Peterhead Golf Club, one of Scotland's oldest clubs, offers two courses, the Old Course and the New Course. The Old Course was built as a nine-hole course in 1892 and extended to an 18-hole course in 1908. The golf course provides an excellent example of classic Scottish links golf. The course snakes along the east coast of Scotland, across valleys bordered y ancient sand dunes and covered with wild grasses. Gusty winds are a challenging factor on the course due to its seaside location. The Old Course at Petershead Golf Club is a formidable links course, but the layout is still accessible to both low and high handicappers.

Really nice traditional Links and club. Course layout very good and course in good condition ( after a difficult summer ). Green were a wee bit of a disappointment and not as good as we had hoped. Still a fantastic day. Stunning views of the beach and the coast. Some very memorable holes.

Hidden Gem

This is a fun links golf course. Took me 8 trips to Scotland to get around and play it and I regret ignoring it until now.

Fun layout on a pennisula of linksland, it does start slow but revs up in a hurry. Lots of elevation changes, some misdirection, tough putting and keeps you guessing all the time.

Not played by a lot of visitors and the ammenities were nil, outside a small bar.

Our group loves to play as many local links courses as possible and I would definitely recommend this one.

A few holes to die for

It's just my opinion!

Greens 8/10

Tees and fairways good.

1st 3 not really links land, next 3 getting better. Course really starts on the 7th tee.

You won't find better links holes than 7,8,9,14-17

5 great holes. No poor holes but 1st 6 aren't as good. The holes in the dunes are magnificent and why the course is worth playing.

Paid £22 - brilliant deal. Stated rate of £65 is too expensive (? £40 course).

Play again - at £22, yes!

More than a "Second Tier" Course

This is yet another course in the Aberdeen area that you might not have heard of. Like Fraserburgh, this is ideal to fill out a trip that is a few days. The course itself is proper links golf. You even get the views of the town. Like Fraserburgh, there are elevation changes and a hill is visited multiple times. MY favorite hole was the 17th with an approach to a sunken green. This and the first par 3 are the only places where blindness comes into play. The rest are where it "is all in front of you".

The club has the things you need-putting green, locker room, restaurant, etc. The only negative is that it is 65 pounds per round; maybe a little more than it should be compared to others in the area-Newburgh on Ythan and Fraserburgh come to mind. This is better than a "Second Tier" course, but wit the quality/name courses in the area it becomes one. I recommend it as I had an enjoyable links experience with enough interesting golf to make it worthwhile.

Classic North East Links

Fabulous course, it was very windy when we played which made it very challenging, The golf tee time was good value for money, although the normal price of £65 is excessive, although it is always a bit windy here it was very very blowy, pick a calmer day if possible
