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.

Windy weather

Great course - almost 2 separate nines as one is hilly and the other flat

Some blind holes that make it all that more interesting

Definitely recommend 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.

As Expected

if we're in the region we always try to play Newburgh. Great course and always in great condition. Welcoming staff, both in the clubhouse and in the pro shop. Excellent value for money. We will be back.
