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!

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.

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
