My wife and I played here while visiting family in Aberdeen so this was very handy for us. Great welcome in the Pro Shop, very friendly, helpful and welcoming. We found the greens to be some of the best we played during our trip, true and fair. The club is somewhat off the beaten track but well worth the modest effort needed to find it.

Thoroughly enjoyed a last minute booking to play at Peterculter. Interesting layout on the banks of the Dee. Course feels very mature despite only being created in 1989. Welcome at the small pro shop was extremely warm and friendly, was even given a gift of a course guide as it was our first time.

Fairways were in pretty good condition, fairly tight with nicely graduated rough. The deep stuff was very deep! Lots of out of bounds on the left all the way round the course - you definitely don't want to have a dose of the hooks! its not stunningly long but the relatively narrow fairways keep you on your toes and the firm greens require a bit of thought to get close. There's some nice elevation change too as you drop down from and climb back up again from the Dee. A couple of the holes channel into a bit of a funnel just after the turn and feel a little claustrophobic but apart from that things are well spaced out.

At £40 each it was a little pricey compared to other deals you can get around the area, but the combination of an interesting course and a high standard of maintenance make it worth it.

Course was well maintained and fairways nice and lush if not a bit tight in places which made hitting driver difficult and you had to choose when you did. Tactical game of golf rather than overpowering the course. Most of the underfoot conditions were hard including the greens so difficult to stop the ball for a mere mortal like me.

I'd play again but not over others if they were available.

Friendly staff in the shop and clubhouse, food was nice.

Thanks for your review.

It can tricky if the Scottish Summer Sun makes it hard but we have a new irrigation system which should stop this ever becoming too much of an issue now that we can control the amount water which we put on our course.

Hopefully see you again soon.

Having seen this course from several weddings I had attended across the river, I had wanted to tick this one off my Aberdeen list for quite a while.

Have to say I wasn't disappointed, the course is sensibly laid out, fairways are reasonably generous and there is a nice backdrop with the river. I had played Deeside and the Paul Lawrie course before and this was similar and actually I preferred it to Deeside.

Staff were very friendly in the shop and clubhouse.

There were a few areas of the course that looked a bit scruffy but I would put that down to the lack of rain, the greens and tees were like concrete but the roll on the greens seemed true nonetheless.

I would definitely play here again, its tough to find tee times at good courses in Aberdeen and in such convivial surroundings I'm surprised this course doesn't rate higher

Thanks for your positive comments.

We are building a strong reputation and it is encouraging to hear that we are on the right tracks.

We now have a watering system which allows us to stop the golf course becoming hard and bouncy if the scottish summer sun shines.

Hope to have you along again soon


"Great Course - only 1 down side"

1 down side being, the signage between holes isn't clear, we almost missed out a PAR 3 on the first hole.

I've seen this on a lot of courses around Aberdeen though. There should be a pole behind each green with an arrow to the next hole.

Unfortunately holes 14 and 15 are closed but the rest of the course was a lot of fun. The whole course was very well looked after and the winter greens were excellent, well rolled and had a good pace. We played here during the summer and weren't disappointed with the winter experience. We will return for more rounds.

I was pleasantly surprised that the condition of the course was so good for the time of year. The surrounding scenery was stunning and the design and layout of the course is extremely good. I would happily return and may even enquire about membership.

Played this course the day after a family wedding (with hangover) and really enjoyed it.<br/> The fairways were firm and the greens were really good for this time of the year. It's not the trickiest course, suiting good iron players opposed to the big hitters. The views are tremendous, the course was good and staff very friendly.<br/> A great day and I would recommend giving it a whirl. Only thing to spoil it was my wife shooting 4 under par and taking me to the cleaners!!!
