Hawkshill, a championship golf course at Newmachar Golf Club, opened for play in September of 1990. Designed by Dave Thomas, the golf course has been endorsed by Peter Alliss and is known as the toughest of all the courses in the area.
With water hazards coming into play on no fewer than seven holes, mature silver birch and Scots pine trees lining the strategically bunkered fairways and greens, Hawksbill is already acknowledged as one of the true tests of golf in Scotland. Although some commentators have likened it to an American layout, the real character of the course is firmly Scottish, with a similarity to the Kings Course at Gleneagles or Rosemount.
