Bump and Run

A great course that played to my distance. Played yellow tees at 5810 yards. A number of holes are blind from the tee, but they have guide post to give you a direction. Several holes require blind shots to the greens which adds to the degree of difficulty. Some elevated greens will require a skilled bump and run shot. Greens were faster than links courses I played over the past two weeks, however, they putted true.

Lovely course

Kept the driver in the bag all round. Tight fairways, plenty gorse! Challenging course and plenty strategic shots required. Thoroughly enjoyed it, good condition and some stunning views on course and from the clubhouse. Nice meal afterwards as well.

Shocking staff

When turned up we were informed that as we had booked through tee off times we had to play in a 4 ball. The two strangers that were on the tee asked if they could just nip off in front. The member of staff informed them no. We were infrormed that the course made no money of tee off times. We were also told the course was fully booked. This turned out to be a lie. We had a 2 ball behind is for front 9 and no one behind us on the back nine. It just felt like we were an inconvenience to the guy in the club shop . I have used tee off times at kintore inveruirie and several other courses and have never been forced to play in a four ball or made to feel like a burden to the course.

Stunning Views And A Good Variety Of Holes

This is a very interesting course with a good variety of holes. We played after a prolonged period of dry weather and although the fairways were hard and burnt the greens were in remarkably good condition.

Both the starter and clubhouse staff are warm and friendly and views from the large clubhouse first floor amongst the best you will get anywhere in the U.K.

Newburgh on Ythan does not have the appeal of its near neighbours on the Aberdeenshire coast but is very enjoyable to play and we would thoroughly recommend it to golfers.

Not maintained

The course has the potential to be amazing as the set out if well done. The state of the fairways and greens lets this down massively. The club house seems very nice and modern

VALUE AND VIEWS!

Played here as a warmup round after our overnight flights since we didnt want to spend a lot of money to duff it around in our drowsy state. Were were VERY pleased with this course! The front and back 9s definitely have a different feel (front being more hilly and newly designed but with some awesome views of the estuary, back 9 was original (and better) layout and runs along the estuary) The greens rolled true but were on the slow side. Fairways mostly firm, and not a lot of deep fescue near the fairways so you can at least find your ball and get it out. If you want a pleasant and inexpensive round in good conditions then do not pass this one up!!

Same views as Trump for one 20th of the price

Same views as Trump for one 20th of the price. Wind on the front nine was a 3 to 4 club wind. Great fun. Died down when you went down the hill for the back nine. Two very distinct nine's which made for a enjoyable contrast. Greens were in good condition and overall the course was in good shape. Would strongly recommend as a break from the high dollar courses. Just as much fun to play.

What a Course

On arrival on the course we were made to feel welcome by all staff, we were told where to start and enjoy - That of course we did. Course was very challenging and in great condition. Myself and my playing partner could not believe what a bargain we had just received . Over the 18 holes each hole had a different challenge and was in great condition and not taxing on our legs and After 18 we would have played again.Not one to be passed FANTASTIC.

An explosion of colors at Newburgh-on-Ythan

Looking back, it was probably good that we experienced such wild weather at Newburgh-on-Ythan. We saw rain and hail, and without that punishment, we wouldn't have been treated to such a kaleidoscope of colors from so many rainbows. The links was already looking fantastic with the gorse in full golden bloom. The modern front nine, built in the 1990s on high ground above the river estuary, starts off fairly widen open before gorse intrudes on several narrow par 4s and the par-5 ninth hole. The original back nine delivers the more classical links touches on flatter land, the blind shots and bumpy fairways. The holes - like the short par-4 15th and par-3 16th - get really good when the links cozies up to the river. Pound for pound, every golfer gets their money's worth at Newburgh-on-Ythan, If you don't have the bank account to play at Trump International Golf Links four miles south, this is a great alternative.

Played in a three ball on Saturday the 9th. The track isn't the longest, but lots of blind tee shots and strong winds made up for it. The greens were in excellent condition and a good test.

Two nice laps of 9 with lovely views of Newburgh and well worth a trip. I think Murcar/RA/CB/Trump are far more testing, but this is a great tune up course if you are planning on playing any of those in the near future.

Staff were also friendly and facilities modern and excellent.
