possibly the worst I have ever seen on any course. When I asked about some sort of discount due to the state of the greens and not being able to even complete holes due to the putting surface (play half a game) I was told that this is normal and they would do nothing about it.

See pictures.

Worst in Scotland

Course must be one of the worst in Scotland. Greens horrendous, bunkers have more weeds in them than sand. Empty beer cans/bottles lying beside every tee box and in the rough. Even had teenagers smoking joints in the trees. Could be a really good course but looks like everyone has gave up on it. Can’t believe the members are getting charged round the £500 pa mark. DONT PLAY HERE

But rough round the edges

Course overall is good, one or two greens are in poor condition, a few bunkers overgrown with grass/weeds. There must be a public footpath that runs through the course as there are plenty of dog walkers and kids loitering around. There are a few challenging holes and blind tee shots but also some par 4’s that are close to driveable ( on a good day ) so the course offers something for everyone. I have played this course a couple of times whilst up in Aberdeen to travel offshore the following day, it is decent value for money

Worst Course ever played

AVOID AT ALL COSTS! This is by far the worst course ever played so won’t leave a long review. Run down starter box, overgrown tee box’s and greens. More sand on the greens than down the beach. Rude couple in front who refused to allow people to play through. Awful course and definitely will not be back.

Poor really poor

Club house looks like it’s closed and has been for a while. Starter box also looks grim and hasn’t been open for a good while. Now for the course this is easily the worst course I have played in a long time not the course I remember from a few years ago. Greens..... I play on better fairways at Newburgh than the greens at auchmill. Doesn’t look like they have had any up keep at all. Tee box if you can call them that are shocking. Course looks very run down and in need of a lot tlc.
Really wouldn’t be in a hurry to play the course again.

Rapidly Improving Course

Course is being looked after superbly and all previous issues being either looked in to or addressed, greens being brought up to standard and fairways getting a decent cut!! Makes me want to join for next year even more!!

Good Condition and some nice holes

Had the course to myself. A little signage would have been helpful for getting into the clubhouse to get card and confirm booking. Enjoyed playing the course some very nice holes and it was in pretty good condition. The greens were running well. Great value for the golf now price. Would like to play it again.
